-Legitimate Peripheral Participation: Learning viewed as situated activity.
“Learners inevitably participate in communities of practitioners and that the mastery of knowledge and skill requires newcomers to move toward full participation…” p. 29
I understand the Legitimate peripheral participation to be a situation such as the 30 English workshops, and a lot of the 130 classrooms. They are environments where students are pushed into this world that asks them to be learners as well as participants in their own work as well as the wrk of others.

– Communities of practice
– Apprenticeship: Five different parts or branches of apprenticeship that Lave and Wenger talk about. Learners are apprentices, teachers and computers are the masters, cognitive apprenticeship, apprenticeship learning, as well as life as apprenticeship. (Lave and Wenger)
I think it’s interesting how highly they think of computers to say that they could be considered masters.
– “glass box approach”
– “Situated Learning”
pg. 32 Similiar to Dewey in the sense that they view children as “legitimate peripheral participants”
