Does Culture and Society Affect Individual Development? With Hannah Movassagh Nekounam

Sunday November 6th, 2022 at 4:00PM London Time Zone

Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory of Cognitive Development

Hannah has been employed as an educator since 1995, starting in therapeutic settings in the NHS, UK, then moving into mainstream and then private education. In 2010 she gained her MA in Education, and was motivated by the impact of collaborative learning on pedagogy, and responding to both local needs and those resulting from globalisation. Hannah will share insights driven from her work and education in Oxfordshire, and later in both the North and South of the UK, then experience as an international teacher in Central Asia.
