  1. 1. Behaviorism Matt Poffenberger
  2. 2. Behaviorism What is Behaviorism? Who are behaviorist theorists? Use in classroom Use in MY classroom
  3. 3. What is Behaviorism?  Learning theory that students are shaped by environment  Two types of associative learning: classical conditioning & operant conditioning  Classical conditioning evokes an automatic response to a stimulus  Operant conditioning is controlled learning with behavior shaped through stimulus- response patternsWhat is Behaviorism (cont.)
  4. 4. What is Behaviorism (cont.)  Theory states that psychological disorders can be treated by alternating behavior  Reinforcement should be seen as a motivator  Behaviorism can be learned from one another, without reward and reinforcement  Bandura’s social learning theory bridged behaviorism and cognitive theoriesMain Menu
  5. 5. Behaviorist Theorists  Ivan Pavlov  Classic conditioning  Trained dog to salivate with sound of bell when food with providing food  John B. Watson provided human applications  Trained an infant to be afraid of mice by associating rodent with a loud noise  B.F. Skinner  Operant conditioning  Reward for achievement in desiredBehaviorist Theorists (cont.) behavior
  6. 6. Behaviorist Theorists (cont.)  B.F. Skinner (cont.)  Positive behavior is reinforced with reward  Negative behavior is extinguished with consequences  Albert Bandura  Social learning theory  Behavior is observed from others, parents & teachers  Use in marketing- if it’s popular, people must buy itMain Menu
  7. 7. Classroom Use  Teachers reward students with extrinsic motivation (gestures, praise, point systems, and grades)  Students gain intrinsic motivation (self- satisfaction)  Computer software provides positive, visual feedback for correct response  Successful behaviorism allows for shift from extrinsic motivation to intrinsic motivationClassroom Use (cont.)
  8. 8. Classroom Use (cont.)  Teachers use consequences and discipline to correct student behavior  Computer software provides visually negative feedback to incorrect responses  Students are placed in time out or separated from group/friends when behavior is negative  This makes students attempt to correct behaviorMain Menu
  9. 9. Use in MY classroom  Seek to teach elementary school  Students can still be focused primarily on extrinsic motivation  Allow for ample amounts of positive reinforcement  Not just with academics, but with social characteristics and personal values (honesty, respect, responsibility)Use in MY Classroom (cont.)
  10. 10. Use in MY classroom (cont.)  Help achieve intrinsic motivation  Slowly lessen extrinsic rewards as school year goes along  Make sure that computer software used allows visual and auditory rewards  Focus on social learning theory  Strong belief that students will learn from teacher  i.e. If teacher cleans up mess, students will end up helping or clean up next time aroundMain Menu
