Cognitive Theories

Question 1

  • Compare and contrast the psychological “camps” of Behaviorism and Cognitivism based on scholarly materials including the required resources for this week.
  • Analyze how each learning theory applies to real-life situations, and provide two examples for each.
    • Behaviorism example – Every time the chickens get on the porch, they are sprayed with water. After time, the chickens learn not to be on the porch.
  • Demonstrate your further understanding of these theoretical perspectives by including implications to learning posed by each theory.
  • Based on the evidence presented in this week’s resources, what are the major strengths and weaknesses of each theory in relation to how we learn? In your comparison, do you see where one type of training might work better than the other based on situations (e.g., differing age groups, differing learning abilities, or differing skill level/rigor)?
  • Apply basic research methods to your comparison by providing empirically based research findings or other reliable examples to support your statements and cite all your references in APA style

Question 2

Conduct further research on the topic of theories of child development. In 2-3 pages compare and contrast the learning and cognitive theories of Freud, Erickson, Piaget, and Vygotsky. Be sure to thoroughly explain each of the theories and give examples.
