    14. Wiki features • Easy to create websites • Project development with peer review • Group authoring • Track a group project • Using a wiki “pulls” the group members together to build and edit the document on a wiki page, which strengthens the community within the group, • Allows group members with overlapping or similar ideas to see and collaboratively build on each other’s work. • Allows all group members immediate, equal access to the most recent version of the document.

    15. Social technologies in teaching • Characteristics of millennial learners: teamworkers, multi-taskers, 24/7 connected… • Community, collaboration and communication – learning as a social process • Social software can be used to engage millennial learners in ways that work best for them. • Social software is generally inexpensive or free, and template based, requiring less technical skills and allowing focus on the content.
