Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch


This paper present some reflections on an on-going research project, entitled “Welfare technology, Innovation, Care and Learning”. The project has a dual ambition. Firstly to develop a theoretical framework that enable educators of future welfare professionals in Denmark to examine what it means to be ‘welfare technological literate’ – both generally as well as within specific welfare professions. Secondly to support the development of a helpful educational framework that enables students to develop welfare technological literacy. This paper discusses some difficulties and preliminary findings of the project.
