  • B. F. Skinner's Theory Of Teenage Driving

    experience reinforcement or punishment, but simply by thinking about potential consequences, they still have the ability to learn a specific behavior (Lester, 2016). Additionally, Bandura states that another part to the social learning theory includes observational learning. With this, the same concept of reinforcement and punishment, along with imitation is one of the ways in which behavior is learned. In the late 1900s, Bandura demonstrated this idea with the BoBo Doll Experiment. Twenty-four…

  • Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory Analysis

    The main concept of Albert Bandura’s social learning theory is that people learn behaviors by watching someone else. These behaviors may be ones that are new or behaviors that may change what they currently are doing. Bandura’s theory incorporates not only the behavior being observed but also the cognitive processes it takes to learn and assimilate the behavior that is being observed. This is accomplished by imitating the actions or behavior that is being observed. The influence of the…

Observational learning involves observing someone else’s behavior and learning from or mimicking the persons or models behavior in short, it is learning through modeling (Feldman, 2013).

  • Aquasol Experimental Design: Weaknesses

    A weakness in this experimental design is the manual dilution of the Aquasol concentrations. This is because, if a random error were to occur, and the diluted Aquasol concentration does not result in the desired concentration, the validity, reliability, and precision of the results is majorly decreased. Whereas if the Aquasol concentrations were already previously diluted in a lab by professionals, or were bought in the correct concentrations, the reliability, validity, and precision of the…

  • Personal Narrative: Okay, Listen

    “Okay, listen.” “Oh, little tiny baby Sam.” “Bongiorno!” “Are you safe?” “Oh, did you go to Farm Camp? You’ve never mentioned it.” These are just a few prominent examples of the little quips I’ve brainwashed my friends into saying. When I came to campus, I immediately entered into a group of people who I feel more connected to than pretty much anyone I’ve been acquainted with previously. So I guess it isn’t all that surprising we have picked up some of each other’s mannerisms and vocal…

  • Electrolyte Concentration Lab Report

    DISCUSSION: In this investigation, the effect of electrolyte concentration, depth of electrode immersion in electrolyte, and distance between electrodes in electrolyte, on the current flow through copper electrodes were tested. Table 1 and Graph 1 display the results when increasing electrolyte concentration. Evident in Graph 1, the results contained scatter, and consisted of an outlier in the sample in which the ratio of NaCl: deionised water was 10:30mL. The outlier and scatter may have been…

  • Two Theories Of Aggression Analysis

    There is a wide variety of different theories regarding aggression. However, the two theories which I tend to compare and evaluate are the evolutionary theory and the social learning theory. These theories tend to explain why an individual behaves in an aggressive or violent way. The evolutionary theory is derived from the biological factor in which it aims to focus on aggression as a natural selection, meaning aggression is naturally there within humans. On the other hand, the social learning…

  • Early Years Learning Framework: Summary And Analysis

    Planning for risky play for meeting outcomes in the Early Years Learning Framework When planning risky play for children, it is essential that educators include a range of natural elements in the outdoor environment, such as plants, sand, mud and water. Through daily interactions with these elements, children’s understandings of the world, where they live, can be broadened. Therefore, they connect with their land and then develop the sense of belonging to the country. Besides, children can…
