Summary
Jean Piaget was one of the most significant contributors to our current understanding of how children think and learn, from birth through to adolescence. This book captures the key concepts and principles of Piaget's fascinating work on children's thinking, and explores how thinking evolves and develops from infancy through the early years and beyond. Areas covered in Introducing Piaget include: key milestones and achievements in children's thinking; understanding the physical world through senses and movement in infancy; supporting the emergence of symbolic thought and language in the early years; understanding object permanence; implications of egocentric thinking in early childhood learning and development. Throughout the book, the consequences of these developments for children's social, emotional and intellectual development are discussed
