piaget s final days
Piaget’s Final Days:
  • He continued working on a general theory of structures and tying his psychological work to biology for many more years.  Likewise, he continued his public service through UNESCO as a Swiss delegate.  By the end of his career, he had written over 60 books and many hundreds of articles.  He died in Geneva, September 16, 1980, one of the most significant psychologists of the twentieth century.
  • Piaget's oeuvre is known all over the world and is still an inspiration in fields like psychology, sociology, education, epistemology, economics and law as witnessed in the annual catalogues of the Jean Piaget Archives. He was awarded numerous prizes and honorary degrees all over the world.
piaget s theories
Piaget’s Theories
  • He tried to understand and label learning stages that children go through.
  • He based his approach on organized schemata.
  • At any point in a child’s development the use of language can only reflect the characteristics and quality of its existing knowledge system.
assimilation and accommodation
Assimilation in Piaget’s theory is described when children use the acts of incorporating objects or aspects of objects into previously learned activities.

Accommodation in Piaget’s theory described children taking new information and saving it because it was similar to old information or they disregarded the information because it had no previous relation.

Assimilation and Accommodation
piaget s 4 stages of learning
Piaget’s 4 Stages of Learning
  • Sensory motor(birth-2 years)
  • Preoperational (2-4 years)
  • Concrete (7-12 years)
  • Formal operational(12-15 years)
  • All 4 stages have specific characteristics in which the child will progress through.
sensory motor
Sensory Motor
  • The child, through physical interaction with his or her environment, builds a set of concepts about reality and how it works. This is the stage where a child does not know that physical objects remain in existence even when out of sight (object permanence).
  • In the preoperational stage of Piaget’s theory, children us initiative thinking and preconceptual thinking. For example, if a child posses a toy and then goes somewhere else and sees the same toy, the child will recognize the association.
concrete operational
Concrete Operational
  • As physical experience accumulates, the child starts to conceptualize, creating logical structures that explain his or her physical experiences. Abstract problem solving is also possible at this stage. For example, arithmetic equations can be solved with numbers, not just with objects.
formal operations
Formal Operations
  • In this stage they become increasingly competent at adult-style thinking.  This involves using logical operations, and using them in the abstract, rather than the concrete.  This is often called hypothetical thinking.
piaget s impact on human learning
Piaget’s Impact on Human Learning
  • Piaget had a major impact on developmental psychology. Today, he is still an inspiration to many different fields outside of psychology. Piaget developed the theory to help us explain how our minds grow over time.
  • The results of Piaget's work changed the way that teachers, parents and all those who work with and around children observe the children's behavior and response to their environment.
