Even though he died almost eighty years ago, his lifes work remains both relevant and significant to the field of education today.

This book examines Vygotskys emphasis on the role of cultural and historical context in learning, while challenging theories that emphasize a universalistic view of learning through fixed, biologically determined stages of development. Given our current preoccupation with standardized outcomes and the corporatization of schooling, Vygotskys most important ideas about education need to be reconsidered.

The primer provides an overview of his two best-known ideas: the zone of proximal development and the development of thinking and speech as a means of empowerment, and discusses Vygotskys views of the roles of critical and creative imagination in the formation of personal agency and in creative collaboration.

Applications to current practices from a wide range of sources clarify and promote relevance to diverse audiences. This primer presents the essence of Vygotskys work in language that is accessible to all students of education.
