Social Learning Theory Also known as the Social Cognitive Theory The Social Learning Theory was developed by Albert  Bandura in the 1970s, as a way to understand human  behavior. The social learning theory focuses on learning occurring  within a social environment or context.  People learn by observing the behavior of others and the  outcomes of these behaviors (Ormrod, 1999).   Cognition plays a role in learning (Ormrod, 1999).   The social learning theory is often considered a transition  between the cognitive learning theories and behaviorist  learning theories (Ormrod,1999)

Facts continued Attention is a critical part of learning in the social learning  theory (Ormond, 1999). Bandura noticed a difference in learning through observation  and learning through imitation (Ormrod, 1999). Behaviors are also imitated without any reward (The New  York Times Company, 2010) The learner must be aware of the connection between the  action and the consequence to learn form the behavior  (Ormrod, 1999). Summation:  People not only learn from their own  experiences, but also from the action of others and the  results of those actions (Ormrod, 1999).
