Children behave differently at different ages and in accordance with their interaction with society in their lifetime. Their cognitive and emotional development happens with time and by the influence of their exposure to the world through social interaction. This module will help you to understand how this development happens over time and prepare us to respond effectively to different situations based on their level of cognitive and emotional development.
Thank you for embarking on this journey. For an effective learning experience, please switch off any notifications, and use a notebook to write down your learning and questions as you take the courses. Through this module, you will learn about Introduction to child development, which explains the basic psychology behind why children behave the way they do, focusing on two major theories (Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky) and how you can respond to student actions appropriately in a classroom by applying these theories.
