B. F. Skinner built on the classic behavioristic principles to develop his theory on human behavior. His theory has since been expanded and applied in many practical areas. This assignment focuses on Skinnerâ€™s legacy by examining contemporary applications of his ideas of reinforcement learning.
In a paper of 1,250-1,5000 Â words, demonstrate Skinner’s legacy. Include the following in your paper:
- A discussion of the modern-day applications of reinforcement learning in education.
- A discussion of the modern-day applications of reinforcement learning in behavior therapy.
**Reminder that there is a significant difference between general behavior andÂ behavior therapy–used to treat, modify and reinforce (Skinner) behaviors.
Be sure to address “behavior therapy” (e.g, Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) for ADHD, etc.) and not general behavior. So be sure to conduct research for related therapies that treat, modify, and reinforce a change in behavior.
