Have you ever wondered how you learned to crawl and then walk? How about language? How in the world do human beings learn to talk?

Child Development refers to the process through which human beings typically grow and mature from infancy through adulthood. The different aspects of growth and development that are measured include physical growth, cognitive growth, and social growth. Child development focuses on the changes that take place in humans as they mature from birth to about the age of 17.

On the other hand, Pedagogy is the art (and science) of teaching. Pedagogy is “how” the teaching and learning occurs. It includes how the content is delivered, including the use of various methodologies that help different children to engage with educational content and learn more effectively, recognizing that individuals learn in different ways. For a teacher it is important to understand that students are not empty vessels to be filled with expert knowledge. In fact they must construct their own understandings through a teacher’s considered learning experiences.
