Jeppe Bundsgaard is professor of ICT in Education at Department of Education, Aarhus University, Denmark. His main areas of research is 21st Century skills and project and scenario based education.
Jeppe Bundsgaard has participated in developing several practice scaffolding interactive platforms to support K-12 students’ work in scenarios as for example journalists, advisory engineers, textbook authors, and dedicated members of the community. These experiences and research in instructional design, scenario based education and progressive education has led him to outline the foundations for a visual design language for development and activation of collaborative learning designs, called Collaborative Learning Modeling Language (ColeML).
In the area of curriculum development and assessment he is focusing on 21st Century Skills. He has written several articles on methods for developing and designing 21st Century Curricula, focusing on information literacy, critical language awareness, faceless communication and multimodal communication. He participated in designing the new competence based National Standards for the Danish Language Arts subject. He is National Research Coordinator in the international study of students’ computer and information literacy (ICILS 2013 & 2018), and at the moment he is analyzing data from a large scale computer based interactive assessment of students’ 21st Century Skills, which he has designed and carried through in Denmark.
Having worked in the area of progressive education for a number of years it has become clear that progressive education is not an easy thing to propagate in a traditional school system. Therefore his work to a larger extent has focused on implementation and dissimination. This is among other things the objective of the Demonstration School Projects he is heading. The Demonstration School Projects intend to work in school wide, close-to-practice, technology rich development processes supporting teachers moving in a more progressive direction. The projects are financed by the Danish Ministry of Education.
He got his PhD from the Danish University of Education in 2005, and was a visiting scholar at Stanford H-Star Institute in 2008.
