BANDURA'S BOBO DOLL EXPERIMENT The experiment started with the question what caused kids to be aggressive. This turned into a controlled experiment with dividing a group of kids into aggressive, non-aggressive, and control. They saw how kids acted based on what they saw from their models. The kids more often did act like their models. Kim noticed the bully came from a harsh place and thought it was like the Bobo Doll Experiment.
What Does the Bobo Doll Experiment Reveal About Kids and Aggression?
SOCIAL LEARNING THEORY (BANDURA'S BOBO DOLL EXPERIMENT)/ORIGIN: In his experiment, Albert Bandura showed how people can learn new behaviors by observing those of others; the little child imitated the adult's violent actions to the bobo doll. EXPLANATION: The Bobo Doll Experiment can refer to how people can influence the behaviors of others by their mere actions. EXAMPLE: Josh's parents "taught" him to yell at his friends like the adult "taught" the kids beat up Bandura's Bobo Doll.
