The whole paper mainly focuses on the introduction and analysis of Piaget, Vygotsky and Bruner's pedagogy theory, their influence on teaching, and the similarities and differences of their theories against each other. The three of them have made important contributions to the development of world education, guiding the development of teachers' teaching in different directions.
