Lev Semyonovich Vygotsky stressed that with a proper education, everyone's needs will be met and everyone's life will be fulfilled. Vygotsky developed an unusually deep understanding of the importance of past experiences and prior knowledge in making sense of present experiences and new situations" (Preston and Vogel, Methods of Teaching: Applying Cognitive Science to Promote Student Learning, 1993). He believed that all new knowledge and newly introduced skills are influenced by each student's social surroundings, especially, family life.
Vygotsky explained the central role that language plays in cognitive development. He believed that language skills are critical for creating meaning and linking new ideas to past experience and prior knowledge. He emphasized that these internalized skills or psychological tools are used to gain mastery over one own behavior and cognition. (Hamilton and Ghatala, Learning and Instruction, 1994) Vygotsky research concludes that language largely determines the ways a child learns how to think since it is through words that we organize complex concepts.
Learning, according to Vygotsky, always involves some type of external experience being transformed into internal processes through the use of language" (Feden and Vogel, Methods of Teaching: Applying Cognitive Science to Promote Student Learning 1993).
