Sociocultural Theory was created by Lev Vygotsky His theory emphasizes that a child mind develops through sociall mediated processes, as well as children learn best in their zone of proximal development.
Vygotsky's theory supports the idea that parents, caregivers, peers, and the culture were responsible for the development of higher order of functions (Cherry, 2015).
Vygotsky's theory presents the idea that social interactions with childrenren lead to several changes in the child's behavior, thoughts and vary from culture to culture.
According to Vygotsky's theory, the development of a child depends on the social interaction with the others and "the tools that the culture provides to help form their own view of the world" (Gallagher, 1999).
Vygotsky's also stated that "every function in the child's cultural development appears twice; first, on the social level, and later, on the individual level; first between people (interpsychological) and then inside the child (intrapsychological).
