What is Learning?
Learning is many different stimuli and a change due to an experience. This can be knowledge gained by studying or instruction or modification to a behavior due to an experience. Learning is neither a reflex nor a change due to development. Some examples of learning are:
1) A young girl riding a bike for the first time
2) A young boy saying his first word
3) A girl starts crying when she finds out she has to read out load
4) A boy realizes after learning subtraction and addition that if 5+4=9 then 9-4=5 and 9-5=4
There are two main theories of learning behavioral and cognitive. Behavioral is explanations that emphasize observable changes. While cognitive focuses on mental process.
