A schema is an organised package of information that stores our knowledge about the world.
It is a category of knowledge as well as the process of acquiring knowledge.
We each have many schemas, one for each aspect of our lives.
Schema Development - Equilibrium
Balance of schemas.
For example, all four animals are a horse.
Schema Development - Disequilibrium
New information: doesn't make sense in your schema.
For example, see a four legged animal but it's a pig?
Schema Development - Accomodation
Learn new information.
For example, learn new information about four legs.
Schema Development - Assimilation
Attach it to your schema.
For example, attach it to your schema/ adapt and change.
