Vygotsky's Developmental Theory. An Introduction | Davidson Films, Inc. (04' 01" [Google Viedos]
 The work of Lev Vygotsky is increasingly cited as we reconsider the theory and practice of constructivist education. This program introduces the life, vocabulary and concepts of Lev Vygotsky. The film illustrates four basic concepts integral to his work: 1) children construct knowledge; 2) learning can lead development; 3) development cannot be separated from its social context; and 4) language plays a central role in cognitive development. Dr. Elena Bodrova, Russian-trained, brings an easy familiarity to these concepts. Dr. Deborah Leong’s commentary and the lively classroom examples enable students, teachers in training, and classroom teachers to incorporate these concepts into their understanding of child development. (1994) 28 minutes. (This is a 4-minute clip from the film). This film is part of the acclaimed Davidson Films, Inc. GIANTS series, which also includes films on the work and lives of Mary Ainsworth, Albert Bandura, John Dewey, Erik Erikson, Maria Montessori, Jean Piaget and B.F. Skinner
