I have been following this thread since July 11 and still need to pin
down how they can be differentiated.

Bremme's suggestion on Barab and Duffy could clarify CoP in learning
but is there a definitive line between situated learning and socio-
cultural learning? Should it be viewed as trajectory and separate
(Mary) or grey areas that intertwine within both thoughts?
