2  Perspective,  Perceptions,  Learning Opportunities

3 Perspective Situated Learning (Lave and Wegner)  Peripheral participation  Central participation

4 Ecological Perception  Emphasis: an active process

5  Our perception of the environment is base on our interaction with the objects, agents and events we encounter in that environment.  The phenomena of Anthropomorphism is influential in the formation of that perception.

7 Learning Opportunities  Affordances  Authentic Activity  Active, Incidental and Situated learning.  Situated Learning

8 Situated Learning  Apprenticeship  Collaboration  Reflection  Coaching  Multiple Practise  Articulation of learning

9  Authentic Activity  Active Learning  Incidental Learning What examples of the following types of learning do you think exist in simulations?

10 Food For Thought! Stimulation Through Simulation?  Educational implications?  Consumer implications?  Design implications?

11 Website  Handout  Scenarios  PowerPoint  Links  Readings
