Connecting Authentic Activities with Multimedia to Enhance Teaching and Learning, An Exemplar from Scottish History

Much of the current focus on maximizing the potential of ICT to enhance teaching and learning is on learning tasks rather than the technology. These learning tasks increasingly employ a constructivist, problem-based methodology especially one based around authentic learning. The problem-based nature of history provides fertile ground for this approach when combined with the scope for enquiry provided by primary and secondary sources. Barnhill forms one in a series of CD ROMs on themes within Scottish History which combine a wide range of historical sources and learning tasks including those built around authentic learning. The context is Scotland’s History, but both the design of Barnhill and its learning tasks have a much wider application
