After you have read about the theories of learning, reflect on how you learned as a child. What methods did your parents use to teach you how to act? Was it through classical conditioning? What about operant conditioning and social learning theory? Which theory had the biggest impact? Why? Give an example and state how it has impacted the person you are today.

(Given a task such as training a new employee in a specific job skill, encouraging more socially appropriate behaviors, or encouraging recall of previously learned information, apply the principles of learning to develop a plan for increasing desired behaviors and reducing or eliminating undesirable behaviors or for comprehending material)

(Given an individual who either struggles academically or maintains high academic achievement levels, assess the potential effectiveness of IQ tests or “culture fair” intelligence tests for indicating the reasons for the person’s performance)

In the first graded thread we are going to converse and have many insightful discussions on Classical Conditioning, Operant Conditioning, Cognitive Learning and Social Learning/Observational Learning.

What about operant conditioning? Which theory had the biggest impact? Why?; Give an example(s) and state how it has impacted the person you are today .

All – let’s continue this great momentum we have going in the course. The Week 1 and 2 threaded discussions have been excellent and I’m looking forward to an even better Week 3.

Infants can watch their parents to learn how to walk.  Also a few other things that infants can learn from watching their parents is talking, fussing, and how to react when others are holding them.  By the child crying or fussing they learn that the parent will come over and pay attention to them.  The infant can also learn hot to react when others are holding them by for example if the parents seem a bit hesitant in handing over their child then it maybe a possibility that they child will then cry…

Memory and Intelligence – 45 Pages 

We all seem to want a good memory (What are my coworkers names? Where did I leave my computer? What day was I supposed to submit that proposal to my boss?). These might be typical memory issues. After reading about memory and intelligence, what is your most valuable tip for the class in improving your ability to remember things?

This week our Terminal Course Objectives are 7 and 8. In this second graded threaded discussion area we will converse on the topics of (1) Memory; (2) Forgetting; (3) Biological Bases of Memory; (4) Memory Distortions; and (5) Intelligence.

(Given a task such as training a new employee in a specific job skill, encouraging more socially appropriate behaviors, or encouraging recall of previously learned information, apply the principles of learning to develop a plan for increasing desired behaviors and reducing or eliminating undesirable behaviors or for comprehending material)

(Given an individual who either struggles academically or maintains high academic achievement levels, assess the potential effectiveness of IQ tests or “culture fair” intelligence tests for indicating the reasons for the person’s performance)

Let’s begin by responding to the following (also shown above):

We all seem to want a good memory. “What are my co-workers names? Where did I leave my computer? What day was I supposed to submit that proposal to my boss?” – might be typical memory issues.
(1) After reading about memory, what is your most valuable tip for the class on improving your ability to remember things?
(2) Please use concrete examples to help support your logic.

“Repetition” is central to Attention and Levels of Processing. Repetition “enriches encoding” because it increases attention and depth of processing.

Many of us forget where we put the car keys because we are typically in such a rush (and not paying attention) that “where we put the car keys” does not get encoded properly. Enriching the encoding process will improve memory. Without encoding there is no retrieval/memory.   Many students “study” their course material by reading over the content one time – this will result in very little encoding and depth of processing will be very shallow. This is why many students forget the course material when they become anxious in a testing environment. The “studied” material is fleeting because it has not entered Long Term Memory. In other words, “memory stores” (network of neurons that represent the learned material) have not been created…
