Vygotsky’s theory was sociocultural. He believed that social interaction was a key part of learning because it provided more support throughout the learning process by discussing concepts with more knowledgeable people, such as friends, family members or teachers. Children may also learn societal behaviours and cognitive processes throughout social interaction with others. Independent studying may hinder the learning process as a child may have nobody to turn to when they cannot understand a concept. Play can be a great form of social interaction for children.
