Hi, Would anyone kindly help me with a question? I am stuck on Lesson 2, question 2 part C
'Choose at least 4 development theorists from the list below. Provide an explanation of their theory and for each theory provide details on how this theory influences current practices.'

What does it mean by "provide details on how this theory influences current practices"?

Help with this would be very much appreciated.

it is asking you to tell them how the theory's are used in class today?
e.g. Frederick Skinner's theory of operant conditioning, he was a behaviourist and believed in a system of rewards and punishment. it is influenced in current practice by ignoring undesired behaviour and praising positive and having reward systems - stickers, charts, stars, smiles, certificates and so on.

Hope this helps.
