  • The theory that meaningful learning takes place in complex, authentic situations, not in isolation. The interaction of learners with these situations influences their ability to develop a meaningful understanding of new concepts and skills and to transfer new skills to other relevant situations. Providing students with opportunities to allow the context of a situation to guide their learning more closely simulates how people learn in real-world situations. For more information, see Brown, Collins, and Duguid (1989).
