Situated Learning and Education.
Anderson, John R.; And Others
Educational Researcher, v25 n4 p5-11 May 1996
Reviews the following claims of situated learning: action is grounded in the concrete situation in which it occurs; knowledge does not transfer between tasks; training by abstraction is of little use; and instruction must be done in complex, social environments. The authors, focusing on mathematics education, critically evaluate each claim and discuss some educational implications. (GR)
