How Computer Technology Will Transform Schools Of The Future

How Computer Technology Will Transform Schools Of The Future | Child Development | Scoop.it

Nearly every other industry has been changed beyond recognition by the invention of computers. Why not education, arguably one of the industries with the most to gain?


The answer is probably some combination of rank incompetence, institutional conservatism, and perverse incentives.

It's happening faster than a lot of people realize. Interested in seeing "results" in student learning growth between the "have and have not" countries. Hopefully the gap will close.

Social Cognitive Theory

Social Cognitive Theory | Child Development | Scoop.it

History and Orientation

In 1941 Miller and Dollard proposed the theory of social learning. In 1963 Bandura and Walters broadened the social learning theory with the principles of observational learning and vicarious reinforcement. Bandura provided his concept of self-efficacy in 1977, while he refuted the traditional learning theory for understanding learning.

The Social Cognitive Theory is relevant to health communication. First, the theory deals with cognitive, emotional aspects and aspects of behavior for understanding behavioral change. Second, the concepts of the SCT provide ways for new behavioral research in health education. Finally, ideas for other theoretical areas such as psychology are welcome to provide new insights and understanding.

Core Assumptions and Statements

The social cognitive theory explains how people acquire and maintain certain behavioral patterns, while also providing the basis for intervention strategies (Bandura, 1997). Evaluating behavioral change depends on the factors environment, people and behavior. SCT provides a framework for designing, implementing and evaluating programs.

Environment refers to the factors that can affect a person’s behavior. There are social and physical environments. Social environment include family members, friends and colleagues. Physical environment is the size of a room, the ambient temperature or the availability of certain foods. Environment and situation provide the framework for understanding behavior (Parraga, 1990). The situation refers to the cognitive or mental representations of the environment that may affect a person’s behavior. The situation is a person’s perception of the lace, time, physical features and activity (Glanz et al, 2002).

Hannah Weaver's curator insight, February 19, 2015 3:19 PM

Cognitive theory is about the emotional part of behavioral change. Environmental changes influence this theory. These environments include anything that influences people.  These environments model for the people. The model above show how all these relate to each other.
