Behaviorist learning theory (module 1.2)
This includes classical conditioning and operant conditioning.
The theory of classical conditioning was developed by Russian physiologist, Pavlov (1849-1936). A type in which there is association of two stimulus namely neutral stimulus and conditioned stimulus. It can be inferred from the given definition that the key element in classical conditioning is association. This explains that if two stimuli are repeatedly experienced together, they will be associated to each other.
The concept of classical conditioning was developed accidently. As a matter of fact Pavlov wanted to study the effect of salivation on digestion. He intends to see how much saliva a dog produce when a meat loaf is given.

Hinrichs states that observational learning is so common and so powerful.
Individuals that are observed are named models. In society children are surrounded by many powerful models, such as parents amongst the family, characters on children’s TV, friends within their peer group and teachers at the school. Theses models supply examples of behavior to observe and copy, e.g. masculine and feminine, pro and anti-social etc.
Children pay attention to some of these people (models) and encode their behavior. At a later time they may imitate (i.e. copy) the behavior they have observed. They may do this irrespective of whether the behavior is ‘gender appropriate’ or not but there are a number of processes that make it more likely that a child will produce same behavior that its society deems appropriate for its…show more content… Technology integration is accomplished when technology tools affirm the curricular goals and objectives, and assist the students to reach their goals without having to face to any hassle and hardship. Students are even more dynamically engaged in assignments and projects when technology integration is an effortless part of the teaching and learning process.
Technology desegregation in education needs students to dynamically use technology, not just have a look at the technology-based content invented and designed by their teachers. The objective of technology integration on the part of teachers is to apply the exercise of technology in an effortless fashion so that it empowers and further extends the curriculum objectives and employ students in purposeful learning.
The espousal of change is a significant prerequisite for technology integration. Technology is continuously evolving and changing. It is an ongoing sequential process. It requires continual learning. Change is not easy always. The first human reaction in response to change is resistance. Resistance brings on slow change, but change is unstoppable and
