SYMP 078 - V. V. Davydov: Philosophy, influences, and educational ideas

1.4 Interventionist research approaches and their roots
Symposium (Symp)
3:50 PM, Tuesday 29 Aug 2017 (2 hours)
V. V. Davydov has inspired a great deal of educational research in various western schools of education in general and mathematics education in particular. This symposium on some of Davydov’s educational ideas, their philosophical background and intellectual influences, is located within the theme of “Foundations: Theoretical and research approaches.” It brings together scholars who, from different perspectives and backgrounds, have been working within the field of Activity Theory and Davydov’s ideas. Its goal is twofold. First, the symposium endeavors to offer a critical appraisal of some of Davydov’s central concepts and to discuss the question of the philosophical influence in Davydov’s work. Second, it aims to present some current applications of Davydov’s approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics as well as to offer a contrast between Davydov’s approach and other approaches in mathematics education.
