Schemas Assimalation and Accomadation

I found this video explaining the difficult concepts of schemas, assimilation, and accommodation. With this, the author describes the differences between the three and how they connect to one another. The difference between assimilation and accommodation is that when you assimilate something, you add more to that original schema so that different things can fit into it(such as the fouton example). Accomodation is when you completely alter or cross out the schema you original had to make an entire new one. This connects to the course in whole because it was a lesson that was taught in class as well. I hope this clarifies!
