1st KEYNOTE Speaker: Gabriel Mugny_
Professor of Social Psychology, University of Geneva.

Influence of information sources on acquisition and appropiation of knowledge.

Cognitive developmentsl social psychology: costructivism resulting from sociocognitive conflicts between peers or between child and adult.

Competences are grounded in social context. Vigotskyj and Piaget have agreed on the importance of the social aspect.

Elements of developmental social psychology:
– It is by coordinating their own actions and judgments with those of others that the children are led to construct cognitive coordinations.

– Social interaction is the source of cognitive progress thanks to the sociocognitive conflicts which it generates.

– Regulations of a social nature which govern a given interaction constitute an essential factor.
