Conceptual Acquisition and Change through Social Interaction.
Kobayashi, Yoshikazu
Human Development, v37 n4 p233-41 Jul-Aug 1994
Examines the role of social interaction as a facilitator of learning in general and conceptual change in particular. Three conditions are proposed as necessary for social interaction to facilitate knowledge construction--horizontal information, comparable domain knowledge, and availability of cognitive tools. Suggests that these conditions assure the eventual confrontation of different perspectives and foster metacognitive awareness of one's conception. (AA)
