Abstract:

L.S. Vygotsky, the renowned Russian psychologist, argued that the true test
of any scientific theory is not the contribution it makes to our
understanding of the object of study but the extent to which it improves
the concrete practical activities of people, including those that take
place in educational settings.  The fourteen original chapters included in
the present volume document innovations in second and foreign language
teaching that are rooted in Vygotsky's theory of cognitive development. 
Researchers and language teaching practitioners will find implementations
at the classroom and programmatic levels of Vygotskian principles and
concepts, including cognitive mediation, the zone of proximal development,
activity theory, internalization, verbalization, and materialization.
