The focus of this assessment is on learning theories. Consider an experience you had when you learned something new. For instance, buying a new smartphone, updating the operating system on your computer, attending a seminar, or driving a car with a manual transmission for the first time are all examples of learning.

In preparation for this assessment, use the attached research and think about how each can contribute to your understanding of how you were able to learn, or your understanding of the challenges you faced during the learning process.
Directions
For this assessment, complete the following:
1. Describe the learning experience you had when you learned something new. Make sure to elaborate on the learning goals and any associated changes in behavior. Compare the behavior patterns before the learning event and what differences in thought, feeling, or behavior occurred after the learning.
2. Summarize briefly three different learning theories. Cite scholarly articles to support your summaries.
3. Explain how the summarized learning theories can or cannot explain the progress that you made regarding your learning experience.

The way we define learning and what we believe about the way learning occurs has important implications for situations in which we want to facilitate changes in what people know and/or do. Learning theories provide instructional designers with verified instructional strategies and techniques for facilitating learning as well as a foundation for intelligent strategy selection. Yet many designers are operating under the constraints of a limited theoretical background. This paper is an attempt to familiarize designers with three relevant positions on learning (behavioral, cognitive, and constructivist) which provide structured foundations for planning and conducting instructional design activities. Each learning perspective is discussed in terms of its specific interpretation of the learning process and the resulting implications for instructional designers and educational practitioners. The information presented here provides the reader with a comparison of these three different viewpoints and illustrates how these differences might be translated into practical applications in instructional situations.
4. Describe what insights you have gained from the theories that you can use to improve your learning process the next time you are faced with the challenge of learning something new.
5. Consider the following scenario: Sam has just joined a basketball team and is new to the sport. He understands the rules but needs to learn the skills involved in the game. Using the theories, you researched, develop two or three different strategies to teach Sam the skills of the game.
