Differences in map representation by Indian and American adolescents



Perceptual and Motor Skills 82(3 Pt 2): 1232-1234

Piaget and Inhelder (1967) outlined three stages of spatial representation of the environment culminating in an abstract map-like understanding of space. 120 boys and 120 girls from India and the USA were asked to draw a map of their neighborhoods displaying roads and other landmarks, especially their homes and schools. Analyses indicated both gender and cross-cultural differences in the stage performance of the participants. Implications of these findings as well as future lines of research are discussed.
