I wonder how punishment affects learning behaviors?
I got it! I am going to perform an experiment to figure out if my theory is right!
A Week Later...
Thank you for being here. As promised, here is your $4.50 for participating in this experiment. One of you will be the teacher will the other is the student. You shall answer a series of questions and for each wrong question will result in shock with varying levels of volts
That answer is incorrect sir, 350 volts now.
Let me out! I want to be done!
The experiment requires you to continue!
Why didn’t I just stop?
After completing eight different experiments, I have learned that mtheory is right. Sure many of the learners and students are kinda brain dead now, but at least we now know that punishment does greatly impact learning
