The work of Lev Vygotsky is increasingly cited as we reconsider the theory and practice of constructivist education.Four basic concepts integral to his work: Children construct knowledge, learning can lead development, development cannot be separated from its social context, and language plays a central role in cognitive development.
Bob Dylan talks about the powerful impression books he read at school made upon him. He’s an example of scholarship working its way into a life of creativity and imagination. Here at the Royal Greenwich Trust School we hope that our students will also find their school experiences inspire them to live creative and imaginative lives in their own unique individual way. Dylan is a genius, but what comes across here is not being smart but being passionate about what he’s encountered and what he’s pursuing.
