JEAN PIAGET THEORY OF COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT 2
Jean Piaget’s is a Swiss developmental psychologist who invested a lot of his time in
developmental studies of human beings. His greatest contribution in the field of psychology is
the famous and most known Piaget’s cognitive developmental theory. Piaget theory is
universally accepted as developmental stage theory.
According to Jean Piaget, cognitive developmental is closely related to the gradual
maturation and environmental influence on human development. Piaget believed that children
have something in common regardless of their environment and where they come from. He
further stated that they try to compare new ideas from the context of what they already know
before mixing the interaction. After a series of comparisons, children will at the end of the day
learn something new on top of what he/she knows or even forget what he/she used to know.
One of the most important thing that humans at their developmental stage tries to
understand is language since it is contingent on knowledge. The understanding of one language
is through cognitive development. Piaget theory is directly applied in open education and child-
centered classrooms. Despite being a very influential theory, it supports sharp stages more than
continuous development. Piaget summarized his ideas on cognitive development of human in
four stages universally accepted as Piaget’s cognitive developmental stages.
Jean Piaget believed that young people undergo growth with brain development too as
they move past these four stages. In this theory, Piaget carefully observed toddlers and teens
through presenting them with queries to answer/solve. These objects or problems were related to:
1. Transitivity
2. Deductive reasoning
3. Object permanence
