WHAT IS BEHAVIORISM? Behaviorism is a theory that measures and observes the behaviors of a learner after being introduced to a stimuli. According to behaviorism, knowing is giving the correct response when exposed to a particular stimulus.
WHAT IS BEHAVIORISM?• In this theory the learner is not so much concern with how or why they got the answer but more so if it correct or not.• Educational effects of behaviorism are key in developing basic skills.
HOW IS BEHAVIORISM ENFORCED?• Negative or positive feedback can be given to the learner based on their response to the stimuli.• The approach of using positive and negative reinforcements to elicit desired behaviors of students is also useful in establishing and maintaining classroom management.
HOW IS BEHAVIORISM ENFORCED?• Reward with compliments and/or treats when desired behavior is shown.• Give constructive criticism with behavior is not desired.
HOW DO LEARNERS LEARN THRU BEHAVIORISM?• The learner uses low level processing skills to understand material and the material is often isolated from real-world contexts or situations.• Very little responsibility is given to the learner concerning their own education.
BEHAVIORISM IN THE CLASSROOM.• classroom management• drill and practice• rote memorization
BEHAVIORISM IN THE CLASSROOM• Can be used with or without technology.• Be able to give detailed feed back so that students are aware of what they are doing correct or what mistakes they are making.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BEHAVIORISM?• Ivan Pavlov- Known for his behavioral experiment with dogs and won the Nobel Prize in Physiology in 1904.• B.F. Skinner- Conducted a theory he called Operant Conditioning with pigeons where he reared them for desired behavior.• Albert Bandura – Know for his ideas on Social Learning that he renamed Social Cognitive Theory.
PERSONAL VIEWS OF BEHAVIORISM.I think that Behaviorism is a great way to train students how to learn and/or study.Students whom don’t know the correct way to retain information will benefit fromthis theory because it will teach them the correct way to learn thru practice andrepetition, the student will learn thru behavior which is kind of like muscle memoryfor the brain.
PERSONAL VIEWS OF BEHAVIORISM.In order to incorporate Behaviorism in my classroom I would:• I would allow students to gain extra points on quizzes and tests by allowing to explain why the choose the answer they did, what is the correct answer, and why did they choose the new answer. • This will encourage to study before the test so they won’t have to do twice the work after the text.
PERSONAL VIEWS OF BEHAVIORISM.• I will always have the students do a brain teaser or bell ringer at the beginning of class. • This will discourage students from coming in to class and putting their heads down and/or getting distracted by conversation with each other.
PERSONAL VIEWS OF BEHAVIORISM.• Reward my students not just for good grades but also for good behavior. • This will help students understand that their behavior can affect not only their grade but how the progress in the real world.
