Study Notes

Jean Piaget's Cognitive Development Stages

  • Jean Piaget proposed four stages of cognitive development: Sensorimotor, Preoperational, Concrete Operational, and Formal Operational.

Sensorimotor Stage

  • Age range: 0-2 years
  • During this stage, infants and young children learn by using their senses and motor skills to interact with the environment.

Preoperational Stage

  • Age range: 2-7 years
  • Children develop symbolic thinking and learn to use language, but still have limited ability to consider other people's viewpoints.

Concrete Operational Stage

  • Age range: 7-11 years
  • Children develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills, but only with concrete objects and events.

Formal Operational Stage

  • Age range: 11-15 years and beyond
  • Adolescents and adults develop the ability to think abstractly and reason logically about abstract concepts and hypothetical situations.

Test your knowledge on Jean Piaget's theory of cognitive development and his four stages of learning. From the sensorimotor stage to the formal operational stage, challenge yourself to see if you can recall the key concepts and characteristics of each stage.
