Social Learning Theory Bandura Social Learning Theory

“Most human behavior is learned observationally through modeling: from observing others, one forms an idea of how new behaviors are performed, and on later occasions this coded information serves as a guide for action.” (Bandura). Social learning theory explains human behavior in terms of continuous reciprocal interaction between cognitive, behavioral, and environmental influences. Necessary conditions for effective modeling Attention — various factors increase or decrease the amount of attention paid. Retention — remembering what you paid attention to. Reproduction — reproducing the image. Motivation — having a good reason to imitate. Reciprocal Determinism Social learning theory has sometimes been called a bridge between behaviorist and cognitive learning theories because it encompasses attention, memory, and motivation.

Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory By Saul McLeod, updated 2016 Social learning theory, proposed by Albert Bandura, emphasizes the importance of observing, modelling, and imitating the behaviors, attitudes, and emotional reactions of others.

28542 Human development theory: Māori models of human development

Two well-known Māori models of hauora are Mason Durie's Te Whare Tapa Whā model and Rose Pere's Te Wheke model. Te Whare Tapa Whā Te Whare Tapa Whā is a model of health and wellbeing for Māori that was developed by Sir Mason Durie. It is a holistic model of health because it doesn't just look at a person's physical health. In this model, the house stands for our overall holistic health.

The four walls of Te Whare Tapa Whā are equally important. These are: Taha hinengaro – mental and emotional wellbeing.Taha tinana – physical wellbeing.Taha wairua – spiritual wellbeing.Taha whānau – social wellbeing. Here are some examples of what Te Whare Tapa Whā looks like in action. Māori health models – Te Wheke. Skip to main content Home > Our work > Populations > Māori health > Māori health models > Te Wheke Māori health Māori health models – Te Wheke Traditional Māori health acknowledges the link between the mind, the spirit, the human connection with whānau, and the physical world in a way that is seamless and uncontrived.

Māori health models – Te Wheke

Until the introduction of Western medicine there was no division between them. The concept of Te Wheke, the octopus, is to define family health. Māori health models – Te Whare Tapa Whā. With its strong foundations and four equal sides, the symbol of the wharenui illustrates the four dimensions of Māori well-being.

Should one of the four dimensions be missing or in some way damaged, a person, or a collective may become ‘unbalanced’ and subsequently unwell. For many Māori modern health services lack recognition of taha wairua (the spiritual dimension). In a traditional Māori approach, the inclusion of the wairua, the role of the whānau (family) and the balance of the hinengaro (mind) are as important as the physical manifestations of illness. Taha tinana (physical health) The capacity for physical growth and development. Good physical health is required for optimal development. Our physical ‘being’ supports our essence and shelters us from the external environment. Taha wairua (spiritual health) The capacity for faith and wider communication. Health is related to unseen and unspoken energies.

By Terry Heick Jackie Gerstein’s passionate thinking about learning is some of my favorite to read.

The Difference Between Pedagogy, Andragogy, And Heutagogy

She is rarely pulled down by trend or fad, but is unquestionably progressive and forward-thinking in her approaches to learning and thinking about learning. Further, we share a passion: self-directed learning. (As does the original summarizer/author of the thinking embedded in table above, Lindy McKeown Orwin.) I’m embarrassingly interested in any kind of learning at all–formal or informal, self-directed or teacher-centered, authentic or academic.

Gerstein’s presentation, “Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy of Mobile Learning” uses the concept of mobile learning as a spearhead into a broader discussion of how people learn–different approaches, different domains, and different technologies.

The Adult Learning Theory - Andragogy - of Malcolm Knowles

According to Malcolm Knowles, andragogy is the art and science of adult learning, thus andragogy refers to any form of adult learning. (Kearsley, 2010).
