Customer Question

I am writing my final paper and I am having a issue doing the comparison between the child development theories. This my question what are similarity and difference in the cognitive, Learning and contextual theories? For example Skinner, Watson and Pavlov were behaviorist theorist and Piaget and Urie Bronfendernner developmental theorist. I understand their concepts but can not seem to do a similarity and difference in their concepts.

Hi Mary!

 

Just so I am clear -- you are to discuss the similarities/differences between (1) Skinner, Watson and Pavlov with (2) Piaget and Bronfenbrenner (corrected spelling)?

 

Is that right?

This is the question, compare and contrast three concepts of each theory points of similarity and points of diffrence in cognitive, learning and contextual theories.

I wrote about those theorist in my paper. Skinner, Watson and Pavlov are under behavoirst theorist who theories are the learning theories, Piaget was (congnitive theory), and Bronfenbrenner (contextual theory).
Expert:  Nancy replied 5 years ago.

Okay... so behaviorists believe that development (growing intellectually) is determined by consequences. Whereas Cognitive theorists believe that development is a result of mastering new age-appropriate stages, and contextual theorists believe that development is a result of environmental and contextual interaction with the world around you.

 

Similarities include the idea that children do not develop in a vacuum- that development is a result of interaction with the world

 

Differences include the idea that development occurs as a result of feedback (beha) or interaction.

 

With this in mind, you can now choose two other issues, such as "how people learn" or "morals" for instance and add that to how development occurs. Use topics that you've learned about in the course. Most likely those were morality, sexuality, intellect, development, learniing, attachment and so on....

 

Does this help?
