Mental templates facilitate the reception process of brain signals and the interpretation of nerve impulses of an individual upon understanding any phenomena. These mediators are termed as “explanation structures,” which are not just characterized by long-run memorized traits nor momentary constructions, but extensible and revisable themes. This section illustrates this concept through classifying its significance in “understanding” based on a model called the Access Framework. The theory states that to be able to exhibit understanding (that mainly includes creation, expansion and modification of explanation structures), the learner must access four wide-ranging divisions of resources: knowledge, representations, retrieval methods and construction systems. In the remaining paragraphs, these four dimensions of understanding are integrated with the development of educational program and practice, independent and/or beyond the traditional “textbook” knowledge.
