Explanation : Sensori Motor is the first stage of Piaget's theory of cognitive development. It extends from birth to
approximately 2 years. The main development during this stage is the understanding that objects exist and
events occur in the world independently of one's own actions (object permanence). Object permanence means knowing that an object still exists, even if it is hidden. It requires the ability to form a menal representation (i.e. a schema) of the object.
Explanation : The role of a teacher in the process of learning is that of facilitator: leading discussions, asking open-ended
questions, guiding process and task, and enabling active participation of learners and enagagement with ideas.
