Usually only the difficulties which the child meets on this path bring him to the second stage. Succumbing to the ever prevalent tuberculosis his short life ended 38 years later. Vygotsky argues that the use of signs leads to a specific structure of human behavior, which breaks away from mere biological development allowing the creation of new forms of culturally-based psychological processes — hence the importance of cultural-historical context: individuals could no longer be understood without their cultural environment, nor society without the agency of the individuals who use and produced these artifacts. Therefore the only good kind of instruction is that which marches ahead of development and leads it; it must be aimed not so much at the ripe as at the ripening functions. Scaffolding is an inherent characteristic of games, either in virtual or in physical life.

Lev Vygotsky nursed them both which led to his contracting the diseaseand his early death. Their transfer inward is linked with changes in the laws governing their activity; they are incorporated into a new system with its own laws.

So, there is no doubt that he has shaped and made the notion of 'constructivism'. What is the Theory of Scaffolding? Celebrating the 115th anniversary birth of P. To Vygotsky, consciousness emerges from human activity mediated by artifacts tools and signs. But nowadays, unfortunately, very few scientists produce a constructivist program or software, which is used by billion of learners who became the victim of this product in one direction. By the way, he was certainly influenced by a number of thinkers, philosophers and psychologists like Dewey and Montessori. While individuals' actions frightening game are different from the overall goal of the activity hunt , they all share in the same motive obtaining food.
