Learning theories Applied to learning experiences

Review and reflect on the theories you explored this week (behaviorism, constructivism, and social learning). With these thoughts in mind, recall a learning experience from your own life, or one from someone you know well (e.g., a spouse, a sibling, or a child). Consider how this experience embodies aspects of the theories you studied: behaviorism’s classical conditioning, Piaget’s psycho-social development stages, Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, observational learning, etc.
Then, write an essay in which you analyze and describe how this learning experience demonstrates the principles of any of the learning theories presented this week. Be sure to reference this week’s required resources and provide a concise yet detailed explanation of how the learning theories apply to your learning situation.
