					Social Learning Theory
The social learning theory was planned by Bandura. It acknowledges the
importance of observing and modeling behaviors, attitudes, and emotional
reactions of others.

According to Bandura (1977), most human behavior is learned observationally
through modeling: from perceptive others one forms an inspiration of however
new behaviors are performed, andon later occasions this coded information
might be a guide for actions. The Social learning theoryexplains of human
behavior in terms of continuous reciprocal interaction between psychological
feature, behavioral, and environmental influences




Social learning has four processes:
1. Attention processes
People learn from a model exclusively they acknowledge and listen to its
important selections. In order to look out, it's needed to concentrate. one
factor that detracts the eye goes to have a negative result on experimental
learning. If a model fascinating or there's a particular model of side to things,
it's further potential to dedicate the full attention to learning.



2. Retention processes
A model’s influence can depend on however well the individual remembers the
model’s action after it's not directly out there. the power to store information
is additionally a crucial part of the employment methodology. Retention
square measure generally jam-packed with kind of things, however the
powerto pull up information later and act on that is vital to experimental
learning.

3. Motor copy processes
After someone has seen a replacemen t behavior by perceptive the model, the
observation need to be converted to doing. the power to store information is
additionally a crucial a part of the employment process. Retention ar e
generally jam-packed with kind of things, however the power to tug
upinformation later and act on that is vital to experimental learning.
4. Reinforcement processes
Individuals ar driven to exhibit the sculptured behavior if positive incentives of
rewards are provided. Finally, thus as for experimental learning to achiev e
success, you have to be driven to imitate the behavior that has been
sculptured. Reinforcement and punishment play a crucial role in motivation.
Whereas experiencing these motivators ar e generally highly effective,
therefore will perceptive utterly total ly different expertise some sort of
reinforcement or punishment. as an example, if you see another student
rewarded with further credit for being to class on time, you may begin to
emphasise many minutes timely a routine.

Principles of social learning ar as follows:
1. the best level of experimental learning is achieved by 1st organizing and
rehearsing the sculptured behavior symbolically then enacting it overtly.
writing sculptured behaviour into words, labels or photos leads to higher
retention than merely perceptive.

2. people ar further potential to adopt a sculptured behavior, if it leads to
outcomes they value.

3. people ar further potential to adopt a sculptured behavior, if the model is
reminiscent of the observer and has favored standing so the beh avior has
purposeful worth
