  • 4. Real-world contexts
    Are based on real-life issues, problems, experiences, examples
    Focus on the application (knowledge-in-use) rather than the mere memorisation of theories, principles

    Use of simulations or games to recreate a model or modified version of a real-world situation (e.g., flight simulator, McDonald’s)
    Mimic real-world use of current tools(watch this video)
