Digitisation in Public Education
I finished my second master thesis in late 2016, based on a five month ethnographic-inspired research process following digitising strategies for the danish public school. I have a fundamental academic sweet spot for education and I want to be part of exploring, influencing and challenging the direction it is going. I believe that a healthy development of education, especially in an accelerating technological world, can only be ensured if it is approached with a multidisciplinary mindset.
Teachers, public institutions, researchers, private developers, physiologists etc. alike should all come together to create or recreate the relevant environments for understanding and solving the challenges that basic education can be a part of solving in the long run.
I share my recommendations and reviews about podcasts, blogs, and books on a bi-monthly basis in one of my favourite magazines; SCENARIO. SCENARIO is an award-winning magazine run by incredibly intelligent people about trends, ideas, visions, and possible futures. For more than seven years the magazine has presented the trends and tendencies that are worth keeping an eye on. We cover phenomena in the fields of media, culture, consumer culture, communication, business, society, futures studies, and the natural sciences. If you’re curious about what I read about and listen to, you can read about my reviews in the journal, and while on the subject, I’ll also highly recommend you to read more and subscribe to the magazine.
CIFS MEMBERS REPORT
In 2016 I had the pleasure of co-authoring the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) members report about Individual Resilience. The report examines what skills we as humans require to survive and thrive in the 21st century where uncertainty, demographic changes, technological interdependence and much more play increasingly more important roles in our work and everyday lives.
My contribution to this report specifically focused on the current and future major technological contributions and developments like robotics, artificial intelligence and biotechnology, and how they can change our health, work and relationships.
National Innovation Measurement and Innovative Capacity in the ICT sectors of Denmark and Spain
I wrote my first master thesis while I was studying in Madrid, as part of the double degree, in 2014. There I specialised in European innovation policy and management, as well as technology, science and society in general.
Using mostly quantitative data, I made a comparative study between Denmark and Spain’s national innovative capacities, focusing on the fast-growing ICT sector, with an inherent critique of where public innovation measurement is today.
Social criticism told through literature and the role of the individual during the Cuban Revolution.
I studied Spanish language and culture at the University of Copenhagen and finished my BA degree there in 2013. My love for studying Spanish and South American culture grew big after a two-month stay in Cuba in early 2010, where I travelled around the island alone soaking up the unique Cuban culture. During my studies I realised that one cannot study culture without experiencing it, and I think this was the first time I realised the inherent strength in qualitative research in general.
I wrote my BA thesis on the subject of how homosexuality and social and societal criticism was portrayed through literature during the Revolution, which was so strongly censored.
