Introduction the piaget`s theory of cognitive development focuses on the development and learning theories development focus on the learners capabilities educational implications of the piaget`s. Cognitive development is not a steady process according to piaget’s theory instead of knowledge being something we gain at a steady rate, we tend to develop in leaps and bounds therefore, equilibrium occurs in different ways and is the key process children, specifically, use to move beyond simply assimilating things. The stage-by-stage nature of piaget's theory, with each stage linked to an age group for whom the stage is typical, strongly suggests to many people that at a particular age, children are supposed to be functioning at a particular stage. Much of modern cognitive theory, including its relationship to socialization, stems from the work of the swiss psychologist, jean piagetin the 1920s piaget observed children reasoning and understanding differently, depending on their age.
