The study expands on the notion of history in Vygotsky’s developmental psychology, to examine the implications of the consequences of societal history on schooling and classroom teaching and learning in the diverse socio-cultural contexts of South Africa and Finland.
Drawing on data from classroom observation—as well as ethnographic data, the paper explores the internal dynamics of the vicissitudes of history and culture; and their consequences on the diverse traditions of schooling, and practices of classroom teaching and learning in Finland and South Africa respectively.
