A to Z of Teaching


Jean Piaget (1896-1980) was a Swiss psychologist, famous for his theories on child development. He was one of the first people to consider cognitive development in stages and proposed that thinking processes developed alongside biological maturation.

Piaget focused primarily on the learning and education that occurs in early childhood. He believed that children construct an understanding of the world around them and that learning happens when they experience discrepancies between what they already know and what they discover within their environment.
