“It demands attention to the science, and exploration of understanding and learning of new skills : it can be used in a lazy fashion where responsibility of learning is loaded on the learner, or it can build a relationship of mutual enjoyment and discovery.”
From Kay Laurences book; Clicker Revolution – The View From Here.
When Kay Laurences book, Clicker Revolution, came out I started to read it immediately. I loved it so much that I have started to read it again and am finding even more gems throughout the book.
“Choice belongs to the learner. They must be free, and free of fear to experiment with that choice”.
Some interesting research from the University of Glasgow.
Measuring Stress Levels in Wild Birds
I love the fact that the ability to acquire new behaviour is of phylogenic provenance (it’s an ability acquired through evolution of the species).
Consequences can also function as antecedents, but antecedents cannot function as consequences.
I never seem to stop saying this….
“Fight against something, we focus on the thing we hate. Fight for something, we focus on the thing we love.”
If you focus on what you want, want to be or get, on how to change to be what you want/want to achieve then that is what will happen.
That goes for training others and personal training for ourselves.
Behaviour does not result in consequences, the change the behaviour causes in the environment is the consequence.
It’s a process.
