4 types of Learning Transfer with examples.
1.Positive Transfer: Transfer that occurs when previous learning helps learning.
Example: Learning to drive an automatic Volkswagen would be helpful for learning how to drive an automatic BMW. These two German cars have many similar features.
2.Negative Transfer: Transfer that occurs when previous learning hinders further learning.
Example: Driving on right-sided vehicles hinders learning to adapt on left-sided vehicles.
3.Near Transfer: Transfer of knowledge between similar contexts.
Example: If the original learning task involved adding two-digit numbers, near transfer might involve adding three-digit numbers.
4.Far Transfer: Transfer of knowledge between dissimilar contexts.
Example: If the original learning task involved number problems, far transfer might involve word problems.
