CCL’s presentation at Almedalen is now available as film, see below! In Swedish.

 

On July 2, CCL researchers (from left) Magnus Haake, Johan Mårtensson, Agneta Gulz,  Annika Andersson, Viveka Lyberg Åhlander, Birgitta Sahlén and Peter Gärdenfors  presented a talk at Almedalen Week, Visby, on Thinking, talking, learning (Tänka, språka, lära). Lund University’s venue, a small tent with 40 seats, was literally bursting at the seams with people coming to listen – we counted 73 heads at one point. Representatives from schools and the National Association for the hard of hearing (HRF), Ecophon (acoustic solutions) as well as the general public listened and commented and asked questions about CCL’s research. Thank you to all for coming!

Magnus Haake did an excellent job with the slide show presentation, and also filmed the event. See the presentation on youtube!

Birgitta and Peter in a discussion

Viveka Lyberg Åhlander explains how important the teacher's voice is for learning and remembering what you hear. Today' schools are designed to have one teacher talking to a silent, listening classroom, which today is very rarely the case.
