Social Learning Theory
Social learning theory is a theory of learning process and social behavior which proposes that new behaviors can be acquired by observing and imitating others. It states that learning is a cognitive process that takes place in a social context and can occur directly through observation or specific instruction, even in the absence of motor reproduction or direct reinforcement. Social learning is an age-old learning and teaching strategy, supported by many cognitive scientists.
