Lev Vygotsky
Lev Semyonovich Vygotsky is a Soviet psychologist known for his work on the psychological development of children. He has published on many different topics and from many angles as his opinions evolve over the years. Among his students was Alexander Luria. He is best known for his concept of the proximal zone: the gap between what a student can do on their own and what they can accomplish with the help of someone more knowledgeable about the activity. Vygotsky sees ZPD as a measure of the maturity of skills, as a complement to the growth metrics that rely solely on learner independent competencies. His work on the relationship between language and thought, linguistic development and a general theory of development through actions and relationships in a socio-cultural environment also has a great impact. . Vygotsky has been the subject of great scholarly debate.
