Child Development and Education

Learning is modification of behavior through experience. There is a sort of interaction always going on between individual and his environment, both influencing and changing each other. He inherits only a few fixed patterns of responses. His interest, attitude, appreciation, skills and achievements are primarily the product of learning.

Child growth and development basically occurs as a result of both maturation and learning. Maturation refers to change in a developing organism due to unfolding and repenting of abilities, characteristics, traits and potentialities present at birth. Learning denotes change in human behavior due to activity, training or experience. Maturation and learning process are interacting. Teresa Mcdevitt wrote a book on child development and education especially helpful for educators.
