An individual models his or her own behavior on the behaviors of others. This is based on observational learning that requires attention, retention, production, and motivation. Attention is to selectively observe the actions of a model. Attention is influenced by characteristics of the modeled behavior (e.g., complexity), the model (e.g., attractiveness similarity), and the observer (e.g., cognitive capabilities). Retention then stores observed behaviors in memory, to reproduce later.
The SMF insinuates that: qualitative characteristics of an experience - such as emotional details, the embeddedness of the experience, a set of flexible criteria and ones own social beliefs can distort memory. Some of these processes are rapid and non-deliberate, and relate directly to heuristic judgements such as the match-to-average heuristic. Others are deliberate and more slowly processed systematic judgements. The cognitive processes that are involved in evaluating memories take place in the pre-frontal cortices; heuristic judgments are thought to occur in the right PFC, whilst systematic judgments occur in left PFC (Mitchell, Johnson, Raye & Greene,
Abstract The attentional boost effect is novel because its findings were contradictory to previous studies that found divided attention while encoding impairs one’s memory. This effect has been displayed in tests of item memory; however it has not yet been determined whether it affects contextual memory in a similar fashion. This study used four experiments to examine in further depth how the attentional boost affects contextual memory. In this review we will only be discussing experiment one, which examined contextual memory of intra-modal detail using font and color difference in study words. The other experiments tested contextual memory in a cross modal pattern using visual or auditory reception of the word items and contextual memory
Any change in their behaviour was recorded at the opening of the lesson, during the starter activity and then throughout the lesson in relation to classroom and behaviour management. According to Kawulich (2005) observation allows for the investigation of the people under study in their natural setting to be observed. Writing a diary allows for critical reflection, to make sense of the incident and draw conclusions from an educational setting (Tang, 2000). Gibbs model provided a framework to critically engage with the enquiry, making a connection between observations, experiences and emotions. Reflective diary was selected for many reasons and which Salisbury (1994) points out; purpose of personal development, to record experiences, to support planning and progress in research.
A strength of this study could be the selection of stories and schema stimuli within these stories. This could, in contrast, be a limitation to the reliability in that to recall a memory, the brain is dependent on the stimulus of a specific schema, and if not given the stimulus, one would only be able to recall some aspects of a memory and not others. However, a limitation could be the non-variance of participants, leading to the recall of details from both perspectives, which could be seen as a strength in the
In the article, “Congratulations, College Graduate. Now Tell Us: What Did You Learn?” by Jeff Selingo, he explains his viewpoint about college graduates not learning as much as they should be during college. Selingo states that there is no accurate way to measure how much students actually learn in college. The Collegiate Learning Assessment, known as the CLA, is used as a tool to measure colleges curriculum and teaching. On average, most students take the test three times in their college careers.
Moreover, “a behavioural syndrome results showing not only semantic-memory impairment but also particular difficulty remembering past events as personal happenings” (Tulving, 1989). Lastly, in Endel Tulving’s conclusion to his article he states “traditionally held views about the unity of memory are no longer tenable. A more appropriate view seems to be that of multiple memory systems. Remembering one’s past is a different, perhaps more advanced, achievement of the brain than simply knowing about it” (Tulving,

Including facts like how the analysis conducted a nonexperimental study in which undergraduate students taking psychology classes who had a recent onset major depressive episode were paid or received course credit for their research participation.

The cognitive theory focuses on how people learn from the processing of information. It discusses the concept such as memory, problem-solving as well as decision-making. Like behaviourists, they observed actions empirically to make interpretations about the internal mental progression (Yilmaz, 2011). According to Kuljis & Lui (2005) and Taylor et al. (2000), focus on arguments on how student learn large volumes of meaningful information by exposing them to a verbal teaching method.
They are called, Long term memory and Short term memory/working memory. With Long term memory, you are able to remember things from your past and past events as well as key terms that you may have learned in the past. An example of this in my life would be, remembering knowledge that I first learned in school and still being able to remember it, such as my multiplication table. The second one, Short term memory/working memory would be used when you are only remembering some information and using it for a short time frame. Working memory would be when you are using both short term and long term to do sudden actions.
