    This review is from: Vygotsky’s Educational Theory in Cultural Context (Learning in Doing: Social, Cognitive and Computational Perspectives) (Paperback)

    After 30 years of teaching, I was looking for a book that would help me evaluate my teaching experiences as well as give me some new perspectives and ideas. This excellent collection of the findings of recent research based on Vygotsky’s brilliant work has provided me with both great insight and appreciation of my teaching career as well as the verification of my teaching instincts and the determination to follow through on what I feel are the best methods to use when teaching in today’s multi-cultural learning environments.

    Featured in the bestseller early-childhood reference of 2009, “Nurtureshock”, January 31, 2011
    This review is from: Vygotsky’s Educational Theory in Cultural Context (Learning in Doing: Social, Cognitive and Computational Perspectives) (Paperback)

    I just finished reading, “Nurtureshock” about the shocking results in the field of child development research and science. The authors discussed the use of the “scaffolding techniques” developed by the renowned educational theorist Leonid Vygotsky. This constructivist method (if it is implemented properly) does work and the kids are learning. The children are learning by leaps and bounds! The science proves it! If you are involved in the field of early childhood education (or if you’re a concerned parent), you really should read this book.
