Jean Piaget's theory of cognitive development suggests that children move through four different stages of intellectual development which reflect the increasing sophistication of children's thought Each child goes through the stages in the same order, and child development is determined by biological maturation and interaction with the environment.
On this staircase, Piaget labeled four stages of cognitive growth that occurred at an approximate age in children. Sensorimotor Intelligence, from birth to age 2. Preoperational Thinking, from ages 2 to 7. Concrete Operational Thinking, from ages 7 to 11. Formal Operational Thinking, from age 11 on.
In terms of constructivist teaching, the perspective of Jean Piaget's theory has had a significant influence (Kaplan, 2018). According to this theory, knowing is an adaptive activity associated
Piaget’s theory also postulates that a child is an active investigator who acts upon his environment with reflex responses during infancy and then with more complex responses that emerge from early interactions. Piaget views interaction as a two-way process, one of which is accommodation and the other is assimilation.
Teaching for active learning means:1. Becoming a facilitator and guide
Piaget's theory of constructivism impacts learning curriculum because teachers have to make a curriculum plan which enhances their students' logical and conceptual growth. Teacher must put emphasis on the significant role that experiences-or connections with the adjoining atmosphere-play in student education. For example, teachers must bear in
Active learning allows students to be more active in the process of learning and teacher should give more opportunities to them to learn through their …
directed activities to build their learning knowledge. Jean Piaget (1896- 1980) Piaget is one of the leaders of constructivism theory. In fact, he added the important that explains the change in mental of human being through ages, which knew as knowledge’s levels. Fist level, from age 0 to 2 years called Sensor motor Period.
The basics of cognitive theory are considered to have begun with John Dewey (1933/1998). In the mid- and latter-twentieth century, Jean Piaget and Jerome Bruner were among the leaders in forwarding the constructivist subset of cognitive theory. Bruner posited that discovery leads one to become a constructionist (Anglin, 1973).
Online Learning, 21(3), 166-190. doi: 10.24059/olj.v21i3.1225 Introduction In a provocative chapter of The Theory and Practice of Online Learning, Terry Anderson (2011) examines whether a common theory for online education can be developed. While
Jean Piaget focussed on the cognitive experiences of the child in a world connected by objects and people and the recognition of these. Piaget developed his theory of (cognitive development) through a close study of children. He made extensive use of note-taking in order to make comparisons and the analysis of all his observations.1.

Piaget's Theory of Learning Ahmad Aqeel Ayyal Awwad Ministry of Education Abstract Learning is an agent necessity process for man; man is born on this earth weak, incapable and helpless. Through learning man can be graded until he become able to face life's problems and his inability turns to be innovate impossible things.
Piaget’s theory of cognitive development proposes that young children’s intelligence changes as children age and that it is not about gaining knowledge but constructing knowledge from a mental picture of the world around them. These mental structures that we now refer to as schemas enable children to function through a series of stages:
Jean Piaget's (1985) theory of cognitive constructivism proposed that knowledge cannot be simply transmitted to a person but must be constructed through experience. Experiences allow individuals to construct mental models or schemas, and knowledge construction is based on a change in schema through assimilation and accommodation.
However, the constraint is still on the definition of active learning itself. This article discusses the nature of Active Learning from the perspectives of four theories: Dewey's theory of progressive education, Piaget's theory of assimilation and accommodation, Vygotsky's theory of social context and zone of proximal development, and theory of

is primary in the learning process, while Vygotsky believed that social life is primary in the learning process. As Dimitriadis and Kamberelis (2006) note, “Piaget grounded his developmental learning theory in the individual learner and positioned children as active, intelligent, creative constructors of their own knowledge structures” (p.170).
Teaching for active learning means:
What is Educational Theory? Educational Theory is a study area that seeks to understand how people learn, how people apply what they have learned, and how to improve the efficiency of educational programs.
The cognitive development theory is based on the development of human intelligence. The central concept of the theory is that children actively construct their own cognition or knowledge as a result of their independent explorations.
