As I was preparing for my class report on the Social Learning Theory by Albert Bandura, some realizations came creeping in. Here they are, in a nutshell:
“The social learning theory proposed by Albert Bandura has become perhaps the most influential theory of learning and development. His theory added a social element, arguing that people can learn new information and behaviors by watching other people. ” – About.com
“This was one of the first experiments to look at the impact of television violence. The complicated relationship between TV and behavior is still being debated. But it was Bandura who opened the floodgates and launched and entirely new area of research.” – BBCFour
…. And yet, this truth did not only come to exist in 1977 when Albert Bandura “opened the floodgates;” it had been around for thousands of years, taught by God himself: “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” – Hebrews 13:7
“Not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” – 1 Peter 5:3
“Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:1
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” – Matthew 7:12
