Abstract
We continue the discussion of cognitive and situative perspectives by identifying several important points on which we judge the perspectives to be in agreement: (a) Individual and social perspectives on activity are both fundamentally important in education; (b) Learning can be general, and abstractions can be efficacious, but they sometimes aren't; (c) Situative and cognitive approaches can cast light on different aspects of the educational process, and both should be pursued vigorously; (d) Educational innovations should be informed by the available scientific knowledge base and should be evaluated and analyzed with rigorous research methods

Individual and Social Perspectives on Activity Are Both Fundamentally Important in Education  Learning Can Be General, and Abstractions Can Be Efficacious, but They Sometimes Aren't Situative and Cognitive Approaches Can Cast Light on Different Aspects of the Educational Process, and Both | Should Be Pursued Vigorously Educational Innovations Should Be Informed by the Available Scientific Knowledge Base and Should Be Evaluated and Analyzed With Rigorous Research Methods; the Advancement of Education Requires Continued Research Efforts on a Large Scale  
Notes and Quotes
The moral? Let us get on with the task of making deep and solid inquiries into learning processes, using the best methods we can bring to bear to advance scientific knowledge and understanding of learning from the variety of research perspectives that are available. A high priority should be given to research that progresses toward unifying the diverse perspectives within which we currently work, both because this is scientifically important and because it will increase the usefulness of our findings for informing public debates about educational policy and practice.
