An overview of the characteristics of the approach 

the approach that we did was behavioral approach, which aims to develop habit I the learners and in the process decided which approach is the most effective to the learners. this model uses serious, of prompts to get responses for, leaners, and feedbacks are continuously given to the learners to model their progresses on track.

A discussion of how the approach does or does not align with your chosen topic.

my approach does align well with our chosen topic, since the approach focuses on behaviorism and that a big part of the behaviorism approach focuses on the feedback given to the learners, it will align well with our topic of operant conditioning. Operant conditioning focused on giving either positive or negative feedbacks to the learners and these could either done by reduction or reinforcement to them to shape them into a certain behavior. Therefore, both my topic and the behaviorism approach constitute a same step that is very important to its framework which is constantly using feedback to give to the target to keep their progress on track and shape their actions to the desired outcome.

If it has a place in your final Interactive Learning Design (why or why not)

In terms of using it in the final interactive learning design, it well be used since operant conditioning focused on interaction by feedbacks to model the behavior of the learners, and this is also a key factor of the behaverialism approach.

As for our learning design, we will be using direct instruction, therefore behavioral approach would be very suitable since giving reinforcement in very proactive behavioral approach, combined with the use of direct instruction method, the teacher was able to demonstrate what they want the student to be receiving without any barrier, and the student are able to understand simple messages without facing much of the confusion. A clear and concise messages to give to student is always easier on both the teacher and the student’s side when it comes to expressing one’s idea.
