    Am I missing something wrt his Chomsky reference at 6:07 ?
    Chomsky never said knowledge is pre-formed. Chomsky’s conclusions about language acquisition implied humans are born with certain mental framework for knowledge acquisition and anything that doesn’t fit the framework can’t be grasped/sensed or even be understood. This is somewhat similar to what Immanuel Kant had also argued before him.

    The problem is Who is the teacher and Who is the learner. If we apply logic the adult must be the teacher who knows the logical answer. Therefore if we accept that the adult is the teacher and the child the learner. The teacher by posing and prompting the child should direct the child to the right answer which should be that of the teacher.

  5. brunkke says:

    The idea is to use a language that the child uses to describe the objects. A more accurate description of the object is only better if the child knows the difference between the terms. Does it make sense?

  6. bilstew says:

    I notice that the teacher uses the words littleist and biggest when describing the sticks. Why not describe them to the child as “The Longest” and “The Shortest” This surely gives the child a more correct description of the objects.

    @bulletinthewind All children go through the same stages of development, but some take longer and some go through the stages faster. Piaget’s studies are accepted and taught at very prestigious schools throughout the world. So on behalf of the world, you should agree with Piaget 🙂

    It’s really obvious, too. You just need to know a teeny bit of French and you can tell.

    yes this kid is has a brain injury. lol

  12. micheals1992 says:

    I don’t think people really understood how important even the smallest interations are to our intelligence, that was until people started talking about how robotics was the future until they realised how hard it is to make a robot walk across a room or even pick up an object outside the normal logical perameters (E.g. picking up a bottle off the tablet which was unpredictably placed by a human as opposed to a productions line where they perform the same action over and over)

    My professor in a Childhood Development course I’m taking showed this video to us in class. Incredibly helpful.

  14. bulletinthewind says:

    This kid is has a brain injury for sure.

  15. bulletinthewind says:

    I don’t agree with what I have seen so far. His approach and ideas seem very rigid and a little ignorant. Firstly, you’re creating your own preferred outcome by using a kid who can’t copy something as simple as a triangle as an example. She was away with the fairies this kid. I was drawing and reading at a higher level than this at her age, and I’m certainly no genius, but, a triangle? C’mon.
