Classical Conditioning

  1. 1. Classical Conditioning Kelli L.
  2. 2. Key person associated with classical conditioning • Ivan Pavlov • Pavlov lived from 1849-1936. • He formed an experiment to teach a dog to form a response to the ring of a bell. • Using classical conditioning, he taught the dog to salivate when it heard a bell ring.
  3. 3. Pavlov’s Experiment
  4. 4. Key points of the theory • Classical conditioning is the reflex that occurs in response to a stimulus. • Although it was discovered in an experiment with dogs, it can be applied to many animals, including humans. • It is a useful tool to teach people to respond a certain way. • Classical conditioning can be used to increase the amount of a behavior, but it can also be used to decrease behavior.
  5. 5. Using classical conditioning to teach in a classroom • Teachers are able to apply classical conditioning in the class without using technology by creating a positive classroom environment to help students overcome anxiety or fear. • Teachers can reward students with candy or a treat • Teachers can flash the lights to get the students to quiet down.
  6. 6. Students under this theory • Students taught by this theory will learn to respond a certain way to something the teacher does. • Examples: • Not talking when the lights are flashed • Receiving candy when answering a question correctly • Receiving detention when tardy to class
  7. 7. Using Classical Conditioning in My Classroom • It would be very useful to use this theory to teach my students. • Classical conditioning is a very easy, but effective tool to teach students. • Something as simple as flashing the classroom lights can make the classroom quieter, so students can pay attention and learn.
