We wan’t to listen, says Danish prime minister

The new Danish prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, emphasized in her first official press meeting that meeting the Danes will be a priority for the government from now until Christmas:

“The ministers of the government want to lead when it comes to listening.  That’s why there toward Christmas will be made a model where we have a so-called reception for the citizens. All ministers will have that, it will last for two hours, and it will be at different places around the country that we will have this kind of audience. It’s an old tradition that we resume and all ministers will be a part of it.”

Blogging enters the classroom

Can a blog post replace an exam paper? Well, it’s worth trying.

Since 2010 Anna Ebbesen and I have taught a class at a Master at Roskilde University. The topic is strategically communication and social media, so we wanted to test the student and the teaching format by making the examination form more digital and closer to a real job situation than an academic paper. The students have to write and post a blog post and a Facebook update as part of the exam. In addition they have to write a short academic paper, to make sure the exam form meets the academic standards.

It’s time to shake up the traditional learning methods and bring them up to speed with the communication methods and technologies that most of us use on a daily basis. Why not let them into the classroom too?

Når det offentlige gemmer sig for borgerne

Offentlige hjemmesider er dyre at lave og svære at finde. Den udfordring vil de to forfattere Thomas Høgenhaven og Lasse Lundberg Andreasen gerne afhjælpe.

Bogen Når internettet har magten er spækket med guldkorn og brugbare eksempler for dem, der arbejder med det offentliges digitale kommunikation. Og det er ikke kun relevant for webmastere, men for alle som publicerer artikler eller har beslutningskraft over en offentlig hjemmeside.

Et nyheds-scoop for Facebook

En række amerikanske medier lancerede i torsdags i samarbejde med Facebook en social nyhedslæser-app. Her kan Facebook-brugerne læse artikler fra en række medier gratis i Facebook, uden at skulle over på sitet. Det gælder bl.a. Washington Post, Guardian, The Daily og The Independent (som dog er placeret på deres eget site). Wall Street Journal lancerede for nylig en lignende app.

Mediernes strategi overfor Facebook synes at være: ”If you can’t beat them, join them”.
