Elements and implications of a hypertext pedagogy

Computers & Education Volume 31, Number 2, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This paper describes elements of a pedagogy for writing hypertext stories in year eight classes in secondary schools. Over a period of 18 months, 100 students in three schools completed handwritten and hypertext stories. The pedagogical elements identified include the use of pictures in hypertexts, collaboration, screen-based writing, non-linear writing and student oral presentations of hypertext stories with an LCD projector. Some future trends in students' hypertext writing research are identified. The paper argues that the teaching practices described challenge accepted notions of teaching.
