We all indulge in some form of Social Learning or other. According to Richard Walters and Albert Bandura who proposed the Social Learning Theory, we learn from each other through observation, imitation and modelling. The Social Learning Theory that Walters and Bandura came up with is regarded as a bridge between the cognitive and behaviourist learning theories as it touches upon aspects such as memory, motivation and attention.
Walters and Bandura have made some interesting observations. According to the Social Learning Theory first outlined by them in 1963 and then discussed in further detail in 1977:
The social media phenomenon that we see today justifies a lot of these observations they made with their Social Learning Theory. Almost everything has gone “social” today and if this phenomenon is not leveraged for learning, you’re missing out on something that a majority of your learner population relates to.
