2.3 Chapter Summary

While the approaches taken by Piaget and Erikson are not the only ways to look at development, they offer valuable insights into how learners approach tasks and relationships in a learning environment. While Piaget focused on cognitive development, Erikson provided perspective on how learning and development occur within a larger social context. The next chapter will explore theories specifically targeted to learning.
