Theories of Development Jean Piaget’s theory of cognitive development challenged the notion that intelligence was an inborn trait. Instead, Piaget argues that cognitive ability is a byproduct of biological maturation and interaction with the environment. His theory suggests that children assume an active role in developing their awareness of the world. Young people develop their perception of the world, experience inconsistencies and finally make adjustments to adapt appropriately.

    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.

    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.
