Contextualism

For any learning to take place, the learner should be able to connect to the setting in which learning is expected to happen. For example, if you want to teach a child how to ride a bicycle, you cannot show a simulation or a video tutorial. Instead, take her to an open ground and give a real tutorial-- give her a bike, teach her to sit on the seat, then tell her to hold the handles, place her feet on the pedals, and finally start peddling. You can provide assistance by allowing the bike to have training wheels or holding her so she does not fall off the bike. Now, let her pedal away to glory…(figuratively speaking of course!).
