It is very significant and important for us to gauge or determine how much, us, students have learned after a psychology class. It enables us to gain knowledge that can be applied in the future, giving us more opportunities in succeeding our goals. This learning had an impact in my life, making me more of a responsible one.
Comparing my knowledge before and after, my knowledge before is that I have very limited information in my mind like I don't have enough information in order to cope up ...view middle of the document...
" What it means is that most people learned through observations and by observing others idea we use this information on how we are going to cope with new behaviors making it a guide for our future actions.
Albert Bandura is well regarded for his Social Learning Theory. Social learning theory posits that learning is a cognitive process that takes place in a social context and can occur purely through observation or direct instruction, even in the absence of motor reproduction or direct reinforcement. In addition to the observation of behavior, learning also occurs through the observation of rewards and punishments, a process known as vicarious reinforcement. The theory expands on traditional behavioral theories, in which behavior is governed solely by reinforcements, by placing emphasis on the important roles of various internal processes in the learning individual.
It means that, Social learning theory combines cognitive learning theory which posits that learning is influenced by psychological factors and behavioral learning theory which assumes that learning is based on responses to environmental stimuli. Albert Bandura integrated these two theories and came up with four requirements for learning: observation, retention, reproduction, and motivation. This integrative approach to learning was called social learning theory.
The most common and pervasive examples of social learning situations are television commercials. Commercials suggest that drinking a certain beverage or using a particular hair shampoo will make us popular and win the admiration of attractive people. Depending upon the component processes involved such as attention or motivation, we may model the behavior shown in the commercial and buy the product being advertised. Another example, if you see another student rewarded with extra credit for being to class on time, you might start to show up a few minutes early each day.
And as an ECET student, and as a from the word...
