    Advantage of behaviorist accproach: -the learner is focused on a clear goal and can respond automatically to the cues of that goal. - W.W.II pilots were conditioned to react to silhouettes of enemy planes, a response which one would hope became automatic.Advantage of programmed learning: Learning tasks are broken down into manageable chunks The learner receives valuable feedback The learners can proceed at their own pace Reason why programmed learnin gis criticized:Learner has no control over tasks to be undertaken or the sequencing of them Based on a view of learning which sees knowledge as comprising aggregates of discrete elements Why I think it's still popular despite criticism:- It can be incorporated with computer assisted softwares, which is a definite trend of learning in the future.- Less reliance on the personal teaching abilities of the teacher, thus ensure the average qualities of teaching.
