Lev Vygotsky (1896 - 1934)

Vygotsky is the creator of the socio-cultural theory that focuses on how values, beliefs and skills, and traditions are transmitted to the next generation. Engaging together matters. When a mentor presents a new challenge he draws the student to a zone of proximal development.

“Social interaction between a teacher and a learner give context and cultural values of the skill being taught”.
