Are there optimal conditions for learning? If so, what are they? If not, why not?
I definitely think there are optimal conditions for learning. Two types of optimal conditions that can affect learning are biological and environmental. As for biological, the more an individual places a value of emotion on information he or she needs or wants to remember, the better the chance of recalling that information. Although, placing to much emotion or overly averse emotion on information may make it difficult to remember. As for environmental, one needs to be as close to his or her environment as possible during learning (a room with minimal background noise) as to the environment when an individual needs to recall learned information; which enables an individual to have a better memory for recalling learned information. Certain individuals think watching TV is okay when studying but when it is time to recall learned information in a classroom there will be no TV. Basically, order in an individual's environment is beneficial for learning.
