ZPC and ZPD: Zones of Teaching and Learning

Anderson Norton Beatriz S. D'Ambrosio 

May 2008, Volume 39, Issue 3, Page 220

Abstract:
The goal of this article is to examine students' mathematical development that occurs as a teacher works within each of 2 zones of learning: students' zones of proximal development (ZPD) and students' zones of potential construction (ZPC). ZPD, proposed by Vygotsky, is grounded in a social constructivist perspective on learning, whereas ZPC, proposed by Steffe, is grounded in a radical constructivist perspective on learning.
