In other words interactions are about more than the child’s behaviour or performance: they are part of the process of exchanging views and sharing meanings. Let us now summarise what has been said in this section: • Children learn through interaction with more experienced learners—either older children or adults. • Interaction involves the sharing of meaning and requires the adult to pay close attention to the child’s concerns in order that the child can be helped to make the next step.

What we, the adults, do is crucial to their learning and development in the long term. ONE WAY OR MANY? Most of the research and theory quoted here has come from a Western perspective.
