The major areas of development include biological, cognitive and social and emotional development. Both of these psychologists were concerned with the study of understanding the area of cognitive development specifically in children and were considered to be constructivists. Constructivism is the theory in which “learners actively construct their own knowledge based upon the things they know now and have known in the past” (TFL resources, 2006). This essay will seek to compare and contrast the theories of psychologists Piaget and Vygotsky and will critically look at their theories to judge which aspects are appropriate for the long term. Jean Piaget focused his research on studying children and observing their thought processes.

Bloom's Taxonomy was created in 1956 under educational psychologist Dr. Benjamin Bloom in order to encourage higher forms of thinking in education, such as analyzing and evaluating concepts, processes, procedures, and principles, rather than just remembering facts (rote learning). It is most often used when scheming educational, training, and learning processes. (Bloom, et al. 1956). The committee identified three domains of educational activities or learning (Bloom, et al.
Critical Thinking Skills Benjamin Bloom was an educational psychologist. He created a pattern that could be used to help teachers categorize instructional objectives, goals, and assessments.
