THE IMPORTANCE OF CHARACTERS IN GAMES
Social learning theory focuses on the importance of observation and modelling as a key part in the learning process alongside classical and operant conditioning.
Social learning was illustrated by one of my favourite experiments by Banduras Bobo Doll experiment in 1961. Modelling is taking on board the behaviours which we observe from people around us. In society, we are surrounded by role models, who illustrate both positive and negative behaviours. For children this modelling is an essential part of their development, helping to mould them into the person they are to become. It is also important for adults as well.
