Abstract

This poster will demonstrate the range and variety of ways in which Vygotskyan thinking and teaching can influence the practice of teachers and learning advisers. The theory of the Zone of Proximal Development is one of the features impacting on the management of one on one consultations and peer to peer support between staff members as well as between student mentors. The theory around The Word and its network of meanings and resonances leads to the practice of Buzan-style Mind Mapping and thence into the respect that must be paid to the autonomy of individual's intellectual development and workings.

KeywordsVygotsky; zone of proximal development; inner speech; empowerment; autonomy; mind mapping; metaphors; self-regulation; potential
