The paper also examines the differences the theories of learning that each of these professionals developed in relation to education, and how their work can be applies to the classroom environment.

From the Paper:

"There are various approaches to classroom instruction within education today. As teachers are inundated with monumental changes in education, (such as the Federal No Child Left Behind Act and State guidelines), it is often difficult to develop teaching strategies that focus on how children learn, as opposed to a student's success rate in test taking. However, Piaget and Vygotsky both worked to develop concepts of cognitive learning that are significant to the educational environment because the realization and practice of these methods may aid many children in progressing successfully through the educational system. Piaget, (1896-1980) believed that children learned in stages, and that these stages correlated with the child's age group. "
