Psychology of Learning Part 1

Learning according to psychologist, is the change in behaviour due to environmental influences. As humans, we live to learn. There is a huge difference in the way we learn things, the simple, yet strange ways a child behaves, are completely different from the complex behaviour of adult - the emotions, skills, habits, character and the rest will sum up what learning has done to adult behaviour.
Humans readily interacts with, or behave in a certain way due to how we perceive our environment. Such act makes us alter the way we interpret the incoming stimuli which make us want to deal with it effectively. So learning can also be a permanent change in behaviour as result of our environment.
First let's look at what the psychology of behaviour tells us.

What is behaviourism
 Behaviourism believes that all actions are learned through conditioning processes. This school of thought is first introduced by prominent psychologist such as John B. Watson and B.F. Skinner. The concept of behaviourism tells us that all behaviour are learned. Learning can occur to associations or occur to Rewards and Punishments. For example, if a teacher rewards a student with good grades and praise in front of a class, for been intelligent and of good behaviour - as a result, the student is more likely to continue to exhibit good behaviour in order to be rewarded.
The psychology of learning dwells on a variety of topics relating to how the changes in human behaviour is learned.
Types of Learning
  • Verbal learning. This learning process is about the things we do - like, how we talk, walk, speak, pictures, figures, learning materials and methods and others.
  • Learning by Discriminating. In this type of learning, the ability to differentiate between stimuli and response is referred to as discrimination learning. For example, an aircraft is built with different sections that include: first-class section, business-class, and economy class.
  • Motor skills learning. In our daily lives, a lot of the activities we engaged in required the use of muscular capacity - people learn how to do certain things in order to adapt or keep a regular lifestyle. For example, dancing, running, driving, diving, skating, climbing, hiking and so on.
  • Problem solving (learning). This is the most important aspect of learning. This act involves the use of cognitive thinking, observing, reasoning and others. The major key is to have the ability to overcome and solve complex problems faced by some people.
  • Learning by orientation. This act of learning involves higher mental processes and it includes; reasoning, intelligence, thinking, imagining, observing etc. We have different stages where we learn by orientation - from childhood to teenage-hood to adulthood. For instance, when we come across an object or a concept we are familiar with, we become inquisitive and seek to understand and learn. This learning process is essential for identifying things, seeking, and recognising the truth.
Learning Conditioning
One of the basic principles of how learning affects behaviour is gotten from the theories of learning. This include; classical conditioning, operant conditioning, observational learning process, visual learning and Trial and error learning.

Watford wins Man United 3 - 1

It seems Jose Mourinho's vision to make Man United the World's most feared club is still a dream.Following a transfer outlay of £150million (over £100million for Paul Pogba alone) before the league started,Man Unites has lost three consecutive games to Man city,Feyernord and Watford.


Man United was beaten by Watford about 30 years ago,so you might start to wonder if Mourinho has joined the league of coaches who break negative records just like his predecessors David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.Despite a equaliser from Rashford,goals from Suniga,Etienne Capoue and a penalty by Deeney successfully secured three points for watford.

Twenty minutes into the game play,Ighalo and Deeney tried the goal keeper but it wasn't long before the first goal of the game was conceived.Martail collected the balled after a corner kick,controlled the ball well even though he was well tackled and passed the ball to Capoue who calmly shot the ball into the net.

At the end of the first half,Old Trafford club was left frustrated because Watford's playing tactics with Deeney and Ighalo pressing Man United wingers worked fine.At the start of the second half,slight changes have been made in Man United's formation,Rashford and Rooney concentrated on playing at the centre and it paid off in the 62nd minute when Rashford scored after some good skills by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

In the 84th minute,Zuniga scored the second goal of the day for Watford.Few minutes later,Fellaini committed a foul in Man United's box 18 and Watford's Captain Deeney did not waste in adding one more goal to the two they scored already.

Marriage Vows Are Not Nursery Rhymes,They are Sacred!- Betty Irabor Says

 Publisher of Genevieve Magazine, Betty Irabor, who has been married to her husband, Soni Irabor for 34 years, took Facebook page to advise women to take their marriage vows seriously. According to her. What she wrote below

"What's in a vow? Two weeks ago, I had arthroscopy and as always, my hubby was by my side; just as he was always there through out my ante-natal days and two deliveries. Ask him what hour my children were born and he would give you the minute by minute details. He would have been in the theater for the arthroscopy if he was allowed. Before I was wheeled in, we goofed around and took pictures. 


He made me laugh so much that all anxiety vanished. As I momentarily looked back on the day Soni and I exchanged vows "to love each other for better for worse, in sickness and in health" I realised that many couples have no idea of the weight of those vows until one of the two partners faces some physical, mental, financial and emotional setback. And then that moment when it dawns on you that your marriage was founded on convenience. In sickness and in health!? What does that even mean? I know of a man who moved into the guest room the moment his wife was diagnosed with cancer leaving her to travel that bleak journey alone. 

I know of women whose husbands cannot even be reached when their wives go into labour...I know of women who bail out of their marriages because their husband's biz took a nose dive..."for better for worse?" Right? As I was wheeled back into my room, there he was... His face a mix of anxiety and an assuring smile!! Like most young ladies, I was starry eyed when I took my vows, they were just vows; I was getting married and hoped to live happily ever after. 

The truth is, those vows are not some nursery rhymes you repeat after the priest or pastors,they are sacred! Your marriage will depend on them! Don't utter them unless you're ready to live true to them. Taking those vows in front of 500 applauding guests is not the same as renewing them everyday in front of that one person to whom the vow was uttered. Life happens. We can't avoid that. But give your marriage the best shot. Don't give up on each other too soon. Don't forget those vows. Hold them dear to your heart. In all of our journey together Soni and I have found ourselves under the umbrella of His grace! Our latter years shine even more than the former. We bless God!
