learning/stages of learning

Learning may be understood as the assimilation and task-oriented storage of information. Of importance are the logical types of the assimilated information; a series of stages, a logical hierarchy in learning has been posited, which is determined by the logical type of the learned material. The stages in learning correspond to the abstract sequence from "learning" to "learning to learn."
