1. Student-Centered Learning

2. Teacher-Centered Learning

3. Difference

4. Similarity

5. Builds on Idea

6. Behaviourism

6.1. assumes that

6.1.1. Behaviour is Predictable and Measurable

6.1.1.1. through

6.1.1.1.1. Stimulus and Response- Mind as a "Black Box"

6.1.2. All behaviour is learned from the environment

6.1.2.1. through

6.1.2.1.1. Repetition and Reinforcement

6.2. is used for

6.2.1. Classroom Management

6.2.1.1. such as

6.2.1.1.1. Behaviour Modification- "Shaping"

6.2.1.2. can lead to

6.2.1.2.1. Competitive Environments

6.2.2. Motivation

6.2.2.1. such as

6.2.2.1.1. Gamification

6.2.2.1.2. Positive Expectations

6.2.2.2. can lead to

6.2.2.2.1. Loss of Interest

6.2.2.2.2. Addictive Qualities

7.1.1.1.1. Environmental Stimuli

7.1.1.1.2. Observational Learning

7.2. Cognitive Information Processing

7.2.1. conceives

7.2.1.1. Learners as Information Processors

7.2.1.1.1. through

7.2.1.1.2. neglecting

7.2.1.2. seeks to

7.2.1.2.1. Explain how the Mind Functions

7.3. Neuroscience

7.3.1. concerned with

7.3.1.1. Mapping Neural Functions onto Cognitive Behaviours

7.3.1.1.1. including

7.3.2. learning occurs by
