Here's what I've got.


Assimilation is a term referring to another part of the adaptation process.

It plays an important role in how we learn about the world around us.

Examples would be as follows.

A college student learning how to use a new computer program.

A chef learning a new cooking technique

A student learning a new language

On the other hand accommodation refers to a creation or modification.

Such as buying a new book, realizing it doesn't fit in your bookshelf, and buying a new bookshelf to store all your books in.

Downloading a program on your computer, not having enough space on your hard drive, and buying another hard drive.
