  • Key People of the Theory
    B.F. Skinner
    Albert Bandura
  • Key Points of the Theory
    The behaviorism learning theory says that thinking does not have to take place for a person to learn.
    Classic conditioning: refers to the natural reflex that occurs in response to a stimulus.
    Ivan Pavlov
    i.e. Experiment with Pavlov’s dog
    and salivation.

  • Cont. of Key Points of the Theory
    Operant conditioning: refers to learning that is controlled and results in shaping behavior through reinforcement of stimulus response pattern.
    B.F. Skinner
    i.e. Experiment to teach pigeons to
    dance using this technique .
    Students need both positive and
    negative reinforcement depending
    on their actions.

  • Cont. of Key Points of the Theory
    Observational modeling: refers to a method of learning through observation of their environment.
    Self efficiency: refers to a personal observation about one’s perceived ability to feel, think, and motivate oneself to learn.
    Imagery: refers to a person’s ability to retain information through images in the mind.
    Albert Bandura
  • Classroom Implications
    What the teacher does under this theory (with and without technology)…
    Gain the students’ attention
    Offer rewards for good/desired behavior
    Stars, verbal approval, & student of the week, etc.
    Offer consequences for negative/undesired behavior
    Detention & parent phone calls, etc.
    What the students do under this theory (with and without technology)…
    Understand what is wanted of them
    Find motivation to attain the desired reward/outcome
  • My Own Teaching
    Although I do believe in the learning theory of behaviorism, I also feel that cognitivist and constructivism are valid theories as well.
    I feel that I would be able to incorporate many of the learning theories in one classroom.
    The learning/teaching method would have to go along with what I am teaching, I think that all of them are right at certain times and should be used at differently and appropriately.
