Behaviorism Definition Behaviorism can be defined as a developmental theory that measures observable behaviors produced by a learner’s response to stimuli. Responses to stimuli can be reinforced with positive or negative feedback to condition desired behaviors
To a behaviorist… Human learning is objective Experimental part of science There is no internal cognitive processing of information Every thing even animal and humans learn by positive and negative rewards
Ivan Pavlov Ivan became famous for his behavioral experiments with dogs, and won the Nobel Prize in physiology He used conditioning (positive and negative rewards) to salivate when he rang a bell. When he gave them food ( the stimulus) they began to salivate. He than rang a bell after. The dogs associated the bell with food. This process was referred to as Classical conditioning- refers to the natural reflex that occurs in response to stimulus
B.F. Skinner Skinner did experiments with pigeons and rewarded them when he saw them behaving in a good way Skinner eventually was able to teach the pigeons how to dance using this This type of conditioning is called operant conditioning- which describes learning that has been controlled and results in shaping behavior through positive reinforcement of stimulus
Albert Bandura Bandura invented the idea of social cognitive theory-focuses on those motivational factors and self-regulatory mechanisms that contribute to a person’s behavior Bandura believes that people acquire behavior through the observation of others and then using those observations to imitate them. This can be referred to as observational modeling.
What the teacher does under this theory (with and without technology)? The teacher can use this type of learning theory do contain behavior in a classroom by positive and negative rewards. This can contain a classroom well. A teacher can use technology as a positive reward for their students. Without technology, a teacher can use other things for rewards. In addition, the teacher can use the technology as a negative by not allowing the students to use whatever technology in class. They will miss out.
What the students do under the behaviorist theory? I believe that the students do well with the behaviorist theories. They understand if they do good things they will receive positive benefits. If they do bad things they will seek negative rewards. Technology can be a positive reward for students
What do I believe? I think I will use the behaviorist learning theory in my classroom. If my future students act well they receive positive benefits. This will want them to mimic positive behavior.
