Long term internet evangelist, pundit and netizen. I believe in freedom of expression and in the powers of online in the democratization of our world. I have worked in the middle east and northern africa with these issues, but I’m also actively pushing the envelope in the already connected world. Let’s not destroy the potential of our free internet. I commit 50% of my time to pro bono work, always trying to be honest and do good shit.

Head of Internet emeritus, City of Helsingborg. I’m was hired over two year to make sure that the city (10.000 employees and a total of 137.900 pop) became the #1 internet city in the world, and that  we use the internet in every way – to be the best city possible. My work here is done ;)

Recent updates:

  • I was appointed ”expert” by the Swedish Prime minister and worked with him at the Northern Future Forum.
  • I became the first recipient of the Sparbanksstiftelsen Social media award. Honor and 100000SEK, I’m happy and humbled. Thank you!
  • When the ”Golden Link” for the first time ever awarded an individual rather than an organisation, 2014, I was the proud recipient. The first Golden Link Award was presented in 1999 and has since then become a yearly, much anticipated event. The prize is awarded to the governmental authority or similar public organization, e.g. municipalities, county councils etc., for the most innovative eGovernment development.

It promises to be the single most important technological driver in learning teachnology in the future as it promises 'smart' delivery across the learning journey in; engagement, support, delivery, personalisation, consolidation and assessment.

Evolution of learning: the potential of mixed realities

Will the new mixed realities of learning truly work?

Technology with the potential to transform learning is here: full VR, augmentation, mixed realities. Much pioneering work that came out of the military is having mainstream impact. In this session, we explore the underlying learning methodology: how are these new 'realities' helping us learn better, if, indeed, they are. We will consider the technology, the psychology, and learner experience. How do the new realities affect the learning experience from the point of psychology and neurology: how do they work? What is the capability and use cases of current technology: does this align with the psychology? What can we do, in everyday organisations, to utilise these new 'realities', leveraging our understanding of the neurology and hard experience of others? We will explore the following technologies: virtual reality (simulations for skills training), virtual reality (simulations for developing reasoning and analytic capability) augmented reality (contexts for enhancing decision making and action) and constructive simulations (reactive and adaptive scenario-based learning).
