Social Learning Theory

  1. 1. Social Learning Theory By: Khamisha
  2. 2. Social Learning Theory The Social Learning Theory states that people learn from one another via observation, imitation and modeling. It is often referred to as a bridge behaviorist and cognitive learning theories because it encompasses attention, memory and motivation.
  3. 3. Albert Bandura  The Social Learning Theory was proposed by Albert Bandura.  Bandura believed that direct reinforcement could not account for all types of learning.  His theory added a social element, arguing that people can learn new information and behaviors by watching other people which is known as observational learning (or modeling).
  4. 4. Necessary conditions for effective modeling: Attention — various factors increase or decrease the amount of attention paid. Retention — remembering what you paid attention to. Reproduction — reproducing the image. Motivation — having a good reason to imitate.
  5. 5. There are 3 core concepts of the Social Learning Theory: People can learn through observation. Internal mental state is essential in the learning process. Learning does not necessarily lead to change in behavior.
  6. 6. What do teacher do under this theory ? To promote effective modeling a teacher must make sure that the four essential conditions exist; attention, retention , motor reproduction, and motivation. Teachers must model appropriate behaviors and take care that they do not model inappropriate behaviors. Teachers should expose students to a variety of other models. This technique is especially important to break down traditional stereotypes. Teachers should help students set realistic expectations for their academic accomplishments.
  7. 7. What do students do under this theory? Students often learn a great deal simply by observing other people. Students must believe that they are capable of accomplishing school tasks. Students should closely observe appropriate behaviors and learn from them.
  8. 8. I believe this theory will work wellin my classroom. I support leading by example and as educator I feel it is important to model appropriate behaviors for the students to observe and imitate.
