observation on learning Yann Tchoumta

observational learning is a process in which a person observes another person’s behavior  and  the consequences of the behavior. Children are excellent example of observational learning. They watch parents, family, friends, teachers etc… and they copy it. it means that they could copy good or bad habits. so, the adults should be a model for children and assist them during their learning. Recently, a clear happened to my friend. He asks to his little brother not eat in the room because the food can bring rats. my friend told ” every day i repeat the same thing but he doesn’t understand “. when i asked to his little brother why he doesn’t obey, since he eats in his room i didn’t see rats. I concluded that because my friend doesn’t show the good example of learning. it’s like i encourage you to get a good behavior but i don’t show you the right one.

Ana Bravo: Observation on learning

People learn or take in information every day on different things, wether they are conscious or unconsciousMost of the learning humans adquire happens when they are kids. Humans learn the basics to walking, running talking and other things. However there are many things that they have to learn throughout their life, learning happens every day or most of the time. Kids learn things by looking or hearing someone doing it. Kids are taugh most things by tbeir parents and teacher’s. This is the case of my brother, since I’m the oldest I am the one who teaches and helps my brother learn. I have been observing my brother while he does his homework alone and , got to the conclusion that my brother learns how to do his homework on his own when someone teaches him twice or three times. My brother had trouble with math,and I sat with him and helped him by explaining step by step on how to do simple math. My brother would watch me do two problems or three and then say he can do it on his own. When I was done showing him how to do it, I will then give him some problems to do own his own. When he was doing his problems I saw that my brother will recall how to solve the problem. He will either use a number line or draw pictures. But after two problems he will use his fingers or nothing at all (may e every time he counted, he will count on his mind),this got me to think that after some problems he got confident and used only his hand,he wouldn’t need to draw or use a number line which was good.

observation and attention- Jennifer Urban

Labor day I spent it hanging out with some friends. For the first 30 mins I observed them using their phones. I calculated who picked it up the most times and then realized why was this important to me so I decided to tell them about my observation then began observing them again after I told them. After telling them I realized that they noticed my every move after words. They looked at me as I jotted each observation down and by the second half of the hour I realized that they used they’re phones less. This observation to me was important because it shows that humans do not realize what others around them are doing unless you point it out. This observation reminds me of the video we saw in class and how mostly everyone missed the person in a costume walking towards the middle of the scene. These two observations relate because it proves how humans can be deceived by their eyes when told to complete one specific task or not told at all.

Yann Tchoumta observation on attention/focus

The attention acts in our brain. It allows us to focus on what part of what is going on around us, while we ignore the environment. The attention is necessary for us to take information from our senses like seeing. we use that process for thinking, solving problem because it helps us to save information. when we pay attention we focus on something and save the information easily. pay attention and focus on something or think about something may have different effects on us, it depends on what we think. it can create the attraction which could be positive or negative we call that “Attraction law” to bring the attraction you have to convince yourself  that you want what you focus on it.

for example in the documentary “Attraction law” the author explains that the attraction law has changed the way he think. when we focus on something strongly, what we wish to get  during our thought will become true. that is a different part of the attention. now we have the case where i watch the television because i pay attention and focus on the scene something is burning in the kitchen and i’m not able to smell that.

Ana Bravo Observation on Attention

When a person is thinking about something or doing something they filter out their surrounding. A person puts all of their attention to one thing that the rest does not matter. The brain cannot perform many things at once and for this, it only focuses on one thing and ignores the rest. The person may be able to catch some parts of the ignored things or may not. Last week, I went to to the Hospital to pick up some results. To kill time I started reading my book and really focused on the book that I started to imagine the scenes of the book, and forget that I was at the hospital.I ignored where I was until I felt a tap on my shoulder, it was the nurse. The nurse said that she had called my name twice but I didn’t remember to hear anything.
