Author: Michael Cole
Bio Note: Michael Cole is a developmental psychologist focused on the role of culture in human development and evolution. His early work combined experimental and ethnographic methods in the cross-cultural study of learning and development. Influenced by a post-doctoral year spent in Moscow with Alexander Luria, Cole increasingly drew upon cultural-historical approaches to development exemplified by the work of Luria & Lev Vygotsky to guide his research into the cultural mechanisms in development. For the past 40 years, his empirical work has been carried out in the form of design experiments implementing idiocultures in community-based afterschool settings.
