Distance Teaching on Bornholm

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


    The case study represents an example of a top-down introduction of distance teaching as part of Danish trials with the introduction of multimedia in education. The study is concerned with the background, aim and context of the trial as well as the role and working of the technology and the organisational set-up. It is debated which kind of social learning that has taken place. The innovation process was based on the implementation of an inflexible video-conference system without any proactive considerations of organisational change or pedagocical development. User appropriation of the technology was confined to technical problem solving pursued by teachers, students and a limited technical staff. The outcome was a prolonged and troublesome learning and implementation process.
