Abstract:What does it mean to learn or understand? Situated learning posits that understanding/meaning/learning are all relative to actions. Knowledge is inextricably bound to contexts: to do is to know, and all knowledge is situated in social, physical and cultural contexts. This is the foundation for situated learning: it is social and a person's identity is part of belonging to a culture through participation/interactions in that culture. Learning needs to be situated, this author feels that people should be encouraged to maintain their culture and beliefs and values within the post-secondary school system. The power of culture is strong.
