My current research looks at Transformation Design and User Driven Innovation for the Experience Economy. Despite the suggestion of business hype in this description, there is a very real need to make “freemium” business models sustainable at a local scale. My main focus right now is on historical adventure games and mobile technology in a number of projects in cooperation with Danish museums using narrative concepts linking historical information, museum objects and specific geographic locations. Young learners are engaged in production of quality content that can be disseminated via mobile internet and web 2.0 learning communities.
