Digital eye contact – important or not?

Here is a life hack on how you easily can make your video calls more personal and closer to a meeting in real life. All you need is two mirrors, one small, one larger, and a smartphone tripod for the small mirror above the built in camera.

Livslångt lärande eller svärande?

Våra lärosäten satsar allt mer på det som brukar gå under benämningen ”Livslångt lärande”. Uppdrags- och vidareutbildningar för näringslivet och yrkesverksamma. Mycket talar för att en stor del av dessa kurser kommer att ges online, eller delvis online. Tanken är god, men jag oroas över att styrkeförhållandet mellan mediepedagogik/produktion och IT-teknik är så ojämnt. ViFortsätt läsa ”Livslångt lärande eller svärande?”

Visual and Digital Quality, Autumn 2020!

We have all experienced a very different and stressful spring semester, which has now turned into summer holidays and vacations for most of us, but it also gives us some space for reflection on what we have experienced and worked with during these chaotic months. I have worked with digitalisation of education for 10 yearsFortsätt läsa ”Visual and Digital Quality, Autumn 2020!”

Just a video?

I have previously mentioned that video and film in education are nothing new. But in recent years, digitalization has led to an explosive increase in the use of audiovisual learning materials of various kinds. There are those who claim that video is an overly passive teaching material, and it definitely can be. A video createdFortsätt läsa ”Just a video?”

The digital elephant that no one wants to pretend!

Schools and universities have had several years to become more digital in their education. Unfortunately, far from everyone has taken it seriously, and the usual thing is to focus more on IT, educational platforms and digital tools of various kinds. However, I find it very difficult to understand how to disregard the fact that allFortsätt läsa ”The digital elephant that no one wants to pretend!”

Visualize your teaching!

I got a text from a teacher to read and visualize. The video took about 3 hours to produce. First I read the text using the smartphone and handsfree as a microphone, inside a wardrobe 🙂 Then I imported the audio file into the video editing app Camtasia. Then I listened to the content andFortsätt läsa ”Visualize your teaching!”


I have long advocated the idea of a so-called ”Teacher Team”, a team that has received some coaching in visual and digital learning etc. Teachers, students, teacher assistants, ICT-pedagogues etc. who help each other create, find, package, distribute and administer digital learning materials of various kinds. All for a more accessible, sustainable, media pedagogic andFortsätt läsa ”SCHOOLYWOOD?”

Right tool for right purpose!

Use Zoom, or equivalent, for livestream, smartphones to shoot with, and Camtasia for screen recording, video editing and subtitling! The result:

Flipped Streaming

Flipped Classroom is a well-known e-learning concept that is largely based on the fact that a certain part of regular classroom teaching is conducted online and at a distance. Streamed videos are common of this type of digital education. ”Flipped Streaming” is my comment to all the increased streaming in education we are seeing now,Fortsätt läsa ”Flipped Streaming”

To stream or not to stream video – that is the question we should ask ourselves today!

During the last crazy corona week I have followed a large number of facebook groups from different countries, and I would like to share a couple of reflections on that. Teachers seem to have a lot of problems with livestreams of video and bandwidth, and Im not surprised, not at all. Is it really thatFortsätt läsa ”To stream or not to stream video – that is the question we should ask ourselves today!”
