ED-321 P60 Educational Psychology First Educational Theorist Paper - Piaget July 2006 Applying Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development in the Classroom It is my goal in writing this paper to explain Piaget’s Theory of Development and how we as future educators might improve the effectiveness of teachers and students in the learning process. How does knowledge grow? Piaget spent his life searching for the answer to this very question. His research in developmental psychology and genetic epistemology was directed at elaborating upon a theory of knowledge about cognitive in children also known as genetic epistemology. His answer is that the growth of knowledge is a progressive construction of logically embedded structures superseding one another by a process of inclusion of lower, less powerful logical means into higher and more powerful ones up to adulthood. A child’s logic and modes of thinking are initially entirely different from those of adults. Cognitive development refers to the changes that occur in an individual’s cognitive structures, abilities and processes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
