Natural Environment Teaching (NET) refers to teaching skills and generalization in natural environment or "real world" using ABA principles.
For example, you might teach a student to receptively and expressively label colors of items at the table. Then, during NET the student would get to practice the skill by labelling colors of legos they are playing with.
