2. Go to the following link. (There are no instructions other than to select option 1, 2, or 3. It is up to you to figure out how to get things to happen. Some of the things you may encounter are “virtual candy” and noises. Make sure your speakers are on.) If you have any problems accessing the skinner box, try right clicking in the box and then click play. ALso, use the regular number keys above the letters on your keyboard and not the keypad.
3. What principles of operant conditioning did the activity use (more specifically: positive or negative reinforcement or positive or negative punishment)? Discuss your experiences with the activity (how did you figure it out, etc.). (Warning.. you need to stick with the activity. It can be tricky to figure out, but don’t give up! Stating you could not figure it out will not provide credit for the assignment) 🙂
4. Provide a real-life example of operant conditioning. Describe the example and identify which principle of operant conditioning were used.
4. Then for fun (to de-stress from this activity!) , check out this link that demonstrates classical conditioning and this link that demonstrates operant conditioning (primarily positive reinforcement) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mt4N9GSBoMI
