How can we use Pavlov’s conditioning theory in the classroom teaching?

November 24th, 2009 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Pavlov’s theory is known as conditioning theory. According to this theory, the learner learns to transfer a response from one stimulus to purely neutral stimulus.

Four elements of this theory

This theory is useful in classroom teaching:

1.      Through conditioning good habits can be formed.

E.g. ‘Star’ ¤ against the Name, if previous day’s lesson revised and answered correctly.

2.       Through conditioning emotion, a teacher can make teaching-learning effective.                                                  E.g. Frowning or Smiling Face

3.     Teacher can bring interest for the school subjects by some conditioning.                                                   E.g. Displaying of Subject charts.

4.    It develops positive attitude.

5.      Conditioning enables the students to change his outlook.

6.      Develop Sympathy.                   E.g. Through pictures and stories of moral values

7.      Uproot the false belief.                                                                                                                                E.g. Stories of Saints proving the misconceptions.

8.      Fear, love or hatred created towards an object or events.

9.      Most of the learning is associated with the process of conditioning from the beginning.                           E.g. “Stand-erect” command or National flag display before a Prayer or Anthem.

10.   Parents at home and teachers at school show affection, loving attitude, and sympathetic treatment produce a desirable impact on children through the process of conditioning.

    Can I just say what a comfort to find a person that genuinely understands what they are talking about on the net.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people should look at this and understand this side of
    the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular since you definitely have the gift.
