  1. Behaviorism in education often has a bad reputation. We associate it with Pavlov's dog.
  2. In the classroom, we use it more often than we think! I give out stickers when students choose to use an SAT word correctly in a sentence.... mostly I give them a sticker when they're willing to play!
  3. Use a Learning Theory: Behaviorism
  4. Cognitivism has a lot of parts. The goal is to use individualized strategies to get information from short-term memory into long-term memory.
  5. Most often, we use conginitivism in the academic classes at our school. Teachers help students build on prior knowledge, chunk information into "digestable" pieces with no more than 9 bits, and use outlines and individualized learning strategies.
  6. Use a Learning Theory: Cognitivism
  7. Constructivism enables students to build their own knowledge through simulated and real-life experiences.
  8. Our trade areas naturally use constructivism with hands-on experiences when they are on the job.
  9. Use a Learning Theory: Constructivism
  10. Connectivism is using our connections, technological and social, to make sense of what we are learning.
  11. Are you a Behaviorist, a Cognitivist, a Constructivist, or a Connectivist? or a little bit of everything, depending on the situation?
  12. I was VERY entertained by the Blue Sofa Media descriptions of the learning theories... and the silly videos.
