Cognition incorporates numerous variables that may affect how we learn. For this discussion address the following:
Explain social cognitive theory (SCT). Evaluate the applicability of SCT to a real-life experience. Hint: Is there something you know about or a behavior that you display that was learned from your social environment? Were you modeled this behavior? Did the learned knowledge or behavior have consequences that encouraged you to adopt it? Evaluate your example by answering the following questions: How does your learned knowledge or behavior potentially affect your developed schemata? What if you learned that this knowledge or behavior was not accurate? How hard would it be to adapt or accommodate? SCT suggests that the environment affects our knowledge or behaviors. What does reciprocal determinism suggest and why is this important? Share an example from your own experiences of reciprocal determinism.
