On your own, do research into cognitive learning theories. Find a learning theory and theorist to use for this discussion.

This discussion has three parts:

  1. Establish the theory you found as belonging in the cognitivist realm. What are some of the major theoretical assumptions of this cognitive or information-processing theory that sets it apart from other theories of learning? What does this theory explain well about learning, and what does it not explain well?
  2. Review the presentation Learning Theories: Case Studies. Choose one case study to use for this discussion. Using the theory you found, identify and describe a possible behavior that the individual could have previously learned. What kind of intervention would work for this person if we are using this theoretical framework?
  3. Share ways in which you have seen this theory in action in your own life.
