Welcome to the ZPD School and Curriculum Design Site. The purpose of this website is to inspire new ideas and actions in education. If you are looking for some fresh ideas about education, you have come to the right place! The Z in ZPD is about being in the "zone" - the zone of Professional and Proximal Design. The idea of using ZPD was borrowed from Vygotsky's research into ideal conditions for teaching and learning. Join us in the zone and check out the sections that might interest you.
