“ I feel thin… sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.”
By now, I am all schizophrenic due to all of the different representations of me online. Contrary to any idea about “convergence” or ingenious “black boxes”, I seem to be present a great number of places; Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Play Consulting, Spilskole.dk, GAMEiT, Games in Schools etc. This surely promotes the feeling of being “butter scraped over too much bread”, and it is hard to keep an updated overview of what is going on. This is true for myself, but probably even more so for anyone wanting to know, what I am actually doing.
This, therefore, is thought to be my primary point of reference. Here I will continuously update the blog, and link to all my other relevant projects.
But who am “I”?
Well, I am like any regular boy trying to make a living doing what I love. Passion and curiosity would probably be keywords in describing me. I am always exploring life, profesionally as well as in private. Always trying to walk where I have not yet walked, seeing and doing what I have not yet seen or done.
I own a small consulting agency called Play Consulting, and I am especially fascinated with the learning potentials of video games. This is not to say, that all I ever talk about is games. From time to time, I also say something about Facebook and Twitter. And whatever is buzzing.
Even so, I consider my most important task to be that of supplying the educational sector with sufficient knowledge to increase the creative use of digital media. Herein lie invaluable ressources, and I strive to explore the many possibilities, combining knowledge from both research and practice.
By now I’ve written a bit about my efforts here and there. I’m becoming more and more convinced, that education must be revolving around the notion of relevance and with my take on games in education, I think games can be tremendously helpful when used the right ways. For an introduction to games and learning, see this video-post with some of the most important figures. If you ask me in which field I belong, I could possibly say “education”, but in reality I’m always attempting to maneuver in-between the fields of education, research, journalism/media & game development, trying to bridge the gaps. This is all due to my inability to put things in boxes. I keep seeing possibilities which almost always involves combining knowledge, ideas and experiences from different fields, and I keep arguing about the value of transparency and sharing knowledge.
