Mental and social development

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Vjeran Katunaric

Social development theory attempts to explain qualitative changes in the structure and framework of society that help the society to better realise aims and objectives. Development in this context means all societies at all historical periods as an upward ascending movement featuring greater levels of energy, efficiency, quality, productivity, complexity, comprehension, creativity, mastery, enjoyment and accomplishment. Development is a process of social change, not simply a set of policies and programmes designed to produce specific results. During the last five centuries this process has picked up in speed and intensity.

This module looks at a brief history of mental and social development, how societies evolve, social interaction and why it is important, and how and why we learn about other cultures.

We will explore

  • A brief history of mental and social development
  • The evolution of society
  • The way we interact with other cultures
  • Why it is important to ‘grow’ together
  • How can we best share knowledge with other cultures?

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
