Layman's description

Learning is not an isolated cognitive experience in the learner's brain. In addition to personal learning capacity (i.e. genetics and personal characteristics), the extent to which learning takes place is strongly dependent on the context and conditions in which a person attempts to learn. Context is defined as the (learning) environment in which learning takes place (e.g. school, museum, workplace, everyday life) and conditions as variables that directly influence the learner's biopsychology negatively (e.g. stress, fatigue, illness, attention disorder) or positively (e.g. basic psychological needs, motivation, self-confidence, learning strategies, exercise, healthy diet, adequate sleep). Together, context and conditions form the basis for lifelong learning.
