From the Paper:

"Jean Piaget (1896-1980) is best known for his observation that children learn qualitatively differently from adults and his theory that they pass through four distinctive stages in their intellectual development as they mature. This theory led to an understanding that children learn differently than adults and that there should be a developmental basis for how and what we teach children at various ages (Plucker). Benjamin Bloom (1903-1999) is best known for "Bloom's Taxonomy" which codified a hierarchy of thinking skills ranging from factual knowledge through comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation."
