Behavioral Learning Theory Reflection Before learning about this theory I did not know about all these key words that are affiliated with this one theory. Behaviorism is a learning theory that only focuses on objectively visible behaviors and discounts any independent activities of the mind. Behavior theorists define learning as nothing more than the achievement of new behavior based on environmental conditions. This theory is more concerned with the response generated. Input is stimulus and output is response that produces behavioral changes. This theory was pioneered by Pavlov, Edward Lee and Skinner. They describe about the behaviorism and the points specifically for learning activities are stimulus and responses. There are two different types of conditioning, each compliant a different behavioral pattern which are Classic conditioning and behavioral or operant conditioning. Classic conditioning occurs when a natural reflex responds to a stimulus. We are naturally programmed so that a certain stimulus will produce a specific response. One of the more common examples of classical conditioning in the educational environment is in situations where students exhibit illogical fears and concerns like fear of failure, fear of public speaking and general school obsession. Behavioral or operant conditioning occurs when a response to a stimulus is reinforced. Basically, operant conditioning is a simple feedback system. If a reward or reinforcement follows the response to a stimulus, then the response becomes more likely in the future. Leading behaviorist B.F. Skinner used reinforcement techniques to teach pigeons to dance and bowl a ball in a mini-alley. This theory is fairly simple to understand because it relies only on observable behavior and describes several universal laws of behavior. Its positive and negative reinforcement techniques can be very effective. Behaviorism is often used by teachers who reward or punish student behaviors.
