I recently was doing a training on How to Teach Today’s Learners. I remembered that Vygotsky had a lot of good ideas that we have built upon since his time. When I suggested to the group to use scaffolding they looked at me a little funny. So, I stepped back and created this infographic in an attempt to lay a foundation for many of our present day teaching techniques.

Enjoy,
