Situated learning is an instructional approach developed by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger in the early 1990s, and follows the work of Dewey, Vygotsky, and others (Clancey, 1995) who claim that students are more inclined to learn by actively participating in the learning experience. Situated learning theories also are critically examined in relation to the kinds of educational experiences that flow from the manner in which learning is framed, who or what the “teacher” is in any one instance of learning, how the “learner” is positioned, and the role of the interpersonal dynamics such as affect and power.

Over 80% of the 16-20 year olds learn through "dual mode", i.e. They work in harmony When the teacher allows learners to have an opportunity to participate, demonstrate and interact their own thoughts, this will build their cognition abilities. Situated learning is an instructional approach that may be able to bridge the gap between formal theoretical learning imparted by educators and informal learning reliant on the independent, self-directed learner to transfer their knowledge to real-world applications (Resnick, 1987). Thus, the term « situated » refers not only to the immediate context of learning but to the whole culture in which the learning situation takes place and which structures the cognitive activity of the learners.
