This picture is an easy way of understanding situated cognition. I definitely believe that the way a task is understood is dependent on the surroundings it is within. As an EMT, I may have learned skills in a classroom, but I became a better EMT by actually working on an ambulance. I became better at working under pressure and was able to research more information on things I didn’t understand. I can take the most intelligent doctor in the world and put him on an ambulance and he would have not nearly enough skill to work the way we do.
