Lianna - Learning Theory

  1. 1. Learning TheoriesBehaviorism <br />Lianna Cabrera<br />
  2. 2. Key People of the Theory <br />B.F. Skinner<br />Ivan <br />Pavlov <br />Albert Bandura <br />
  3. 3. Key Points of the Theory <br />The behaviorism learning theory says that thinking does not have to take place for a person to learn.<br />Classic conditioning: refers to the natural reflex that occurs in response to a stimulus. <br />Ivan Pavlov<br />i.e. Experiment with Pavlov’s dog <br />and salivation.<br />
  4. 4. Cont. of Key Points of the Theory<br />Operant conditioning: refers to learning that is controlled and results in shaping behavior through reinforcement of stimulus response pattern. <br />B.F. Skinner <br />i.e. Experiment to teach pigeons to <br />dance using this technique .<br />Students need both positive and <br />negative reinforcement depending <br />on their actions.<br />
  5. 5. Cont. of Key Points of the Theory<br />Observational modeling: refers to a method of learning through observation of their environment.<br />Self efficiency: refers to a personal observation about one’s perceived ability to feel, think, and motivate oneself to learn. <br />Imagery: refers to a person’s ability to retain information through images in the mind.<br />Albert Bandura <br />
  6. 6. Classroom Implications <br />What the teacher does under this theory (with and without technology)…<br />Gain the students’ attention<br />Offer rewards for good/desired behavior <br />Stars, verbal approval, & student of the week, etc.<br />Offer consequences for negative/undesired behavior<br />Detention & parent phone calls, etc. <br />What the students do under this theory (with and without technology)… <br />Understand what is wanted of them <br />Find motivation to attain the desired reward/outcome <br />
  7. 7. My Own Teaching<br />Although I do believe in the learning theory of behaviorism, I also feel that cognitivist and constructivism are valid theories as well. <br />I feel that I would be able to incorporate many of the learning theories in one classroom.<br />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. <br />
