The theme for this important educational conference, held in the Swedish Conference Centre in Gothenburg on 30 and 31 October, was “Hur gör man?” or “How can we do it?” It was jointly organised by Gothenburg University and the educational publishers and course organisers, Tidningen Skolbarn / Förskoletidningen / Fortbildning AB. The original intention was to bring together important Swedish educators, Storyline and the exciting international work of the Harvard-based Project Zero from America. Unfortunately, flight insurance difficulties prevented the American presenters from travelling. In the circumstances the organisers did a very effective re-designing of the programme which certainly seemed to attract the interest of the 800 delegates.
Storyline had two slots, presented by Steve Bell, on the second day of the programme, the first dealing with Storyline Practice and the second on Storyline, Feelings and Respect.
The presentations were supported by a colourful exhibition of Storyline work by pupils of Skarpnäcks skolan, Stockholm, presented by Mait Adegård and Anita Olsson.
Knut Aage Teigen of Ringstabekk skolen in Oslo, Norway, made a PowerPoint presentation of Storyline work undertaken by his students. Knut also made a formal presentation about the work being done in this interesting school as part of the re-designed programme.
