Prosjekt sammen med kollega Kristin Holte Haug

Se Kristins blogg der hun beskriver prosjektet Digital ankara_2013historiefortelling i arbeidsplassbasert barnehagelærerutdanning som jeg er så heldig å få være med på.


Labour party knowledge conference 2013


Unfortunately the prime minister had left by the time it was my turn, but still – exciting to be invited to talk about digital storytelling as one way to use ICT for learning. A way where students create the learning objects.


Resources from University of Gloucestershire

I visited University of Gloucestershire in 2009 at a concluding conference after a year of piloting DS in a number of courses. A while ago the link to the project website became a dead end, and I was sad to loose this rich source.  So I was really happy today when I came across this: Digital Storytelling Synthesis. Check it out if you are interested in experiences with DS for learning in higher education.


DS8 – Digital Storytelling Festival

..will be arranged June 14th in Cardiff. I have attended twice and it’s a really good venue for digital storytelling. New this year is that they open up for everyone to send in an abstract. Deadline March 29th. Check out the details and the program (to be published) at the conference website.

Digital historiefortelling og forskningsformidling

Ble invitert til å snakke om DH på sin konferanse “Fra forskning til forside”. En spennende utfordring siden dette var noe vi satset mye på i starten av prosjektet men der vi har relativt lite å vise til. Fikk veldig god hjelp av medlemmer av det internasjonale nettverket. Håper å få en artikkel ut av dette, men foreløpig får det holde med selve presentasjonen. Linker til filmene som ble vist ligger på siste side,

Exciting seminar in Lillehammer (again:-))

Nordiske utdanningsinstitusjoner for sosialpedagogikk (NUFS) arranged a conference focusing on digital culture in the education of social workers and other related areas. Digital storytelling was a main topic addressed in several talks. There were two issues that I found particularly interesting: 1) How can we analyze how the students work in the process of DS and how can we describe (or even measure?) the learning outcome, and 2) If it’s true, as many of us experience, that most students lack basic skills in visual literacy, it is a paradox that we ask them to reflect seriously on questions of identity and professional identity in a language they do not master?


Spanish and English hand in hand – both in name and content in this International conference. Just returned after exciting days in lovely Valencia. Presented a paper together with Kristin Holte Haug, and our theme was how to take DS from pilot project to ordinary learning practice; “how to build sustainable structures?” Hopefully papers will be published soon.
