In 1,000-1,250 words, compare a minimum of three different learning theories. Include the following in your discussion.

  1. Discuss how emotional influences or previous experiences impact learning.
  2. In a final paragraph of your paper, reflect on a situation in which you were highly motivated. Which theory do you feel was the most applicable to your situation/completion of the task at hand?

Use three to five scholarly resources to support your explanations.

retained during the process of learning. For knowledge and skills to be acquired and conserved
effectively, factors such as environmental influence, cognitive and emotions play significant roles in
learning. People learn in various ways. In this essay, I will support various learning theories such as
behaviorism, cognitive, social learning and constructive, whereby I will explore and consider how
they have contributed to knowledge and show how emotional experience or previous experience
from them have impacted my learning.

The Behavioral theory claims that learning occurs due to environmental experience (stimuli)
which leads to a particular response. They believe that children are born with a blank slate (tabula
rasa) and therefore they acquire knowledge through conditioning. Proponents associated with this
theory are John B Watson, Ivan Pavlov, BF Skinner, and E. L Thorndike. Focuses on changes that
are measurable for example increase, decrease, and maintenance. Under this theory, learning occurs
in two different ways that are learning through classical conditioning and operant conditioning.
