The organism in this conceptualization is able to detect and have access to an ever-wider range of stimuli and experiences. Should we relate it solely to biological or hereditary differences? Piaget didn’t think so, but he was busy discovering the universal elements (or “laws”) that govern a human being’s development, and he wasn’t interested in the differences between human beings. We argue that in Piaget’s approach there is no explanation either for the differences between people or for the process responsible for the coming into being of the cognitive functions that are activated in different situations.

This is the biogenetic individuality of the individual, who functions in interaction with the environment, takes from it what is required for existence, and that is all. There is also the sociocultural ontology, according to which human beings are the creation of society and are an outcome of interaction with the social environment, with cultural systems, and with means that only society can create. The sociocultural ontology supplies us with a more observable answer to the questions regarding the sources that make a human being a modifiable creature.

Students sometimes decline in their level of functioning and lose abilities that they have attained. Because human beings are responsible for their destinies, students must always be on their guard—yesterday’s good functioning does not guarantee that the same will be the case tomorrow. But this coin has two sides: Students can also be encouraged that the low functioning of yesterday does not preclude the chances of attaining higher achievement tomorrow. It is this expectation of positive change, and the willingness (of the mediator) to push for change, that maintains a positive and optimistic engagement that stimulates and encourages change, even when regressions or lack of change have been experienced.
