What is the Emergent Learning Theory?

The emergent curriculum is rooted in the constructivist theories of Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, and John Dewey who assert that children develop their own knowledge, intelligence, and morality through a series of developmental stages in collaboration with others.

 

The emergent curriculum is a process where educators plan activities and projects based on the specific student they are working with, taking into the developmental needs, talents, and passions of the child.
