Second, while knowledge anchored in context is important for initial learning, it is also inflexible without some level of abstraction that goes beyond the context. Transfer of knowledge goes far beyond simply repeating memorized material but to being able to take old knowledge and experiences and apply this old knowledge to a new concept and being able to use both the new and old knowledge to solving a problem that you have never encountered before.
This hypothesis was also put forth very early in the development of research on transfer of identical elements, mentioned previously Thorndike and Woodworth, ; Woodworth,but it was hard to test experimentally until there was a way to identify task components.

The implementation of strategies for both types of reasoning will provide students with the opportunity to develop both equally and use both interchangeably outside of the school environment. You can facilitate a glitch-free learning and transfer process by adopting these measures even before the training program starts.
