I’m quite fascinated by the Behaviorism Theory of Learning and I want to share it with you. This view of learning according to according to the flow behavior, not the other is a change in behavior as a result of the interaction between stimulus and response.
Or in other words, learning is the change experienced by students in terms of its ability to behave in new ways as a result of interaction between stimulus and response. The experts are a lot of work in this genre include: Thorndike (1911), Watson (1963), Hull (1943), and Skinner (1968).
1. Thorndike According to Thorndike (1911), co-founder of the flow behavior, learning is a process of interaction between the stimulus (which may be thought, feeling, or movement) and response (which also can include thoughts, feelings, or movement).
Clearly, according to Thorndike, changes in behavior may be intangible something concrete (observable), or that nonkonkret (not observable). Although Thorndike did not explain how to measure a variety of behaviors that non concrete (measurement is one thing that became an obsession of all adherents of the flow behavior), but Thorndike’s theory has much to inspire the other experts who come afterwards.
Thorndike theory referred to as “flow connectionist” (connectionism). Experimental procedure was to make in order to escape the cage of each animal to the place of food. In this case if a caged animal, then these animals often perform a variety of behavior, such as biting, rubbing his body to the sides of the box, and sooner or later the animal was tripped on the bar so that the box open and the animal will escape into the food.
