Lev Vygotsky

Vygotsky believed that social interaction will lead to changes in a child's thought and behavior. That children will acquire the ways of thinking and behaving that make up a culture by interacting with a more intelligent person. The sociocultural theory is basically about how social interaction plays a fundamental role in the development of cognition/apprehension.

Lev Vygotsky

Vygotsky believed everything is learned on two levels. The first level of learning is through interaction with other people, then integrated into the child's mental structure. The second level applies his theory of the potential for apprehensive developement that is limited to his "zone of proximal developement" (ZPD). ZPD is the area of exploration for which the child is ready to learn, but needs help achieved through social interaction to fully develop.
