Vygotsky's Social Constructivism
Internal changes in thinking as a result of external events. Learning is contextual. (He concerned some of his work with internal changes, so sometimes viewed as psychological). Interested in the impact of cultural tools (Reading, writing, modes of discourse). Ex. Child reads about ducks landing in tailing ponds, is upset, asks how people could create a hazard that leads to suffering, and increases understanding of values directing human behaviour.
