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?

The Danish Facebook Election

The Danish election in 2011 sets itself apart from the previous elections as being the first election in the age of Social Media. Back in 2007 Facebook was still in its infancy in Denmark – both when it came to amount of users as well as using Facebook as a tool in a political campaign.

Journalism redefined

Here’s the main points from my presentation at Nordic Tech Politics in Oslo, Sep 2nd 2011.

Everybody in online journalism knows things have to change. We’re stuck in print reality, where journalism equals the written word. Where print still has higher status than online content.
