Kristen Simon Educational Psychology Take Home Test #1 Explain how the Basic Assumptions of Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development reflect the Basic Principles of Human Development. Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development states that children are active/motivated learners. This is reflected in the Basic Principles of Human Development where it is said that development is continually affected by both nature and nurture. So depending on how a certain child is brought up by both the nature of their parent and the nurturing of their parent will affect how motivated or how active they are as a learner. Also Piaget suggests that cognitive development occurs through four different stages whereas the Principles of Human Development state that there are periods of rapid growth followed by periods of slower growth. Although Piaget’s theory suggests that there is cognitive growth going on in all of his stages it does not mean that in some stages the growth is slower than another. Also the fact that Piaget believes in stages coincides with the Basic Human Principle that development happens in a somewhat orderly and predictable fashion.
