Learning by Watching: Social Cognitive Theory and Vicarious Learning

Origin Learning

Rather, we have stated this example to prove a point: that observation is an intrinsic human technique to learn unfamiliar tasks or behaviors – something that has been theorized by the psychologist Albert Bandura as what he called the ‘Social Cognitive Theory’.

Cognitive Business

Clark Quinn

There are applications of cognitive science (including neuroscience, cognitive psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, etc) to more areas of business than just L&D. I was recently reading how marketing has leveraged understanding of behavior change at a deep level. The post Cognitive Business appeared first on Learnlets. One of my mantras is that organizations need to align better with how we think, work, and learn.

The Cognitive Science Behind Learning

There are levels of analysis; neural is one, but the next level up is the cognitive level. That’s where most of the important implications come from, as well as the social level above the cognitive. The Cognitive Umbrella.

Make Corporate Training Memorable With Cognitive Load Theory


Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) is an instructional design theory that uses the science of how the human brain processes information to inform the design of learning materials so they are easy to comprehend and remember.

Situated Cognition In eLearning: What eLearning Professionals Should Know


In this article, I’ll shed light on the situated cognition theory, from its core principles to tips that will help you use it in your next eLearning course. Situated cognition is based on the idea that learning is most effective when it is in context.

In Intuition vs. Data-Drive Decision-Making he addresses the question about when you should follow intuition and when you should base your decisions on concrete evidence, and about the kind of cognitive biases ( confirmation bias and the fallacy of centrality ) that can cause intuition to be wrong.

Game-based meta-cognitive coaching

Clark Quinn

What naturally occurred to me was that you could put the same sort of meta-cognitive skill tutoring in a game environment, as you have to digitally create all the elements you’d need to track anyways for the game reasons, and it could be a layer on top. In a well-defined arena like a designed game environment, we can know the goals and possible actions, and start looking for patterns of behavior.

Cognitive Tunnelling: How to Achieve Focus Through Stories

Cognitive Tunneling When things are automated, our brains don’t have to monitor our environment. David Strayer , a cognitive psychologist at the University of Utah, likens this scenario to the dimming of a spotlight representative of the brain’s attention span.

At Kairos Labs they partner with 100+ behavioral scientists. In Switch – Behavioral Economics – motivation and willpower is like riding the elephant. You have to think about where someone is on that wave when you introduce training or behavior change. Habit = unconscious behaviors. How does your brain form unconscious behaviors? It won’t create a behavior change. Tracking time is a second cognitive process.
