What children can do on their own is their level of actual development and what they can do with help is their level of potential development. http://www.funderstanding.com/content/vygotsky-and-social-cognition
For our OSCAR services training we can apply Vygotsky's Social Cognition theory by ensuring the feedback and support loop is clear, consistent and timely.
This will help students to understand how their practice / application of learning can get better, become more effective and adaptable.
As we have so many venues for students to practice their craft, it is important to ensure that the feedback is delivered to a similar level of quality and based on the same standard expected.
Social Cognition = learning within a relationship
