Transcript of Applied Developmental Theory Activity

Bandura’s Social Learning Theory states that people learn from one another, via observation, imitation, and modeling. The theory has often been called a bridge between behaviorist and cognitive learning theories because it encompasses attention, memory, and motivation. How does the Activities Support Development? Social Learning theory-Model Rehearsed and Coded Behavior:

Activity 1: Teacher plans a Spelling Bee in place of a midweek
Spelling Quiz

The winner of the Spelling Bee is given several privelages in the classroom for example (running errands
teacher helper etc.

The following week the instructor conducts the spelling bee again
and records the difference in the scores prior to the previous week

The instructor announces that there will not be a spelling bee the following week

The following week when the students returns too school the instructor informs the students
that there will be a surprise spelling bee Activity 2: The teacher chooses two or three popular students that dress with the new saggy jeans style or some other popular clothing trend

Offer them privately free homework passes or some other
incentive for wearing their pants up for a specified time period(but they have too keep it a secret

The instructor announces too the class how wonderful they look on a daily basis

Teacher observes how many students begin too change their dress code based on the two popular students The instructor can show each student the effects that their peers have on them thus making him or her aware of the observational theory

The instructor can push the idea of being a leader and not a follower

Bandura gave an example once of a teacher telling the students that what they will study next is not on a test

After being told this the students attention most likely would not be on what the instructor was saying because it would not be on the test and did not interest them

According to bandura, attention is influenced by the expectation of reinforcement the students will hopefully, learn to be prepared as in the of activity 1 the surprise Spelling Bee In applying Bandura’s Social Learning theory, Kearsley (1994c) suggests keeping the following principles in mind:

The highest level of observational learning is achieved by first organizing and rehearsing the modeled behavior symbolically and then enacting it overtly.

Coding modeled behavior into words, labels, or images results in better retention than simply observing.

Individuals are more likely to adopt a modeled behavior if it results in outcomes they value.

Individuals are more likely to adopt a modeled behavior if the model is similar to the observer and has admired status and the behavior has functional value. Social Learning Theory
Activities "Strategies consistent with social learning theories include mentoring, apprenticeship, on the job training, and internships" (Ross-Gordon 1998, 217).

Each involves learning in a social situation whereby novice learners model more experienced teachers, coworkers or classroom peers

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 Elementary School Age Albert Bandura Can u see that?

The baby was only 3 years old

Then start to smoke already
