After reading and watching all of the materials on Vygotsky’s theory, think about a teaching or learning experience you have had, perhaps one that involved learning something really challenging, that involved scaffolding, the Zone of Proximal Development, or that involved transmission of culture through interaction. Explain the experience, and connect the experience directly to your chosen concept. Be sure to cite your sources (e.g. Vygotsky Reading, p. 2; Lecture slide 5; or ZPD video).
Next, write about how Vygotsky’s theory will help you in your future career choices. What concept(s) will you put to use, and how?
