Zone of Proximal Development

The Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) is a concept in educational psychology introduced by Lev Vygotsky. It refers to the gap between a learner's current level of ability and their potential level of development with the guidance and support of a more knowledgeable individual. The ZPD emphasizes the importance of scaffolding and providing appropriate challenges to facilitate learning and skill development. It recognizes that learners can achieve more with assistance than they can on their own, promoting optimal growth and progress.
