For me, learning must be a personal and innate. It is NOT by force or intimidation from others that would make me change my preconceived ideas, concepts or even my behavior.
Put a tab on this and re check if you still maintain this assertion by the end of the course. Watch out for theoretical justifications to validate your stance/s. – Teacher Malou -May 19,2013 04:40 PM

Based on SOCIAL COGNITIVE THEORY of Bandura,
People learn new information and behaviours through OBSERVATION and MODELLING . To explain further, people observe the aftermath of other’s action and adapt their behaviours accordingly. While EXTERNAL environmental reinforcement acts as an influencial factor of learning, INTRINSIC reinforcement as a form of reward ( pride and satisfaction) works in parallel to develop learning cognitively
- Learning does NOT necessarily lead to change in Behaviour.
- Internalization the ultimate goal of SOCIAL learning, wherein an individual NOT ONLY “observes” BUT assimilates it and makes OBSERVED behaviour a part of himself– ADAPTS and INTEGRATES it into his system.
Based on SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVISM of Vygotsky,
- Through exposure to others people’s thoughts, one can assess and CONSTRUCT their own.
My Personal knowledge DEVELOPS in parallel with shared understanding through EXPERIENCES, SOCIAL INTERACTIONS, COLLABORATIONS AND SOCIO-CULTURAL ACTIVITIES.
