Abstract: 
This paper reviews the issues of authenticity in learning and educational technologies.
Instead of undermining the authenticity of schools or communities of learners (CoLs), we
acknowledge schools as having equally legitimate authenticities compared with communities of
practice (CoPs). Founded on such an argument, we propose the role of scaffolding learners from
CoLs and CoPs. A critical review of approaches to authenticity forms a major part of this paper,
and a recommendation of a framework to scaffold learners from CoLs to CoPs with augmentation
supports is recommended. We argue that such a process leads to innovation. We recommend an
agenda for the field of CSCL to consider.
