    On mobile learning with Learning Content Management Systems: a contemporary literature review2014In: Mobile as a Mainstream – Towards Future Challenges in Mobile Learning: 13th World Conference on Mobile and Contextual Learning, mLearn 2014, Istanbul, Turkey, November 3-5, 2014, Proceedings / [ed] Marco Kalz, Yasemin Bayyurt & Marcus Specht, 2014, p. 131-145Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) are important tools for organizing learning material and communication. Increasingly mobile technologies are used for internet access; particularly important in developing countries where broadband is scarce. Mobile LCMS introduce specific challenges, which are yet not fully addressed. This paper reviews the literature on mobile LCMS for the purpose of identifying current research focus, research gaps, and future research directions regarding how to bridge the gaps and leverage CMS technology to support “mobile learning”. The concept matrix method is used to collect and analyze literature. Five prominent research areas are found; Use, access, design and infrastructure; communication and collaboration; engagement and knowledge development; content and service delivery; and implementation experiences and evaluation. A major gap identified is that research does neither clearly nor thoroughly address the intersection between learning and technology. Adjusting technologies to learning contexts and environments is a key area for future research.

    Hur ger man lärare och studenter bästa möjliga stöd och support2014In: NU2014, Umeå 8-10 oktober, Abstracts, 2014, p. 34-34Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Högskolan Dalarna har i tre år arbetat med att bygga upp en gemensam supportorganisation både för administrativa och tekniska frågor. Projektet kallades ”En väg in”, vilket var vad vi ville uppnå. Alla, både studenter och lärare ska bara ha en väg in till supporten; ett telefonnummer, en e-postadress, ett mötesrum på nätet för onlinesupport och en reception för personliga besök. I mitten av februari i år driftssattes den nya supportorganisationen. Vägen har varit lång och krokig, men vi tror på detta som ett vinnande koncept, inte bara för våra studenter och lärare, utan även för den personal som arbetar i supportorganisationen, Vi har fått en större gemenskap och förståelse för varandra mellan avdelningarna, vilket både underlättar vårt dagliga arbete och ökar trivseln bland personalen.

    Bakgrunden till projektet var att det i olika sammanhang framkommit att studenter, lärare och övrig personal upplevde att det fanns en otydlighet om vart man skulle vända sig med olika frågor, så hösten 2011 inleddes samtal mellan IT-avdelningen, Avdelningen för studentservice, NGL-centrum och Lokal- och Försörjningsavdelningen och en förstudie startades.

    Hösten 2012 tillsattes två projektledare som fick till uppgift att driva och samordna projektet Ny supportorganisation.

    Personal från de fyra ingående avdelningarna engagerades i varje delprojektgrupp, för att få en bred förankring.

    Den stora utmaningen i projektet har varit att få med sig all personal. Vi upptäckte en hel del skillnader i arbetssätt, rutiner, öppettider mm. Vi har bla arbetat med informationsmöten, dialogmöten och gruppdiskussioner. Vi har även tagit in en extern resurs som behandlat förändringsarbete och gruppdynamik. Vi ser nu efter tre år att inställningen har förändrats, från att ha varit avvaktande hos många, till att nu se fördelarna. Denna förändring i inställning var en förutsättning för att den gemensamma supportorganisationen skulle kunna driftssättas.

    Vi vill gärna dela med oss av våra erfarenheter samt ta del av hur andra lärosäten arbetar med stöd och support för sina lärare och studenter. Högskolan Dalarna har sett detta som en oerhört viktig och central del för att lärarna ska få det stöd de behöver med tekniska och administrativa frågor, för att då kunna fokusera på sin roll, att skapa förutsättningar för lärande. Lika viktigt är att studenterna ska uppleva att de snabbt och effektivt får rätt hjälp i rätt tid.

    On the concept image of complex numbers2012In: International journal of mathematical education in science and technology, ISSN 0020-739X, E-ISSN 1464-5211, Vol. 43, no 5, p. 627-641Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A study of how Swedish students understand the concept of complex numbers was performed. A questionnaire was issued reflecting the student view of own perception. Obtained answers show a variety of concept images describing how students adopt the concept of complex numbers.

    These concept images are classified into four categories in order to clarify the learning situation. Furthermore, this study also revealed a variety of misconceptions regarding this concept, and most of the misconceptions were also possible to refer to the classification system. In addition, results from an identification test show that students have difficulties discerning the basic property of complex numbers, i.e. that any number is a complex number.

    Ordförråd och ordkunskap: Språkets byggstenar2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kunskap om ord och deras betydelser är inte bara en förutsättning för en god läsutveckling utan också för hur barn ska klara sig i livet. Studier har visat att olikheter i den tidiga språkutvecklingsmiljön kan leda till slående skillnader i barns ordförråd redan i förskoleåldern. Dessa olikheter bereder stora utmaningar för dagens lärare och andra som arbetar med barn. Kännedom om hur ordinlärning stimuleras i hemmet och i förskolan kan bidra till att utjämna dessa skillnader.

    Vocabulary, Grammar and Early Gestures in Swedish Children aged 12-30 months2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on child language acquisition confirms the importance of early language development for later language and literacy skills, and documents great individual variability in children’s acquisition rates. This study aims to investigate early communicative development in a sample of Swedish children based on parental report, using Swedish versions of the MacArthur-Bates CDI. In particular, variables such as early communicative gestures, receptive and productive vocabulary, and grammatical development are explored. The study is a reanalysis of previously collected data (Cox Eriksson, 2014), using a subsample of 128 children with complete records for measures collected at six-month intervals (12, 18, 24 and 30 months of age). The analysis examines both general trends through growth curve modelling in addition to some individual trajectories. Results indicate gender differences in vocabulary profiles, and although there is no main effect of gender, girls exhibit a significantly higher rate of growth. Individual vocabulary trajectories for boys exhibit more variation than those of girls. There is also a significant effect on vocabulary size for use of the pointing gesture at 12 months. Regarding grammatical development, trajectories for girls and boys exhibit differences in variation as well as individual outliers.

    How gaze time on screen impacts the efficacy of visual instructions2018In: Heliyon, ISSN 2405-8440, Vol. 4, no 6, article id e00660Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores whether GTS (gaze time on screen) can be useful as an engagement measure in the screen mediated learning context. Research that exemplifies ways of measuring engagement in the on-line education context usually does not address engagement metrics and engagement evaluation methods that are unique to the diverse contemporary instructional media landscape. Nevertheless, unambiguous construct definitions of engagement and standardized engagement evaluation methods are needed to leverage instructional media's efficacy. By analyzing the results from a mixed methods eye-tracking study of fifty-seven participants evaluating their visual and assembly performance levels in relation to three visual, procedural instructions that are versions of the same procedural instruction, we found that the mean GTS-values in each group were rather similar. However, the original GTS-values outputted from the ET-computer were not entirely correct and needed to be manually checked and cross validated. Thus, GTS appears not to be a reliable, universally applicable automatic engagement measure in screen-based instructional efforts. Still, we could establish that the overall performance of learners was somewhat negatively impacted by lower than mean GTS-scores, when checking the performance levels of the entire group (N = 57). When checking the stimuli groups individually (N = 17, 20, 20), the structural diagram group's assembly time durations were positively influenced by higher than mean GTS-scores.

    Ecocriticism and Sustainability Education: A Reflection on Teaching English Literature to Teacher Students in Sweden2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Ecocriticism, “the study of the relationship between literature and the physical environment”, and sustainable pedagogy (or sustainable education) approach complex cultural and ecological issues from literary and cultural studies, and education respectively (Glotfelty. 1996, p. xviii). Current research in both areas is now relatively thriving, and primary, secondary and postsecondary educational institutions around the world are increasingly focused on the promotion of sustainability, particularly since the UN Decade of Education for Sustainability Education 2005-2014. However, despite the growing connections being made between sustainability and transformative learning, there are still new possibilities for ecologically-minded, creative, relational and place-based approaches to education.

    Teacher education in Sweden now provides a unique opportunity to foster synergy in the relationships between subject knowledge, pedagogical practice; higher-, secondary-, and primary- educational milieus; which can positively affect society and the environment. This idea has lead me to dwell on my own experience of teaching English literature in teacher programs from pre-school to upper secondary - specifically English for Primary School Teachers 1B, 4-6 - and the potential to connect ecocritical approaches to literature and the promotion of sustainability education.

    The Swedish rules and guidelines for sustainable development and sustainable pedagogy, and their bearing on the literature component in the subject of English seem clear, from the national and local framework documents such as högskoleförordningen (1993:100), Dalarna University’s utbildningsplan grundlärarprogrammet grundskolans årskurs 4-6 and the English for Primary School Teachers 1B, 4-6 syllabus; as well as the Läroplan för grundskolan, förskoleklassen och fritidshemmet 2011. The latter provides a clear mission statement on the role of education in fostering citizenship with an environmental awareness towards sustainable development: 

    Skolan ska i samarbete med hemmen främja elevers allsidiga personliga utveckling till aktiva, kreativa, kompetenta och ansvarskännande individer och medborgare […] Genom ett miljöperspektiv får de möjligheter både att ta ansvar för den miljö de själva direkt kan påverka och att skaffa sig ett personligt förhållningssätt till övergripande och globala miljöfrågor. Undervisningen ska belysa hur samhällets funktioner och vårt sätt att leva och arbeta kan anpassas för att skapa hållbar utveckling. (Skolverket, 2011).

    Arguably this places responsibility on the school and school teacher, as well as the whole apparatus for teacher education in higher education.

    And yet, there is a lack of ecocritical approaches to the study of literature in nearly all of the English literature courses, offered to teacher students at Dalarna University. In regard to the example course (English for Primary School Teachers 1B, 4-6), the following learning outcomes are given:

    •visa kunskap om ett urval skönlitterära texter från den engelsktalande världen

    •i tal och skrift kommunicera och argumentera för sina egna tolkningar av texterna med hjälp av ett antal litteraturvetenskapliga begrepp och teorier

    •i tal och skrift diskutera och problematisera begreppet barndom i studiet av barn- och ungdomslitteratur

    •argumentera för och reflektera över hur skönlitteratur och andra typer av kulturella texter kan användas i språkundervisning för yngre elever för att utveckla såväl språkfärdigheten som förståelsen för andra kulturer och samhällen

    •i anslutning till litteraturstudierna redogöra för och reflektera över kultur- och samhällsyttringar inom den engelskspråkiga världen samt relatera dessa till egna kulturella erfarenheter

    •visa kunskaper om kursplanen i engelska för åk 4-6 med fokus på litteratur- och kulturaspekter samt hur dessa kan omsättas i klassrummet.

    The focus on literature and its capacity to promote understanding of a wider socio-cultural perspective is evident. However, in this perspective on human culture is rarely linked to the cultural attitudes and values that have the most significant impact on the natural environment. The result of this kind of anthropocentric or human-centred thinking, can be represented in Glen A. Love’s critical question: “Why are the activities aboard the Titanic so fascinating to us that we give no heed to the waters through which we pass, or to that iceberg on the horizon?” (p. 229).

    Ultimately, it is my intention to pursue further research to look at the current dearth of ecocritical approaches to literature and sustainable education (both within higher education as a consequence, within the English primary classroom in Sweden), and the potential for interconnected thinking on sustainability: literary analysis, the educational milieu, and social and ecological issues. Finally this paper will offer some opportunities for “course design that is rooted in ecological principles”, citing a current pedagogical model such as the Burns Model of Sustainability Pedagogy, and examples from teaching ecocriticism and green cultural studies, which recognizes the “the study of the relationship between literature, education and the physical environment” (Burns, 2015, p. 265).

    Från prövande till skyddande: en fallstudie av utvecklingen av direktströmmad musikfestival2015In: Vidgade vyer över musiken / [ed] Thomas Florén, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Från prövande till skyddande, en fallstudie av utvecklingen av direktströmmad musikfestival

     

    Medieteknologiska utvecklingen har medfört att det är enkelt att direktströmma musikers scenframträdanden, med ljud och bild över internet, för olika typer av aktörer. Samverkan med externa aktörer i produktionsprojekt som görs vid Högskolan Dalarna kan vara komplexa och samtidigt öka utbildningarnas användbarhet för studenterna. Detta paper beskriver en etnografiskt inspirerad fallstudie av studenters prövande att direktströmma musikers framföranden under en årligt återkommande musikfestival åren 2013-2015. En folkbildningsorganisation agerade beställare och var musikfestivalens arrangör i projektkurser där jag fungerade som lärare. Som bakgrund använder jag tidigare forskning om hur organisering av musik- och medieproduktion förändras när ny teknologi tas i bruk. Teoretisk ansats är inspirerad av Howard Becker Art Worlds ([1982];2008). Materialet består av videoklipp och minnesanteckningar från mina deltagande observationer av musikfestivalens genomförande. Resultatbeskrivningen är kronologisk uppdelad i tre års utveckling. Detta för att beskriva utvecklingen från studenternas prövande att direktströmma musikfestivalen till arrangörens fundering över att skydda rättigheterna och exemplifieras med offentligt publicerade videoklipp. År 2015 började arrangören fundera över rättigheterna att direktströmma musikfestivalen när journalister började göra det samma. I diskussionsdelen föreslår jag hur kunskapen kan användas i högre utbildning inom musik- och medieproduktion.

    Elevers läsvanor i årskurs 3: En jämförelse mellan pojkar och flickors inställning till läsning2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna undersökning behandlar elevers läsvanor i en årskurs 3 där syftet var att jämföra pojkars och flickors olika inställning till läsning, samt om detta kan kopplas till hur mycket föräldrarna läser. Studien utgår från individuella intervjuer med 12 elever, sex pojkar och sex flickor.  I undersökningen framkommer det att pojkarna har något mer negativ inställning till läsning än flickorna, men att de allra flesta ändå läser på fritiden. En slags litteratur som återkommer hos både flickorna och pojkarna är ”mysterieböcker” eller ”spännande böcker”. Läsning av serier och tidningar förekommer hos både flickorna och pojkarna.

    Enligt elevernas svar tycks hemmens inställning till läsning variera då flertalet föräldrar aldrig läser och mycket sällan besöker biblioteket tillsammans med barnen. Undersökningen visar även att det är fler pappor än mammor som brukar läsa för sina barn hemma. Läsningen för egen del bland föräldrarna ser förhållandevis lika ut bland mammor och pappor, enligt eleverna, även om det är vanligare att mammorna läser. Studien kan dock inte dra några vidare slutsatser kring föräldrarnas läsning då resultatet endast grundas i elevernas uppfattningar.

    Abstract [cs]

    Příspěvek prezentuje příklady dobré praxe při implementaci převrácené výuky v kurzech podnikové ekonomiky a managementu na základě předchozích výzkumných studií a osobní zkušenosti z kurzů Teorie organizace (bakalářský stupeň) a Znalostní management (magisterský stupeň) a diskutuje některé výzvy a dilemata, která je třeba zvážit před zavedením tohoto pedagogického přístupu. Klíčovými závěry jsou: a) Video-přednášky by měly podněcovat zvídavost studentů ke čtení a účasti na interaktivních lekcích, nikoliv pokrývat vše, co je prezentováno v literatuře. b) Je nutné pečlivě zvážit, co si musí student připravit předem a co lze udělat během vyučování, protože příliš mnoho úkolů snižuje ochotu studentů připravit se a přijít na vyučování. c) Je vhodné využívat informace z předvýukových domácích aktivit (cvičení, on-line testy, diskuzní fóra, statistiky sledování videí atd.) k přizpůsobení aktivit ve třídě. d) Je žádoucí stimulovat studenty k účasti ve výuce, která je důležitá pro rozvoj kognitivních dovedností vyšší úrovně (aplikace, analýza a hodnocení).

    Making Learning Possible: Net based learning at Dalarna University2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Dalarna University (DU) has made a strategic choice to emphasize pedagogic development for the next generation. DU is renowned in Sweden for developing net based courses. From the perspective of the University, however, we develop pedagogical thought and e-learning possibilities for both campus and net based courses.

    The Next Generation Learning Centre (NGLc) is vital for the pedagogical development at DU. Our role is to make students’ learning possible (Ramsden 2003). According to sociocultural perspectives on learning, communicative interaction and the use of cultural artifacts are vital parts in all learning (Säljö 2000). At our university we clearly focus on different computer based systems as artifacts that support learning and that make synchronous interaction possible, in seminars as well as during lectures. We choose systems that support learning well rather than the newest technology. 

    We have defined three basic needs for the learning process and have chosen programs for information exchange (Fronter), Adobe Connect for seminars, and the “Videochat” - our own system for streaming and/or recording lectures.

    We do not consider Adobe Connect and the Videochat as virtual tools – the seminars and lectures are for real (same time – any place). Hence our conscious use of “net based” instead of “distance” courses. Students and teachers testify that they interact more in a seminar via Connect compared to in a physical lecture hall and confirm the pedagogical closeness. 

    We use systems that require as little technical knowledge from the students as possible. As a preparation for students we offer recurrent introduction courses in all our systems during the first four weeks of each semester. Equivalent courses are offered to teachers.

    The support department (NGLc) has generous opening hours to support and help teachers and students with technical and pedagogical issues. There are day courses as well as evening courses, and we provide the same support for all.

    We record and provide sign language interpretation of lectures to deaf/hearing impaired students. We also adapt Fronter for blind or visually impaired students.

    During our presentation we describe and show how we work generally with net based learning, and we will also introduce more specific solutions that have been appreciated by our teachers and students.

    Making Learning Possible: Nätbaserad utbildning vid Högskolan Dalarna2014In: NU2014 UMEÅ 8-10 OKTOBER Abstracts, 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Högskolan Dalarna (HDa) har gjort ett strategiskt/medvetet val genom att betona den pedagogiska utvecklingen för nästa generations lärande (NGL) och har under flera år utvecklat nätbaserade kurser.

    NGL centrum är ett nav i den pedagogiska utvecklingen på HDa. Vår roll är att möjliggöra studenters lärande. (Ramsden 2003). Vid vår högskola fokuserar vi på olika datorsystem som stödjer lärandet och möjliggör synkron interaktion och kommunikation, både vid seminarier och under föreläsningar. Vi har valt och utvecklat system som stödjer lärandet och kontakten mellan studenter och lärare på ett bra sätt, fokus ligger inte nödvändigtvis på den nyaste teknologin. Vi anser att det är viktigt att skapa förutsättningar för sociokulturella miljöer vid nätbaserade utbildingar och därför är seminarier och samtal mycket viktiga i våra utbildningar. (Säljö 2000). Vi har definierat tre huvudbehov för lärandeprocessen och vi har valt system för informationsutbyte (Fronter), Adobe Connect för seminarier och Videochat - vårt egenutvecklade system för föreläsningar.

    Vi vet sedan många år att föreläsningar hjälper studenterna att förstå litteraturen bättre. Ett LMS (Fronter) är ett sätt att samla information såsom scheman och uppgifter. Där sker diskussioner om innehåll och kursupplägg, inlämningar, nyheter och meddelanden.

    När det gäller föreläsningar har vi valt att använda ”live-streaming” med möjlighet att spela in föreläsningen. Vi betraktar varken Adobe Connect eller vår Videochat som virtuella verktyg. De möten som genomförs med dessa verktyg är på riktigt. Studenter och lärare vittnar ofta om att de interagerar mer i ett seminarium via Connect än vad som sker i en fysisk föreläsningssal och bekräftar den pedagogiska närheten.

    HDa har system som är säkra men vi tror samtidigt på öppenhet och lättillgänglighet. Vi välkomnar gäster in i systemen för att skapa transparens. Läraren har möjlighet att låsa mappar i vårt LMS och göra dem både säkra och privata.

    Vi vill berätta och visa för intresserade konferensdeltagare hur vi på Högskolan Dalarna jobbar generellt med nätbaserade verktyg men också visa på mer specifika lösningar som har uppskattats av våra studenter och lärare.

    The Noble Art of Problem Solving: A Critical View on a Swedish National Test2013In: Technology Teachers as Researchers: Philosophical and Empirical Technology Education Studies in the Swedish TUFF Research School / [ed] Inga-Britt Skogh & Marc J De Vries, Rotterdam: Sense Publishers , 2013, 1, p. 101-117Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Problem solving is compared to telling a good story. The example given is taken from a high-school (upper secondary) national test in Mathematics, but the idea proposed in the article can be applied to any subject in Science or Technology/Engineering concerning problem solving. The authors are critical reviewing the assessment method suggested by the Swedish authorities. A modified way of setting up the solution in steps is given. The steps are logically built referring to the way of telling a good story of any kind.

    Storytelling in problem solving is divided into six steps:

     • The Prologue: Recite the task literally.

     • The Preamble: The storyteller’s own description of the task. Discussion of what information given in the task is relevant for the solution process.

     • The plot: The mathematical solution, with all assumptions, statements, and disposition, is presented.

     • The building of tension: Numeric values ​​are processed according to the preamble and the plot.

     • The Resolution: The answer to the problem is presented and clarified.

     • The Epilogue: The answer is checked to be reasonable and representative for the problem. A check if everything is taken into account that should be considered.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this presentation is to discuss how teacher’s leadership can be used as a teaching method in language course distance. The environments that offer online courses provide a wide field for discussion of the contact teacher and student. My intention is to contribute to debate on teacher’s leadership in online courses. In my earlier studies on leadership, I have had as objective to investigate how leadership can affect different social movement in Brazil that was active under the military dictatorship (1964-1985). By examining the three tip of legitimacy described by Weber (1964), I could make an overview of the tip of the leadership that was characterized by religious leaders. Thus, I examine how teacher leadership, as a vehicle for their message can use their educational leadership skills to get students to achieve learning outcomes in their course. This issue is part of the research project “Teaching Methods in web-based language teaching-mapping” and it´s financed by NGL-center from the Dalarna University.

    Globalization and classroom practice: insights on learning about the world in Swedish and Australian schools2013In: Nordidactica: Journal of Humanities and Social Science Education, ISSN 2000-9879, no 1, p. 104-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Globalization and global education implies changes to practices at the classroom level to adapt to new imperatives associated with technology use and awareness, and environmental sustainability. It also implies much more. It implies that teachers apply their classroom pedagogy to take account of students’ new found global understandings of which they, and the school community, is largely unaware. This article addresses and discuses three key consequences of globalization for classrooms worldwide; an increased diversity of experience of the students within the classroom, an increased competitiveness of educational outcomes between national states and subsequently some standardisation of curriculum across nations to enable this, and an increased emphasis on teaching skills and values associated with intercultural understanding. Young children’s map knowledge and their resultant, and associated, interpretations of the world from a comparative study a from Swedish and Australian primary classrooms is used as examples of some of these implications of the impact of ‘global culture’ and ‘global issues’ on current and future classroom practice.

    Students' questionnaire-based views on teacher feedback on their writing2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A large part of what instructors to at university is give feedback on the written work of students. This is particularly true for those teaching languages and the process of reading and responding in writing a time-consuming process. The feedback given can concern aspects of language proficiency, sentence structure, grammatical correctness and lexical choice. Feedback is often given on content and textual issues such as paragraphing, effectiveness of arguments and level of critical analysis. As teachers, we hope that he feedback will result in an improvement in the student's revised work but also other subsequent written work. This paper investigates how one cohort of ESL univeristy students experience teacher feedback. The responses of this questionnaire-based survey show that students appreciate the feedback they get but do not always understand what it is they are expected to to.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, the focus is on the analysis of student-teacher interaction occurring in online synchronous virtual settings in higher education. The preliminary findings of the study draw upon empirical material that consists of 20 online sessions (both students-only and teacher-led, with approximately 40 hours of interaction material), that are parts of the “Italian for beginners” and “Russian for beginners” online language courses at university level and informal interviews with the participants.Our interests here relate to accounting for how students and teachers of the two online language courses interact inside a multimodal and multilingual online synchronous environment. The study deals with issues of how technology mediated multimodal communication affects power shift between teacher – student and student – student interaction. In particular the paper illustrates how videoconferencing reflects on power shifts between the participants and in what ways these shifts become significant for the learning process in these settings. Being inside the virtual classroom and only engaging in technology mediated communication to interact in a learning community means that the students and teachers need to adjust to the new media and artifacts available. The study takes a sociocultural theoretical approach to tracing the ways technology enhances or hinders communication in a community of practice where different literacy practices occur at the same time (Gee & Hayes, 2011).Preliminary findings show that the teachers as well as the students position themselves both as facilitators for other participants of the use of different modes as text chat, whiteboard, audio and video, and also as more peripheral participants who need to be guided in the communication afforded in the online environment. The active users of these different modes seem to obtain the keys to get access to the environment and the participation inside the group in contrast to the students who do not use all the available modes in the virtual settings, thus influencing the power shifts in the group during the same session.

    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary society, important activities of our daily lives are increasingly audiovisually mediated such as in film, television, games, advertising etc. In these activities, principles for storytelling and communication are used, building on socially developed conventions (Wingstedt, 2008). The voice (dialogue or voice over) in audiovisual modes of communication is often used as a resource for contributing a sense of presence, engagement, identification and immersion. This paper presents the design and preliminary results of a pilot study, where the purpose was to investigate how narrative principles for audiovisual storytelling can be applied to online learning environments. Focus is primarily on how resources for mediating the human voice can contribute to a sense of presence and immersion in the learning situation. Theories of Multimodality (Kress, 2010) and Social semiotics (van Leeuwen, 1999, 2005, and others) are used as a point of departure. In using Halliday’s (1978) three metafunctions of communication as a model – describing communicational meaning as being ideational (content), interpersonal (interaction) and textual (structure) – this study focuses on how interpersonal meaning is realized through the mode of sound.  Empirical data was collected in two kinds of online learning situations: 1) Japanese language lessons, performed in real time, and; 2) recorded lectures in the course Analysis of music productions (in the Music- and sound design programme). As one important purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the validity of the research method, it was decided to include these two disparate but common forms of online teaching/learning. In all, 16 lessons were evaluated. Half of the lessons were carried on “as usual”, using standard technical solutions for sound production and transmission. The other half of the lessons were “produced”, where aspects such as frequency range, sound level, noise, pitch and proximity were treated using professional audio technology and methods. The preferred sound ideal was not necessarily ”naturalism” but rather the heightened sense of ”hyper realism” often heard in film, where the voice sound is used to achieve a sense of immersion, continuity and presence. Each of the 16 lessons was followed by an online survey, where the students rated different communicational aspects of the session. In all, 147 individual surveys were collected. The preliminary results of these surveys will be presented, and an evaluation of different aspects of the research methodology will be discussed.
