    Learning Theory - Behaviorism Learning Theory - Behaviorism Presentation Transcript

    • By Kristen Burt
    •  Key Points Key People Teaching Through Behaviorism Learning Through Behaviorism My Classroom
    •  All behaviors are acquired through conditioning Conditioning occurs through interaction with the environment There are three types of learning:  Classical Conditioning  Operant Conditioning  Social Learning
    • Classic Conditioning  A neutral stimulus is paired with a response  You introduce the stimulus and then reinforce the reflex  Eventually, response comes naturally with the stimulus
    • Operant Conditioning  Learning through rewards and punishments  It begins with a stimulus (behavior) and is reinforced with a response (reward)  Eventually will stop bad response from occurring and will continue with the good
    • Social Learning  An observed behavior that is mimicked  Acquired behaviors by watching others
    • Interesting FactThese theories can all be used to train animals as well!!
    • Ivan Pavlov B. F. Skinner, Albert BanduraEdward Thorndike
    •  Created puzzle boxes to use for instrumental conditioning Well known for his work with animals Used experimental approach to understand learning
    • Without Technology  Ignores disruptive behavior to stop behavior  Use happy faces for good behavior  Assigns special privileges to those who behave  Gives stickers for turning in work on time  Separate student from others “time out”  Take recess away if they talk out in class
    • With Technology  Take away computer privileges  Play a computer game for early project submission  Type their next paper for writing neatly on the last one  Have them wipe down computers for not using them properly
    • Without Technology  Hand in assignments on time to avoid negative response  Behave so they can be the “Line Leader “or “Door Monitor”  Stop talking in class so they can sit with everyone  Behave so they can get a happy face  Hand in their project early for a reward
    • With Technology  Turn in assignment early to get extra time on computer  Use computers properly to keep computer privileges  Behave in class so they can play games on computer  Study so you can use the interactive white board
    •  This theory is important to learning behaviors I think positive reinforcement is best (rewards) Consistency would be a key factor
    •  I would use operant conditioning the most This would help me with ESOL students I can teach expectable behaviors
