Adult Learning - ... They also often attend school only part time, as opposed to the traditional full time status (Tews, 2013). The requirements for distance-based courses are no less than that of any other quality educational program (Tomei, 2010). The successful student views the online environment as a more convenient way to take delivery of their education – not an easier way (Tomei, 2010). Online is not an easier modality for learning course content (Tomei, 2013). On the contrary, for both the teacher and the student, distance education demands more time and energy than the more traditional classroom process (Tomei, 2013)....   [tags: education, online, success] 1305 words

The Process of Learning - Learning Learning is more than a person sitting at a desk and studying off a book. Everything that we do is a result of what we have learned. We respond to things that happen to us, we act and experience consequences from our behavior, and we observe what others say and do. Psychologists explain our many experiences with basic learning processes. “Learning is a relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs through experience (Santrock, p.146).” By learning how to use a computer you will change from being someone who could not operate a computer to being one who can....   [tags: Psychology Psychological Learn Essays]

Social Learning Theory - Akers and Sellers (2013) has stated that social learning theory is an expanded theory of differential association processes and improves it with differential reinforcement and other principles of the behavior theory. They added classical conditioning (the sharpening of involuntary reflex behavior); discriminative stimuli (internal stimuli that lead to signals for behavior); schedules of reinforcement (rewards and punishment ratio following behavioral feedback); and other theories of behavior (Akers & Sellers, 2013)....   [tags: differential association processes]

It occurs in the highly developed vertebrate brain ,mainly in the diencephalic structure (1). 2) Implicit memory is the non conscious learning of motor skills and other tasks.

Learning to Breathe - Learning to Breathe Up until a few years ago, I used to think it was silly when I would complain to someone about something trivial and they would say to me, “At least you have your health”--as if that were supposed to be some kind of consolation. I guess I thought I’d always be healthy and besides, at eighteen years old, you don’t really consider or plan around it when looking at your future. There’s school, love life, social life, and work—no room for bad health, really. I had always just considered my health to be somewhere ticking along in the background, until I reached the magical age of forty, when it would totally fail and I would start to experience all those awful thi...   [tags: Personal Narrative Breathing Medical Papers] 2432 words

Learning and Conditioning - I think learning and conditioning play the most important role for human behavior and mental processes. I believe that most of us would think we do things rather out of habit and even if we do things that are out of the ordinary, and we give them a great deal of thought and consideration, what we are really doing is running old, automatic programs. For example, at the time of this writing the virus checker is running automatically on my computer.

The Relation Between Learning and Wisdom - The Relation Between Learning and Wisdom "But aren't love of learning and love of wisdom the same?" Socrates asks Glaucon in Book II of Plato's Republic. "Yes, the same," Glaucon answers. And the dialogue passes on to the next point. Today, outside utopia one might question whether these two are the same, since we so often see the one pursued in the absence of the other. In an essay of no more than 750 words, take up the problem of the relation between learning and wisdom.
