Q: 3. Who is the theorist behind Operant Conditioning?
A: How To Use Operant conditioning in your classroom Discipline is important for a child's success and development - most teaching staff would vouch for that. [ It's easy to think that discipline is always a form of punishment, but in truth, this doesn't have to be the case. Operant conditioning encourages positive reinforcement, which can be applied in the classroom environment to get the good
behavior you want - and need - from your pupils. Skinner's theory of operant conditioning uses both positive and negative reinforcements to encourage good and wanted behavior whilst deterring bad and unwanted behavior. Psychologists have observed that we every action has a consequence, and if this is good, the person is more likely to do it again in the future. However, if the consequence isn't so great, it is likely the individual will avoid doing it in a similar situation next time round. It is through this process that we develop our behaviors and begin to understand what is appropriate and useful, and what isn't. Used in a variety of situations, operant conditioning has been found to be particularly effective in the classroom environment. One of the main ways of reinforcing a behavior is through praise, as the following example illustrates. ]

User: What is operant conditioning

Weegy: Operant conditioning is a form of behaviorism put forth by the American psychologist B.F. Skinner. Skinner theorized that all behavior is created in reaction to environmental stimuli. [ He believed that this occurred in conjunction with a series of punishments and rewards. That is, when a person is rewarded for a behavior, it is more likely to occur again. However, when a person is punished, she is less likely to repeat the behavior. Operant conditioning has practical advantages, specifically in the area of education.
