In today’s market, the importance of smart phone applications and mobile development for businesses has increased greatly. Smartphone users are becoming loyal customers who spend more money than those who do not use these devices. In response to this, software developers have taken it upon themselves to develop applications that can help businesses succeed in mobile development.
The development of software applications is typically separated into two separate courses of action. In the first one, human development plays a large role. In the second one, technological development takes center stage. The purpose of this division is to ensure that the software being developed is functional, meets its designated purpose, and is able to perform as desired by its users. In the third part of the process, the software is able to fulfill its intended purpose and become profitable for its developer.
Human development involves the process in which people acquire and improve their skills through interaction with the world around them. This skill development can be broken down into three domains; cognitive, physical, and psychosocial. Cognitive development refers to logical thinking, analysis, reading, language development, and more. Physical development involves things such as motor skills, athletic ability, and ability to move quickly and easily.
Psychosocial development on the other hand encompasses emotional, interpersonal, and self-leadership skills. Emotional and interpersonal skills are the foundation of human development and are the basis of how we learn, interact, communicate, and relate with others. A person who lacks in any of these domains is considered to be lacking in psychological, emotional, and interpersonal development. To break down this three- Domain of development into categories, each domain of development must be studied separately in order to properly understand the category in which that particular individual falls.
One example of studying one particular domain of development is prenatal development. During the first month of life, a baby receives all of her or his needs through her mother’s nutrition and care. During the second trimester, new human cells called placenta and cord begin to form. The third trimester and on will see the establishment of the placenta and cord, the linking of the umbilical cord to the brain, and the emergence of brain tissue.
The fourth major domain of early childhood development is referred to as adolescence. Teenagers experience a period of transition where they are experiencing significant changes in their body and personal identity. They continue to experience these changes through the middle years of adulthood. Throughout adolescence, biological, social, and psychological processes are working together in tandem in order to establish and maintain their identity as adults. At this stage, development of psychological skills such as self-leadership and organizational skills are becoming increasingly important.
Development of the brain during adolescence is particularly important because it marks a period of time when the individual begins to explore and discover his or her own identity. This process, called neuroplasticity, is associated with major psychological and physiological changes. During the period of adolescence, there are many instances where biological and psychological factors interact in a complex fashion to define who an adolescent is. For example, during this time, the individual is more likely to experience mood swings, frequent changes in appetite, physical growth spurts, self-directed learning, and changes in personality.
In the last stage of childhood, development of the cognitive and language-based motor skills, along with language development, typically occur. Development of academic, emotional, and behavioral skills, as well as self-reflection and social relationships occur. These stages of childhood represent the bridge between childhood and adulthood. In order for children to be successful in the adult communities, they must be successful in the early childhood stages of development.
