Comparison

    Differences

    • Experiential/experimental basis

    • Socialization/collaboration

    • Problem-solving/critical thinking


Comparison

  • Situated Learning vs. Activity Structures

    • Both are “fluid” to meet the needs of participants

    • Both employ the use of real-life situations

    • Activity structures are focused more on tele-collaborative projects
