Assignment 3: Conclusion

Unit of Work: Authentic Learning Environment (Bullying Wiki)


The Bullying Wiki is an example of an authentic ICT task that can be created for students to develop their 21st Century skills. Taking into consideration the affordances and limitations as well as trends and issues that have been reported in research, it can be possible to alleviate and circumvent any problems that may arise as well as build upon the best elements wikis can provide. By carefully scaffolding students before, during and after the main task, learning can be greatly enhanced and engagement maintained to a maximum level. ICT can be such a powerful tool in supporting and developing skills such as creative and critical thinking, technological literacy, cooperation and collaboration as well as critical literacy. The motivation students have towards technological tools is a major positive factor and wikis are a brilliant tool to support this.
