1BRAIN DEVELOPMENT AND COGNITIVE LEARNINGIntroduction: The core notion of cognitive learning is to develop the skill and ability to resolve issuesof an individual. While maintaining the entire process of learning every individual teacher shoulduse the technique of pedagogy with the help of which both the learner and the facilitator canequally participate in the learning process. The primary objective of an efficient teacher is tomake every individual student understand about the significance of learning. As a result, theywould be able to develop their mental skill and ability always. This particular study has provideddetailed analysis on how interactive use of learning process with the help of pedagogy can beeffective in enhancing the brain of an individual learner. Cognitive development and learning:Since birth, a child has the ability to acquire knowledge through various forms oflearning. The process of learning can be statistical or by analogy or casually but they never fail togain the knowledge. Their process of learning includes sound recognition, language acquisitionand the visual learning through identifying things (Kolb, 2014). The learning process of theyoung children is a process that undergoes social mediation and involvement of family, peer,teachers and even from the career objectives. Therefore, environment plays a vital role indeveloping cognitive learning among the young children. An eight-year-old child requires socialinteraction along with a learning environment to help them enhance the learning skill. Researchproved that the cognitive development and interest of learning in a child grows from the multi-sensory networks that grow in the child’s brain (Renninger, Hidi & Krapp, 2014). The brain of achild is the same as that of an adult brain and they too have the ability to think and have reasonfor it but children lack experience and through years they continue developing their learning and

This is becausewhen a child enters the classroom they enter a room that offers them diverse experience andslowly helps them increase their self-skills. A child has an ability to construct meaning of thingsin their minds. They observe their parents and other family members to get the idea of how tobehave according to situation. This is often marked as negative activity as there are many thingsthat an adult does, which is not acceptable from the children. Therefore, parents must carefullyjudge the process of learning of the children, especially the process of cognitive development.The imagination of the children is very important step towards the cognitive development. Thegenetic difference among the children also influences the process of cognitive development(Kail, 2015). At home, the child should be praised for their performance and similarly in theschools the teachers must praise them so that the child has interest in learning. The motivationand encouragement will help the child to get more interest and in this manner, their cognitivedevelopment will grow. A child when it is born needs the guidance of the parents, after few yearsalong with parents, teachers and peers also involve in their learning process. Cognitivedevelopment of child uncovers the link between the brain development and learning of a child.Components and theories of cognition and brain development related to childhood learning:The process of child development is normally divided into three parts; physicaldevelopment, cognitive development and the social-emotional development. Language is a partof cognitive development among the children. Their cognitive development enhances as theygrow up. Jean Piaget has proposed a theory establishing the stages of cognitive development ofthe children (Demetriou, Shayer & Efklides, 2016). The four stages deploy different ages of thechild. The first stage as proposed by Piaget is the sensorimotor stage. This stage starts from a
