Skinner Thorndike Pavlov Behaviorism discuses behaviors that can be observed. Behaviorism focuses on a new behavioral pattern being repeated until it becomes automatic. Behaviorism is applied in different educational areas including systems approach, computer-assisted learning, development of objectives etc.

Psychologist and educators who established the early theory of cognitive learning.
Cognitive theory focuses on what is going on inside the mind. It is more concerned with cognition (the process of thinking and learning)—knowing, perceiving, problem-solving, decision-making, awareness, and related intellectual activities—than with stimulus and response. Learning is not just a change in behavior; it is a change in the way a learner thinks, understands, or feels.

David Kolb’sLearning StyleInventory:This theory impliesthere are four basicways to learn:through experience,reflection, abstractthinking, andexperimentation.
How you learn a new software? Active experimentation (DO) Learn by DOINGJust do, try and error focus on what’s work & what’s not
How you learn a new software? Reflective observation (WATCH) Learn by WATCHING Watch other friends demonstrated to you.
How you learn a new software? Abstract conceptualization (THINK) Learn by THINKING Read manual book to get the overall idea of what the software is all about
How you learn a new software? Concrete experience (FEEL) Learn by FEELING Read the “HELP” features to understand more and apply what you understand about it in your practice at that time
Constructivist believe that people actively construct ‘new knowledge’ as they interact with their environment. Social constructivism takes this to a new level where people collaborate share and learn from each other. Here people engage in knowledge building and sharing in small groups and in these groups they are constantly learning and evolving as new individual. Learning is an active, contextualized process of constructing knowledge rather than acquiring knowledge. Each person has a different interpretation and construction of knowledge process.
