Example text

Mediating the Learning Experience 27 The two approaches—the “stimulus-response (S-R)” model and the “stimulus-organism-response (S-O-R)” model—both assume that it is enough for a person to be in a kind of dialogue with the world, nature, and the surrounding stimuli in order to experience cognitive and intellective development. According to Piaget, the only requirement is for the organism to be at a certain level of maturity, to have reached a particular stage of development, and to be engaged in an active interaction with the world.

WHAT MAKES US MODIFIABLE? When we ask what makes a human into a modifiable being, we now have an answer—modifiability is imparted to a human being by virtue of the mediation through which the world is mediated to him or her and creates tools and the preconditions necessary to become modified. From this standpoint, a human being is a unique creature. Although there are indications of mediation also in the animal world, they do not enable animals to transmit their experience to their descendants. Animals are limited in their ability to transmit their experience because they lack transmission tools.

The Triple Ontology of Development We can begin to consider these questions by examining the general course of human development. We have adapted a conceptualization of the French thinker Rom Harre, who proposed two major sources of development (a double ontology)—the biological and the social (Harre & Van Langen Rove, 1991). From the biological standpoint, the developing human being is a kind of community of cells that have coalesced and function together in a very organized, planned, and coordinated manner.
