Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello! This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 59th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series. Last week, Dave Powell explained Usability.

This week, Dave will discuss a term from e-Learning Theory, “Situated Learning.” So, I ask you, do you know your e-Learning Lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi Dave! What’s Situated Learning?

David Powell: Situated Learning is a model that suggests all learning is contextual and embedded in social and physical environments. Situated learning activities include workshops and field trips that take students into real world settings rather than having them confined to physical or virtual classrooms.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Thanks for that explanation, Dave. Have a great afternoon.

David Powell: You too, Mary Kay. Talk with you soon.

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to the 59th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

This week, Dave Powell talked about Situated Learning. The episode 59 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.

Next time on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast, we will discuss a term used in Knowledge Management. Until then, have a great week.
