They finish the booklet with a theoretical dialogue of the cultural-historical origin for early early life technology schooling, by way of a version of training medical innovations to young ones in play-based settings, together with houses and group contexts.

We define development as a process where “children’s motive orientation and engagement in different activity settings change qualitatively” and as such their leading motive changes (Hedegaard and Fleer, 2013, p. 183). In early childhood this usually means a change from a play motive to a learning motive. But these constructs of learning and development are interrelated. We examine the relations between learning and development throughout this book through examples taken from our research and the research of others.
She argues that “understanding depends (like all other mental processes) on children’s affective attitude toward the circumstance affecting them”, born out in everyday “observation and analysis of countless pedagogical phenomena” and these observations “attest to the fact that given the same understanding, children often have different attitudes toward one and the same reality, experience it differently, and react to it differently” (p. 68). She goes on to argue that “experiences are products of the reflection of our relationship with surrounding reality” (p.
He uses the example of speech to illustrate this concept. For instance, for children to learn to speak a language, regardless of which country they live in, they must be in an environment where people are talking – this representing the ideal form of speech. The child who has rudimentary language, such as an infant, needs to experience the ‘ideal form’ of language if s/he is to learn to speak. The same argument can be applied to science learning in early childhood centres. If children are to learn to think and act scientifically, they too need to experience a scientific environment – however that is constituted.
