Zone of Proximal Development

The Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) is a concept from developmental psychology that determines gaps in a child’s knowledge and skills. It suggests that learners are given tasks that are too difficult for them to do on their own but, with help, they can learn the necessary skills needed to complete those tasks. The ZPD is used as a tool by teachers and tutors to help children master key concepts more quickly and efficiently.
