What points on the map most resonate with your own beliefs and practices? Do they cluster in a particular area of the map?

It was very enjoyable exploring the map. If I had to choose two it would be: Non Trivial Constructivism and Collectivist Learning Discourses. But things could change. Does ‘Zone Theory of Child Development’ in red mean you think that Vygotsy’s theory of proximal development is unsupported by evidence? Or does this refer to something else?May 26, 2020 at 4:07 pm #1651Martina MetzKeymaster
Glad you asked. The Zone Theory of Child Development claims to be based on Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory (including his zone of proximal development, or ZPD), but it’s framed in terms of learning-as-attainment, which is inconsistent with Vygotsky’s work. In short: ZPD is green. ZPCD is red. Check out the (green) entry on “socio-cultural theory” for the real Vygotsky.January 3, 2021 at 8:20 pm #1801Brooke SenekParticipant
When looking and interacting with the map, there are several areas that resonate with me. However, if I had to choose two, I would personally say that Extrinsic Motivation Discourses resonate with me, specifically Operant and Classical Conditioning, and overall motivation, needs and desires. Throughout my own math journey, I found it motivating when I was rewarded, this was not necessarily a tangible reward, but instead the praise of getting a question right, or making a positive progress. Lastly, When the lesson and topic accommodated my needs, interests and desires, I was more engaged and eager to learn. Therefore, I believe that teachers need to be attuned their students individual needs, desires, and interests to connect with them in a more meaningful and positive way.January 24, 2021 at 3:42 am #1826Rachelle ThomasParticipant
