The aim of the contribution is to present Spiro’s vision of learning and instruction, which emphasises the complex aspect of reality and of the bad structure and irregularities found in many areas of knowledge, which constitute serious obstacles to reaching Post-introductory knowledge. To achieve this we must change the focus of the prospective aimed at emphasising the need to recover previous recorded knowledge, to an alternative which places the emphasis on reassembling the knowledge in a flexible way. This presupposes the capacity to know how to represent the knowledge from prospective concepts and from different situations, and to know how to reconstruct, from those different representations, a complex knowledge structured both for responding to the needs of comprehension and for problem solving. In order for the learner to develop these capacities of flexible cognitive elaboration and to acquire knowledge structures that can help them satisfactorily, it is necessary to project a flexible learning environment that facilitates the presentation and the learning of these various aspects of knowledge, for a variety of different uses in a cognitively tractable manner.
