comparing classical and operant conditioning

2 methods used in operant conditioning to speed up the desired response to increase motivation and eliminate the possibility of irrelevant responses
ex of discrimination in operant conditioning you know that asking for candy in a pleasant voice will get candy; asking for candy in a pouty voice won't
apply operant conditioning in sports batters first learn to hit the ball by having it pitched from 10 feet away w/an oversized ball, then it matches their level more as the pitcher moves back more, and the ball's size is reduced
apply operant conditioning at work managers positively reinforce employees immediately when an achievement is done. in this way productivity is increased
apply operant conditioning at home omission training; reward the behavior that you want to make it increase, when an unwanted behavior is not present. when a child puts the dishes away, reward them. when they don't, give a little punishment
apply operant conditioning in self-improvement reinforce the behavior that you want to increase it by rewarding it when it is performed, or by monitoring how often you engage in your desired behavior
apply operant conditioning at school electronic adaptive quizzes; students must be told immediately whether they are right or wrong AND be able to be directed to the next step when right (their own pace of learning)
describe response acquisition for classical conditioning stimulus>>response; stimulates an INVOLUNTARY response; learning passively
describe response acquisition for operant conditioning response>>result/stimulus; stimulates a VOLUNTARY response; learning actively; naturalistic, therefore, it takes a longer time
ex of stimulus generalization in operant conditioning transfer a learned behavior to similar stimuli; when receiving cookies for saying "mama", you'll call almost anyone you see in hopes of receiving cookies
ex of response generalization in operant conditioning behavior similar but diff from original response to stimulus; instead of saying "mama", you might end up saying "gaga" or "baba"
superstitious behavior repeat action based on perceived reinforcement. Has no direct link as to what will happen in the future. (random reward in skinner box)
