August 2008 – November 2008. Working with John Willinsky, School of Education

My ongoing project is called Building Professional Communities of Practice in School: Practice Scaffolding Interactive Platforms (PracSIP). A PracSIP is an Internet platform which makes students able to simulate (parts of) the community of practice of a professional setting, and thereby supports their development of educationally important competencies. In collaboration with the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet I have developed a PracSIP called The Editorial Office which supports students in building a journalistic community of practice. While staying at Stanford, I will work with empirical data from Danish classes that have worked with The Editorial Office.
