Discuss the merits of each learning theory, Cognitive Learning, Operant Conditioning, Classical ConditioningNote:
In cognitive learning, the individual learns by listening, watching, touching, reading, or experiencing and then processing and remembering the information. Cognitive learning might seem to be passive learning, because there is no motor movement. [ However, the learner is quite active, in a cognitive way, in processing and remembering newly incoming information.
Cognitive learning enables us to create and transmit a complex culture that includes symbols, values, beliefs and norms. Because cognitive activity is involved in many aspects of human behavior, it might seem that cognitive learning only takes place in human beings. However, many different species of animals are capable of observational learning. For example, a monkey in the zoo, sometimes imitates human visitors or other monkeys. Nevertheless, most information about cognitive learning is obtained from studies on human beings. http://library.thinkquest.org/26618/en-5.5.3=cognitive%20learning.htm

I'm sorry that that wasn't a good answer. Please hold on while I contact an expert.Weegy:
Cognitive learning looks at mental processes like it has memory models and stuff so it can explain learning very well.Operant conditioning is a form of learning during which an individual modifies the occurrence and form of its own behavior due to [ [ the consequences of the behavior. [ Operant conditioning is distinguished from classical conditioning (also called respondent conditioning) in that operant conditioning deals with the modification of "voluntary behavior" or operant behavior. Operant behavior "operates" on the environment and is maintained by its consequences, while classical conditioning deals with the conditioning of reflexive (reflex) behaviors which are elicited by antecedent conditions. Behaviors conditioned via a classical conditioning procedure are not maintained by consequences. ] ] Expert answered|Fanboy|Points 2211|
