Bundsgaard's contribution to Danish language ICT didactics -

The Danish language teacher is usually the primary home class teacher in our folkeskole (primary and lower secondary). And, information and communication technologies may foster a changed view on language literacy

Jeppe Bundsgaard, Ph.D defended his thesis on Friday 12, at the Danish University of Education (where I've been studying since 1994, a never ending love story) and I decided to attend the ceremonial event. His research and theory building seem to be extremely relevant to our work with the Nordic Voice online conference that we're preparing, so I decided to print the press release that was just ready, and bring it with me, just in case I met people who would like to know. I would like to dive deeper into this research study and find ways to introduce this to our Community of Practice, with an invitation to Jeppe and his research partner, Lisbet Kühn - for future collaboration. Their book and exemplary action research would make some good inspiration and discussion stuff as a contribution to our CoP (still under devleopment, not yet a reality).
