Operant Conditioning for Special Educators.
Pedrini, Bonnie C.; Pedrini, D. T.
The paper briefly explains operant conditioning as it pertains to special educators. Operant conditioning is thought to be an efficient method for modifying student behavior. Using the B. F. Skinner frame of reference, operant conditioning is said to include behavior modification and therapy, programed instruction, and computer assisted and computer managed instruction, each of which is briefly defined in outline form. A life experiences approach to operant conditioning is advocated for the low income groups and the disadvantaged. Three source materials in programed instruction and computer assisted instruction are then noted. (CB)
