image 3Dr. Vladimir Spiridonov (image to the right) and Dr. Dorothy Robbins organized an international Vygotsky conference in four Russian cities from June 20-30, 2000. There were participants from Germany, Finland, England, USA, Poland, China, Hong Kong, and Russia. The conference took place in Moscow, Zvenigorod, Belaya Kalytva, and Rostov-on-Don. The first part of the conference was theoretical with participants giving lectures on various topics regarding Vygotsky. The second part of the conference was practical. We took the train to a small Village two and a half hours south of Rostov-on-Don, where we visited a Golden Key school in Belaya Kalytva. During this visit we were treated to Russian hospitality, Russian culture, typical school settings, theoretical discussions, Interaction with Russian children and their families, and there was a final banquet.

The topic of the conference was: Zone of Proximal Development. For further information, please check the following website: www2bc.edu/~albertli/russia.htm. Below are a few of the photos from the conference.
