Jamming and Social Learning Theory

Posted by Michael Hughes on Tuesday, April 26, 2011

There's a Russian fella named Lev Vygotsky who studied how people learn through cultural and social interactions. He has a theory called Zone of Proximal Development that essentially says we act smarter in the company of and under the guidance of experts than we do when we act independently.

So that explains why I love jamming so much: I play better when I jam than when I play alone. Folks in the Atlanta area who want to try jamming, join us on Thursdays at the Red Light Cafe on Amsterdam Avenue from 7:00 to 9:00.
