Explain behaviorism cognitivism and constructivism

1. Explain Behaviorism, Cognitivism, Constructivism, and Humanism as applied to learning.
2. List and briefly (two or three sentences) describe seven perspectives/principles that you have learned about that you think would be important to teach managers so they can better understand their employees’ learning needs. These perspectives (principles) will be aligned with Behaviorism, Cognitivism, Constructivism, or Humanism.

Examples include:

From Behaviorism (associationistic models of learning)

  • Associative Learning , Classical Conditioning , Operant Conditioning, Conditioning, Extinction, and Ratio/Interval Schedules

From Cognition (the cognitive science of information processing representations of learning).

  • Schema Theory, dialectical processing, Problem-Based Learning, memory development, categorization, Elaboration theory (i.e. Bloom’s Taxonomy), spiral curriculum, memory development, and coding.

From Constructivism (conceptions of knowledge are derived from the process of constructing individual interpretations of one’s experiences)

  • Cognitive Constructivism, Social Constructivism, Situated Cognition, Social Learning Theory, Zone of Proximal Development, and Discovery Learning

From Humanism

  • Motivational theories of learning (i.e. Self-determination Theory, Maslow’s hierarchy of Needs), Emotional Intelligence development, Multiple Intelligences, Experiential Learning , and Steiner pedagogy or Waldorf education.

1. List and briefly explain seven strategies that could be applied in training based on the areas we have learned about the past weeks that you think would be the most successful based on thelearning group.

2. Explain how each strategy would help ensure learning is taking place.

Examples include:

From Behaviorism (associationistic models of learning)

  • Rewards and Punishments

From Cognition (the cognitive science of information processing representations of learning)

  • Practice, scaffolding of the content, repetition of curriculum/content, and application of Bloom’s Taxonomy

From Constructivism (conceptions of knowledge are derived from the process of constructing individual interpretations of one’s experiences)

  • Scaffolding by the instructor, interactive learning as seen in role-playing, discussions, and discovery activities

From Humanism

  • Meeting individual needs, activities that encourage belonging, autonomy, and competence, metacognitive activities, and alignment of learning to personal experiences.
