Activity 4: Community-wide Repository Class Wiki

Scenario for assignments 1, 2, & 3:
As a group you have agreed to make learning more engaging and relevant to learners as a focus for your department plan over the next two years. In order to reach this goal, faculty members, including yourself, have determined that it's necessary to explore and engage in existing authentic activities and share your knowledge of these activities with your fellow department members before you each attempt to design your own activity. Thus, you've all decided, in pairs, to pick one type of authentic learning activity (e.g. role play, simulation, case study, web quests, portfolios, PBL, immersive, etc.) to investigate further. The pairs will be visiting a variety of sites and evaluating one of the activity types against Herrington, Herrington and Oliver's 9 critical characteristics of authentic learning, as well, consider the affordances within technology mediated online environments that enable learners to engage in authentic activities.
