Instructed learning refers to the second stage of cultural learning in the theory of cultural learning of Tomasello et al. involving a more accomplished person instructing a less accomplished person. Instructed learning requires that children learn about the adult, specifically about the adult's understanding of the task and how that compares with their own understanding; contrast with imitative learning, collaborative learning.
