Lev Vygotsky's Sociocultural Theory
More Knowledgeable Other / Zone of Proximal Development: Sociocultural theory was created by Lev Vygotsky as a response to Behaviorism. The main idea of the theory is that the ways people interact with others and the culture they live in shape their mental abilities. Vygotsky believed that parents, relatives, peers and society all have an important role in forming higher levels of functioning. Sociocultural theory, as stated by Cole, John-Steiner, Scribner, and Souberman, is the belief that "every function in the child's cultural development appears twice: first, on the social level, and later, on the individual level."  This means that the skills children learn first are related to interactions with others and they then take that information and use it within themselves

Building relationships is essential for our success. Our team at the KC Sudbury School prioritizes relationships of equity. I am really excited to be a part of a community of practice, where I can share my work, gain perspective from the sharing of others and engage in a creative collaboration that will amplify our collective wisdom.

Time & Talent has chapters in USA, about 5 or 6 very small start up in Michigan, and many chapters in the UK. Also there is a international feature in T&T allowing members to trade specific offers and request among ALL the chapters around the world. Community Weaver is I believe is manly used here in the US. No nearby Chapters to Detroit or Ann Arbor. I did not do further research.

Community Weaver for under 30 members will cost about 60 dollars per year. Time & Talent for any number of members is free. However IMHO I think this start up should request 2 dollars per month per member regardless what data base application we decide to use.
