Adaptation

1950

Cognitive constructive theories such as Piaget's rely on the concept of adaptation, a combination of two complementary processes called assimilation and accommodation. When a learner incorporates the evidence of their senses into their mental world view, perhaps even by distorting their perceptions to fit that view, the information is said to have been assimilated. Conversely, when the learner's mental world view has to be adjusted in order to admit new information, the learner accommodates.
