    The contextual learning theory is based on the notion that learning can only occur when students are able to connect content with context. That is, students must be able to relate the lesson presented in a classroom setting to something familiar in his or her daily life. This theory is used heavily in career and technical education by relating much of the content in the classroom to the world of work through many different avenues.
    A study by the US Department of Education, through its Office of Vocational and Adult Education, produced the following definition of the contextual learning theory:

    EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING THEORY
    by Kristi Smith
    ...
    According to Wikipedia, experiential learning is learning through reflection on doing, which is often contrasted with rote or didactic learning. Experiential learning is related to, but not synonymous with, experiential [[#|education]], action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning. While there are relationships and connections between all these theories of education, importantly they are also separate terms with separate meanings.
    Experiential learning focuses on the learning process for the individual (unlike experiential education, which focuses on the transactive process between teacher and learner). An example of experiential learning is going to the zoo and learning through observation and interaction with the zoo environment, as opposed to reading about animals from a book. Thus, one makes discoveries and experiments with knowledge firsthand, instead of hearing or reading about others' experiences.

    Focused Imaging - the process of internally visualizing an object, event, or situation, has the potential to nurture and enhance a student's creativity. Imaging enables students to relax and allow their imaginations to take them on journeys, to "experience" situations first hand, and to respond with their senses to the mental images formed. In the classroom, imaging exercises nurture and develop students' creative potentials. Teachers can encourage divergent thinking by asking students to transform a teacher guided image into several others of their own creation, to imagine various solutions for spatial or design problems, or to visualize a particular scene or event and then imagine what might happen next. Imaging provides a focus and an opportunity for open-minded exploration of new concepts in all areas of study. It can help broaden students' conceptual understanding of subject area material, especially complex concepts and processes. Imaging allows students to connect their prior experiences to new ideas under investigation.

    Other_Focuses_of_Social_Network_TheoryBusiness is not the only area affected by the rise of online social networks. It seems like successful social networks grow like weeds. Just look at how massive Facebook and MySpace have become. A good social network establishes the foundation for its users, and then allows them to do their thing - with minimal interference. As a network adds users its value grows exponentially.There have been both positive and negative impacts on education, entertainment, and even terrorist attacks through social networking tools. A suicide by a teen was related to a false profile on MySpace, for example, and the terrorists who attacked Mumbai, India in 2008 used social networks to coordinate their violence. Just as social networks have become part of everyday life, the theory behind them is a science as interesting as it is essential.
