Here, There, and Anywhere: Transfer of Learning
Camp, Deanne
Critical Questions in Education, v3 n1 p35-42 Win 2012
Public education in the United States is sequenced in such a manner that a skill learned at one level is then transferred to a more complex skill at yet a higher level. In addition, the individual concepts or grade-level-expectations based on state Standards are designed this way. Bransford, Brown, and Cocking (1999) stated, "Educators hope that students will transfer learning from one problem to another within a course, from one year in school to another, between school and home, and from school to the workplace" (p. 39). Transfer of learning can be explained by saying that teachers need to make sure students understand and tuck the learning into their schema before moving on. In this way, transfer of learning occurs here, there, and anywhere.
