The educational implications of Bruner’s theory of cognitive development are as follows:
- The techniques of discovery and inquiry should be incorporated in the curriculum to develop and enhance the learner’s problem solving skills.
- The child’s stages of intellectual development must be taken into consideration while framing the curriculum
- Children’s perspective of the world must be considered and involved when teaching a subject matter.
- The curriculum should enhance the existing skills of children and focus on mastering these skills.
- Learning by discovery and organizing the concepts that need to be taught must be focused while teaching.
