* Situated_Cognition (dutch)


Situated cognition describes a perspective of human cognition that asserts learning happens as human beings interact with the living world.

Lave en Wenger (2001): "Activities, tasks, functions, and understandings do not exist in isolation; they are part of broader systems of relations in which they have meaning. These systems of relations arise out of and are reproduced and developed within social communities, which are in part systems of relations among persons. Learning thus implies becoming a different person with respect to the possibilities enabled by these systems of relations"
