:: The New Update on Adult Learning Theory
A companion work to 1993's popular An Update on Adult Learning Theory,
this issue provides the adult learning educator with the latest
developments, significant research, and continuing scholarship in
andragogy and self-directed learning. Articles also introduce pioneering
developments in adult learning research, including new understandings of
the brain's relationship to mind and consciousness and the role of
emotions, feelings, and the imagination in the learning process. As an
assessment of adult learning theory today, this volume is an
indispensable resource for adult learning educators committed to
delivering a more effective practice in the classroom, in the workplace,
or in the community.

Innovation and Intentional Learning Research
The theoretical basis for the successful intentional learning theory and
construct hypothesis initially derives from careful review of
theory of learning
Schema theory was developed by R. C. Anderson, a respected educational
psychologist . This learning theory views organized knowledge as an
elaborate network of abstract mental structures which represent one's
understanding of the world.
as an integral part of learning culture
This artificial, multileveled separation of play from praxis (work) and
thought, as a result of the debasement of the importance of play in
culture, clearly influences learning theory and educational design.
Learning theory has become synonymous in many educational contexts with
a theory of child development.

principals on brain-based learning research.
One of the key issues to look at when examining any Learning Theory is
Transfer of Learning. Over the past 20 years or so, a learning theory
called Situated Learning has been developed. A unifying concept emerging
from situated learning research is "communities of
practice"--the idea that learning is constituted through the
sharing of purposeful, patterned activity (Lave Wenger, 1989).
Constructs from situated learning research and John Dewey's philosophy
support a distinction between technological settings for collaboration
and truly collaborative technologies.
The area of cognition is less well developed in adult learning research
and theory. In this section, we have looked briefly at the theoretical
and philosophical foundations for our understanding of adult learning

Computational learning theorya theoretical branch of machine
learningdevelops and studies algorithmic models of learning, using tools
from analysis of algorithms, theory of computation, probability and
statistics, game theory, and cryptography. Fundamental models and
results in computational learning theory have established the
learnability or non-learnability of a number of classes of concepts from
various kinds of information.
