What is the ZPD? Or, How To Clean A White Board, or Mumbo Jumbo Theory

April 12, 2017

 

Dear WinkWorld Readers,

I was recently reminded of this story, which was published originally in “A Vision of Vygotsky,” a book which Le Putney and I wrote and published in 2002. I’ll post the complete citation at the end of this blog post.

Yes, in this article, you will learn a little about the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), a little about educational thought leaders, and a little about how to clean a white board, when it has been smeared with red permanent marker.  The ‘mumbo jumbo’ comment near the end of this story came from a student.  

Yes, this really did happen–you cannot make up stuff like this.

Happy Reading.

Mumbo Jumbo Theory
