Rylee connell theory

  1. 1. THE THEORY OF BEHAVIORISMBy R ylee Connell
  2. 2. BEHAVIORISM THEORY MENU What is the ‘Behaviorism Theory’?  Definition  Main Points Primary Contributors to the Behaviorism Theory  Ivan Pavlov How it is observed in a classroom  Via teacher or via student Personal thoughts about this theory  Agree or disagree  Use in personal classroom
  3. 3. BEHAVIORISM THEORY  Operates on a stimulus response.  Caused by external stimuli. Explainable without explanation of mental state. Shaped by positive and negative reinforcement.
  4. 4. BEHAVIORISM THEORY (CONT’D)  Behavior can be seen and measured. They are acquired through conditioned stimuli, thus creating conditioned responses.
  5. 5. PRIMARY CONTRIBUTORSKey figures in the understanding of the Behaviorism Theory are: B.F. Skinner--1904-1990 Edward Thorndike--1874-1949 John B. Wilson--1878-1959 Ivan Pavlov--1849-1936Ivan Pavlov is considered to be one of the most influential contributors to the behaviorist theory…
  6. 6. IVAN PAVLOV—1849-1936 Behaviorist Discoverer •Made discovery that led to the beginnings of the behaviorist theory. •Experiment with unconditioned stimuli and dogs reactions.•Dogs salivated upon environmental cues related to food (such as a bell). •Observation made that certain cues cause certain behaviors.
  7. 7. HOW WOULD THIS THEORY BE OBSERVED IN A CLASSROOM Behaviorism theory is the idea that behaviors are cause by an external stimulus. Positive and negative reinforcements persuade or dissuade the outcomes. For example: If a teacher were to offer extra recess time for quiet, well-behaved students, the students would be more apt to follow directions to receive the beneficial outcome.
  8. 8. HOW THEORY WOULD BE OBSERVED IN A CLASSROOM (CONT’D) Technology and the behaviorism theory can be observed together as well. Technology, such as computers or iPads, could be used as rewards or a stimulus for students to follow directions, complete their work, and get good grades. Positive reinforcements=positive behaviors. Also observable is the behaviors students exhibit when using the computers or when provided the opportunity to use them.
  9. 9. PERSONAL THOUGHTS ON THEORY & USE IN FUTURE CLASSROOM I fully support the theory of behaviorism and believe it is conclusive. Almost every action we take or stimuli we come by results in a specific behavior, good or bad.  In a classroom, I believe this is one of the most easily observable theories.
  10. 10. PERSONAL THOUGHTS ON THEORY & USE IN FUTURE CLASSROOM (CONT’D) I can definitely see the behaviorism theory taking a place in my future classroom.  With the theory of behaviorism, the teacher can remain in control so long as the students behaviors can be conditioned. Being aware of the reactions students may exhibit because of possible situations would be very beneficial.
