By Terry Freedman

We ran two 1 day workshops with students and teacher representatives from Bolton’s high schools. There was a 3:1 ratio of students to teachers.

In terms of learning we were focusing upon the development of a range of concepts which were driven by an acute awareness of audience & purpose.

Concepts investigated were strongly related to issues connected to the following:

  • Working collaboratively online e.g. writing, drafting, editing & re-drafting.

  • Social responsibility/values e.g. students setting the guideline for engagement with WikiVille, deciding on acceptable/ unacceptable practice such as plagiarism & causing offence.

  • Critical thinking & web literacy e.g. challenging what we find online and being slow to accept what was found as ‘the truth’.

  • Cultural differences and the way in which the media paints our lives and therefore influences our perception of the world e.g. how we can re-address this through vehicles for 21st Century global student voice, like WikiVille.
