A case study on scaffolding design for wiki-based collaborative knowledge building
Abstract Social software, particularly Wiki, is proSocial software, particularly Wiki, is providing new opportunities for computer-based collaborative learning by supporting more flexible sharing, communication, co-writing, collaborative knowledge building and learning community building. This paper presents a case study on how to scaffold wiki-based collaborative knowledge building in a tertiary education environment, which is expected to be a useful exploration of pedagogy with wikis. The paper proposes a theoretical scaffolding framework for wiki-based collaborative knowledge building, in which cognitive process, motivation and skills are concerned as the backbone of scaffolding design. Then, implementation results of this framework in a bachelor degree course are reported in the paper. Results of the implementation were positive. As predicted, both participation rate and quality of social construction were improved. The paper concludes with a discussion and reflection on issues relevant to implementation of scaffolding framework, including designing scaffolding strategies, the role of instructors, improvement of wiki systems and further researches.nt of wiki systems and further researches.
