Module 13: Learning Theories

  1. 1. By: Tracey Jones
  2. 2. What is Behaviorism? The prediction and control of human behavior in which introspection and/or independent thinking play no essential part of its teaching
  3. 3. Implications of BehavioralTheory Behavioral teaching and learning tends to focus on skills that will be used later Behavioral learning does not, however, generally ask you to actually put the skills or knowledge you learn into use in a "real" or "authentic" situation That usually comes later in a career
  4. 4. Teaching with the BehavioralTheory Teaching methods include, tutorials, drill and practice, behavioral simulation, and programmed instructions. All of these teaching strategies are called Integrated Learning System
  5. 5. As a Student They do not see the relevance of luck when it comes to school or learning Knowing or having the information come naturally makes sense to the student in the behavioral theory They like to be rewarded for their achievements
  6. 6. Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) Famous for his behaviorism experiments with dogs He taught dogs to salivate when he rand a bell, when he gave them food he got them to salivate This was known as Classic Conditioning
  7. 7. B.F. Skinner (1904-1990)  He did experiments with pigeons and rewarded them when he saw them behaving in a desired manner.  Eventually taught the pigeons to dance by rewarding them when they did something right  This was know as Operant conditioning
  8. 8. Albert Bandura (1925- ) Famous for his ideas on social learning, he renamed Social Cognitive Theory He focused on the motivational factors He believes that people acquire behaviors through observation of others and using those observations to imitate what they have observed
  9. 9. My Opinion on the BehavioralTheory I do find this theory very effective for most students. Personally I think the idea of drilling and practicing the information is great for knowing the context. I would use this in the classroom but I would also use some other methods for different students, not everyone learns the same.
