Using scenarios for learning
Interesting theories about learning and unintentional learning. I guess I agree that in many cases you could argue that "learning is unintentional and situated within authentic activity, context and culture." This is useful in terms of reminding oneself that context is very important, vital even, in developing learning.

I would, however, argue that this is not the whole story with regards to learning and that a lot of learning is, in fact, intentional, otherwise why would anyone enrol for classes? So I would treat the learning is unintentional theory as a good tool but not make it the entire basis of my teaching.
