Talent is God’s gift some children are greatly gifted by God as talented and intelligent. Learning is a development that comes from exercise and effort. Through learning children acquire competence in using their hereditary resources. Learning is a change in behavior in a specific situation due to experience in that situation. Children’s behavior in specific situation can change if they become tired or frustrated. Changes involve learning, only if they are the result of children experience, rather than the other causes. Children learn not to repeat mistakes that are punished and repeat the actions that are rewarded. The principle of learning that explains these effects was stated most precisely by B.F.Skinner. He defined behaviors that are emitted spontaneously by an organism as “operant”. He chose this term because these behaviors show how the organism “operates” on the environment. He proposed that the operants are controlled by their consequences. Operants that are rewarded or followed by reinforcement are strengthened and become more likely in the future. Operant that are followed by punishment are weakened and become less likely.
On the subject of nature versus nurture, Bandura admitted that genetics plays a role in children’s development, but they are less interested in defining this role than in exploring the effects of children’s environments. Finally, learning theorists recognize that children’s development differs greatly across cultures. However, they argue that these variations can be explained by difference in children’s environments. These theorists assume that the same principles of learning apply in all cultures. At the most important level, then, they argue not for cultural specificity but for developmental universals.
