    Nikolai’s provocation provokes us to think about what is Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). Did you see ZPD visible in the videos? If you did, what did it look like? How do you know what you saw was ZPD? If you didn’t see ZPD taking place, how do you know this?

    Hi Nikolai, I hope you are doing well. I have seen the second video and the video reminds me when we had a lot of discussion about ZPD in our reading group 🙂 at Monash. To me, the video is very good example of ZPD, where mum helped the child to understand how to get the toy from the gumboot. But instead of taking out the toy from the boot, the mum could have show the process of flipping the boot and show to the child how to get it..thank you 🙂

    Thank you for your provocation Nikolai and the clips to explore the ZPD.

    As someone with an early childhood background I struggled to observe the ZPD in the first clip. The adult taking control of the keyboard and directing did not appear a support to me, although perhaps this is because I am unfamiliar with this age group. I did wonder if the child, who might be assumed a digital native really was being supported to reach the next development zone or whether they may have been the expert?

    For the second clip at home I agree with Anamika’s comment on the nature and potential in this clip.

    I look forward to hearing your follow up on this and to likely being challenged by my understanding of the ZPD in action.
