Is there a difference between scaffolding in biology, education and construction?
The best example of scaffolding in biology is when a broken bone is repaired. The body makes a temporary structure called the pro callus. Further growth takes places whilst the body undergoes remodelling.
In education, scaffolding is a variety of instructional methods or strategies used to move students towards a better understanding of a subject or topic until they gain independence in the learning process.
Scaffolding in construction is a temporary platform that supports and elevates workers and materials during cleaning, repair or construction of a machine or site. It includes one or more planks of convenient length and size with different types of support depending on the use and form.
