Learning is an activity in which there is a process of not knowing to knowing, do not understand being understood, not being able to achieve optimal results. Learning is a relatively permanent change in behavior or potential behavior as a result of experience or training that strengthened.
Learning is a result of the interaction between stimulus and response. A person is considered to have learned something if he can show changes in behavior. According to this theory of learning that is important is the form of stimulus inputs and outputs in the form of the response.
Stimulus is whatever the teacher to the student, while the response in the form of student reactions or responses to the stimulus provided by the teacher. The process that occurs between stimulus and response is not important to note because it is not observable and can not be measured, which can be observed is the stimulus and the response, therefore what is given by the teacher (stimulus) and what was accepted by the students (response) should be observed and measured.
a. Explanation Definition
• Changes due to learning can occur in various forms of behavior, from the cognitive, affective, and / or psychomotor. Not limited to the addition of knowledge.
• The nature of the changes are relatively permanent, will not return to its original state. Does not apply to changes caused by momentary circumstances, such as changes due to fatigue, illness, drunkenness, and so on.
• The process of behavior change is expressed in the form of control, use, and assessment of the attitudes and values of knowledge contained in the various fields of study or more broadly in various aspects of life
• Changes do not have to immediately follow the learning experience. The changes did not immediately occur generally in the form of behavior, but mainly only in one's potential to behave.
• Changes are the result of an experience, practice or workout. Unlike the change immediately due to reflex or instinctive behavior.
• Changes will be more apt to occur when accompanied by a reinforcement, in the form of reward received - reward or punishment - as a consequence of a change in behavior.
• changes in the learning process towards a better purpose and useful to themselves and others.
• a sense of pride in themselves because to understand and will understand what is learned.
