The REMA Model: Jean Piaget

A psychologist suggested to me that the REMA model is similar to Jean Piaget’s Sensorimotor/Adaptive model of Intellectual Development, specifically the Assimilation (Experiment) and Accomodation (Mastery) stages.  He said a first step, Observation (or Rollercoaster behavior) would fit the model as well.

REMA is built from playtest observation and discussion, similar to Piaget’s work, with a goal of starting from the player’s psychological point of view rather then a game design view, so this comparison is interesting.  Any other psychologists who could add to the discussion?
