EDU501 Learning Theories|Cognitive Learning

Introduction Cognitive learning is a change in knowledge attributable to experience (1). It differs from behavioral learning in that cognitive learning involves a change in the learner’s knowledge whereas behavioral learning involves a change in the learner’s behavior. Cognitive learning theories help us to understand how children learn. Cognitive learning theories explain how factors, internal and external, influence individual mental processes that supplement learning. Several theorists have written theories that focus on this topic. As educators, it is important to understand the various attributes of the theories and how they may illuminate the ways in which students learn.
