Online Collaborative Learning theory (Harasim 2012), is a more recent constructivist theory which focuses on the use of technology “to increase and improve communication between teacher and learners” (Bates, 2015). Dale Schunk is a professor in the Department of Teacher Education and Higher Education, School of Education, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The next four chapters cover the key topics of development and learning, neuroscience of learning, content-area learning, and motivation. Continue reading to learn more about Bandura’s Social Learning Theory (SLT) and its continuing impact on contemporary approaches to education.Six chapters cover the major theories of learning -- behaviorism, social cognitive theory, information processing theory, cognitive learning processes, and constructivism. For example, pedagogy involves the teacher as a central leader of classroom activities, whereas andragogy leans more heavily toward self-direction and student-led learning. Schunk concludes these four chapters with a Summary of Learning Issues, addressing the following six questions from the theoretical perspectives of each chapter. Does the theory have direct practical implications for teaching and learning [in the particular context in which you are working]?

The next five chapters discuss cognitive theories and processes of social cognitive theory, cognitive information processing theory, cognitive learning processes, constructivist theory, and cognition and instruction.

Learning theories are critical because they “help us to understand both how knowledge is created and how people learn” Harasim (2017).By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. These theories inevitably involve enactive learning (learning by doing), and correlate behavior to environmental influences.

I have included Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) as a distinct theory even though it is a cognitivist theory. Journaling is frequently suggested as a helpful classroom exercise that uses the principles of Cognitivism. I will be using these nine questions to evaluate each of the nine learning theories which I have selected for this series of blog posts.The text is intended for graduate students in schools of education or related disciplines, as well as for advanced undergraduates interested in education. So how can learning theories be applied to help teachers do their jobs more effectively so that students can achieve better outcomes?
