Piaget, Super 8mm, and Preschool Development.
Brainard, H. Lois
According to the theory of Piaget, until the age of two the chief developmental factor of a child is the permanence of an object or the ability to retain mental images. Between two and six he begins to use mental images, and as he develops the ability to retain a mental image he begins to imitate things from the past which he has seen or experienced. At this point, the 8mm motion picture film could be used to assist children in moving from sensorimotor reactions to deferred imitation preparatory to the process of learning. Films of themselves would present an image which is abstract, and in order to solve this contradiction children would proceed to a higher level of thinking. Such films may provide a basis for helping children develop language concepts, understand processes, organizine experience, classify objects, and improve visual literacy. (Author/DS)
