Piaget and education: a critique of the unproblematic application of Piaget's theory to education
Mabitsela, Babalwa Maureen
Jean Piaget’s genetic epistemology has often been applied to education. This research report looks at the interpretation and use of Piaget’s ideas to education and argues that most applications of Piaget to education are not in keeping with the nature and object of his genetic epistemology. As such the report suggests number of ways in which Piaget could be used in education without undermining the integrity of his theory.
