Dear Vitaly, the celebration of your 70th birthday is a
wonderful opportunity to thank you for many reasons. First, for your remarkable
contributions to educational theory and practice. Standing on the shoulders of
your important predecessors, aware of the role of social interactions for
cognitive development, you have drawn attention to the need to consider not
only adult-child but also child-child interactions. This has led you to invite
educators and researchers to investigate with care the organization of the
relationships in which students get involved in group work. You have found that
cooperation is not sufficient. Reflection on the joint activity should be built
into the pedagogical tasks to foster second-level understanding and facilitate
the transition to a more efficient activity and to a further development of
students' skills. This is an important inspiration for my on-going research
