Behaviorism Ivan Pavlov My Classroom What I think
Is the prediction and control of human behavior in which introspection and/or independent thinking play no essential part of its teaching methods. To the behaviorist, human learning is purely an objective and experimental branch of natural science.
You can use both man and animal when it comes to behavior because we both learn threw positive and negative rewards. Modernism is behaviorism came into vogue during a period of time that coincided with the industrial revolution.
Ivan Pavlov became famous for his behaviorism on dogs. He used conditioning to teach dogs to salivate when he rang a bell. When he provided the food and he achieved his desire salivation, he rang a bell.
After a while when the dog would hear the bell he would salivate even if their was no food around. This is called classic conditioning which refers to the natural reflex that occurs in response to a stimulus.
Under this theory as a teacher I am going to teach my students that when I put two fingers in the air that means that my students will have to sit down and be quiet. At first when they listen I will give them an extra 5 minutes at the end of the day to talk to one another. After a while I stop doing this and just finish up my lesson for the day before they go home.
What my students will do under this theory is that every time they see me with two fingers up in the air they will sit down and be quiet. After a while the kids will know that they have to be quiet and not be rewarded for it. It is just something that they have to do no matter what.
As a future teacher I think it would be good to use Ivan Pavlov theory on behaviorism because like he said humans like positive and negative rewards. It would work well in the classroom with the students especially because of the reward that they would receive.
I think all three of the theorist for behaviorism is good I think that Pavlov’s theory would come in handy a lot more then the others when being a teacher and having the students learn about positive and negative rewards.
