Evaluation of Social cognitive theory


you have decided that you want to learn
to play football so you join your older brother for his football training your
brother’s football coach happens to be quite the intellectual so he starts the
training session by explaining how learning occurs through a combination of
personal inner factors and environmental social factors you may have got talent
for playing football coaches or be very driven you may also have role models you
admire or parents who teaches to guide you this concept the coach explains is
called reciprocal determinism role-models says the coach are
particularly important for learning although we often learn things on their
own through trial and error through direct instruction we also learn by
observing others we model the behavior of people around us and that is how we
learn the norms of a group whether you will learn the coach continuous depends
on four factors attention retention production and motivation the first
factor is very important for all types of learning is attention if you do not
pay attention you cannot learn however we must beware o the Duquette won’t pay
attention if you do not feel motivated to learn the second factor for learning
is retention memory is essential for learning especially the memory of what
rewards a skill can give you people play football to win because victory sweet
people play football for fitness because it makes you feel better if there was no
reward in playing football people would stop playing it the third factor is
production you can only learn a skill if there’s opportunity to learn it if
people stop you from going to school you can’t learn to read or write
it wouldn’t be any football pitches where you live it would be hard of you
to learn how to play football finally and perhaps most important of
all is the motivation to learn a particular skill motivation is affected
by yourself efficacy but you believe or can be persuaded to believe your ability
to succeed look at all successful football
the coach says and see how confident they seem did they become confident
because they were good at what they were doing or was it their confidence that
make them good at what they were doing perhaps it was a combination of both
motivation is also affected by identification would extend to identify
with potential role models who exercise the skill boys are more likely than
girls to play football because sadly there are more male role models in
football fortunately this is not changing the theory I have explained to
you says the coach who happens to be an ex ecologist is called social cognitive
theory the theory can explain almost any skill or social serialization process in
social and culture groups it can be applied in sports in education be used
for health promotion and more there’s much evidence to support it especially
on children however although it can predict what you will be successful in
learning a skill to a certain extent there are so many unknown personal and
situational factors so it’s almost impossible for me to know which are you
will become a great football players it may not always be the one with most
talent the coach finally stops talking and let you play some football GE you
tell your brother does he always talk this much I’ll rather learn by observing
and doing
