Summary

Educationalists espoused Piaget's theory of cognitive development with enthusiasm in the late 1960's. Since then however, Piaget's models have been widely criticised and have fallen out of favour. The Neo-Piagetians, as they have been dubbed, attempt to preserve the best of traditional Piagetian ideas and combine them with the results of recent empirical research. In this collection, an international array of the world's leading scholars show how new research and diverse research traditions can be reconciled with many of Piaget's models to provide useful insights into many of the problems faced by researchers in educational settings.
