Pavlov's Dog

Logo for Pavlov's Dog
In this game, you will find out if you can train a dog to drool on command! Ivan Pavlov's description on how animals (and humans) can be trained to respond in a certain way to a particular stimulus, has drawn a tremendous amount of interest ever since he first presented his findings. His work paved the way for a new and objective method of studying animal and human behavior.

This Flash presentation is a fun way for students to play with the principles of classical conditioning with a virtual dog. However, I think it would be important to review the concepts first, before introducing the learning object. Otherwise, students may become frustrated by the lack of instructions with the material.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to use, but you must have Flash.

I found this learning object to be very helpful in teaching classical conditioning and learning. A student actually referred it to me and I have since used it as supportive learning material in my course. I think it is provides good quality content, is an effective tool, is easy to use, and is fun!

Need Flash 6
