Social Learning

This is a key concept of this theory is we learn through the observation of others.  A theory that evolved from behaviourism though now has many concepts from the cognitivist camp included.  It has been re-named by some to social-cognitive learning.

There are three variables to the social learning theory; environment, person and behaviour which influence each other.

Close relation to Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory and Lave’s Situated Learning Theory.

Advertisements and TV commercials are good examples of social learning.
