    En organisation för stor för sin egna kompetens: En kvalitativ forskningsstudie på polismyndigheten Värmlands internkommunikation2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis treats the subject of internal communication. We have chosen to carry through a research about the police department of Värmland's internal communication since they have big responsibility to preserve safety and security in society. The police department has these days greater demands regarding how to conduct dialogue and the level of communication within the organization to further the efficiency of police work. The main purpose of this bachelor thesis is to obtain insight about the internal communication functions and how it is presented from the managers as well as the employees perspective. In this thesis we are using relevant theories regarding organizational communication, internal communication, organization identity, organization culture and communication models. Our approach to answer the purpose of this thesis was to use two customized questions to enable us to get a overall view and a deeper insight of our chosen theoretical framework.

    “How do the managers perceive the internal communication in the police department of Värmland?”

    “How do the employees perceive the internal communication in the police department of Värmland?”

    In this study we used qualitative interviews and a qualitative focus group. The result we obtained, showed that, internal communication with the chosen managers and the employees had both positive and negative experiences. The police department of Värmland's internal communication has gone through a positive development according to the managers. According to the managers, the police department of Värmland has a healthy working environment that offers good possibilities for dialogue between management and employees, and also clear guidelines for how the internal communication has to be conducted. However, there is room for improvement, since some experience it to be hard to communicate information that filters wrongly and creates misunderstanding. But the employees gave us a completely different picture since the daily work characterized in injustice, faulty internal communication that creates confusion and difficulties to get an overview about who has what responsibilities in the organization.

    Politisk fragmentering på grund av Facebooks filtrering: En studie om hur Facebook rekommenderar innehåll beroende på politiska preferenser2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about Facebook’s role in political representation. The goal of the study is to examine the occurrence of filter bubbles on Facebook’s  recommendations-page. This page is called “Like pages” and provides Facebook-users with recommendations of new pages to like and is created by algorithms that take into account personal information of the user, which pages the user has liked earlier, friends on the network and other websites the user has visited. The two latter factors however have been left aside in this study, which focuses instead on personal information and interaction with Facebook-pages.

                          Besides the filter bubble-theory, this paper includes theories about “cyberbalkanization”, “echo chambers” and “selective exposure” in order to explain how information can influence and is influenced by people’s choices on the internet. The results of this research are discussed in the light of the large consequences which information has on internet users and society in general.

                          The experimental part of the study includes the creating of six fictitious Facebook-profiles with help of several statistics, in order to make the profiles as representative as possible. Those profiles then interact with different political pages from Sweden. That has an impact on the recommendations-page, which subsequently is studied with help of a quantitative content analysis to see what content the user gets back, based on her earlier interactions.

                          A central aim of this paper is to understand the global discussion about Facebook’s role as a political influencer in the US-election 2016, which has taken place during the same period of time as this paper has been written. When beginning this research, “filter bubbles” was something that was discussed in science and among media-interested. After the results of the election were final, the discussions about Facebook’s role as a propagator of fake-news culminated and the company was accused to have influenced voters. As a reaction to this, Facebook’s CEO Zuckerberg announced the company will find ways for stopping the distribution of fake-news on Facebook. Those consequences are already visible in this research and possible consequences on a political debate on Facebook are discussed. However, the changes that have been made on Facebook have not been communicated publicly in any way by the company. For this reason this study also discusses problems that can occur studying online-content and makes demands on a higher transparency of how Facebook’s algorithms work.

                          The analysis of the results show that Facebook before the changes has recommended its users pages with political content in a much higher extent than after the change, when the recommendations-page is mainly based on local-fixed Facebook-pages. The authors draw the conclusion that Facebook, before the changes, politicized a political active user, while a political inactive user is not presented for political material in the same extent. Even a filter bubble could be observed, based on block-political preferences of the user. The authors agree upon that the changes, Facebook made will have an impact on Facebook’s role as a political forum. Even if this study only focuses on the recommendations-page on Facebook, the changes that Facebook made can make Facebook to a less political platform and potentially affect the democracy in Sweden and all around the world.

    The role of media in fostering citizen engagement: A case study on the communication tactics of the Let’s Do It! movement2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A wide use of social media and the development of digital communication channels have changed the game in grassroots activism. Embracing those new ways of communication gives a way to new forms of activism and raises questions about media’s shifting role in the sphere of social movements and collective action. The general aim of this study was to map the role of media in the Let’s Do It! (LDI) movement that fights against illegal waste by organizing clean-up campaigns and by building awareness about the problem among the general public. The purpose was to find out what role media plays in the mobilization of clean-up actions; in communicating with the whole LDI movement and in sustaining the global network.

    The research questions posed were: What communication channels are used, and how are they used by activists to reach general public and to engage the volunteers when organizing the local and the global clean-up campaigns in the LDI network? What is the value of the global Let’s Do It! network and how is global-local communication organized?

    To find out about the use of communication channels and the purpose of the global network, a web-survey and in-depth interviews with global and local members of Let’s Do It! were conducted. The results show that different communication channels have a different role in the process of coordinating clean-up campaigns and in sustaining the network. Traditional media is important for gaining wider visibility; digital channels of communication, especially social networking platforms, are multifunctional with combining the internal and the external communication; and face-to-face meetings and interpersonal relationships are deemed crucial in forming strong ties and sustaining the network both globally and locally. The actual media use is also strongly influenced by the cultural context and the resources available for the local teams.

    Iskalla maffiasvek: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys om hur organiserad brottslighet gestaltas i svensk nyhetsmedia2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Brott är generellt sett ett område som motsvarar många kriterier för nyhetsvärdering inom journalistiken och ämnet lockar till läsning. När media rapporterar om olika händelser i världen får därför framförallt våldsbrott mycket publicitet. Det finns tidigare forskning som visar att medias frekventa rapportering om brott skapar en obefogad rädsla hos befolkningen.

    Mycket forskning kring brott i media finns både nationellt och internationellt, men denna studie fokuserar på en viss typ av brottslighets plats i media som inte alls är lika utforskat, nämligen organiserad brottslighet. Vi tittar på hur den organiserade brottsligheten gestaltas i svensk nyhetsmedia, vilka skillnader det finns i rapporteringen av denna typ av brott i jämförelse med annan kriminalitet, samt om rapporteringen i morgonpress och kvällspress skiljer sig från varandra.

    Undersökningen gjordes genom en kvantitativ innehållsanalys på 200 artiklar. Hälften av dessa var publicerade i Dagens Nyheter och Svenska Dagbladet som representerar morgonpress medan den andra hälften hämtats från Aftonbladet och Expressen som i undersökningen representerar kvällspress. Artiklarna är också uppdelade där 100 stycken behandlar organiserad brottslighet och de resterande 100 annan typ av kriminalitet. Undersökningen visade att rapporteringen om de olika typerna av brott skiljer sig. Organiserad brottslighet får mer fysisk plats i tidningarna då de i fler fall finns med bilder. Denna typ av kriminalitet framställs som ett större hot/risk än annan brottslighet, händelser gestaltas mer förstorat, och bilderna i dessa artiklar förstärker ofta en hotfull känsla. Organiserad brottslighet gestaltas som farligare än annan brottslighet. Vi såg utöver detta också skillnader i de olika typerna av press. Kvällspress skriver på ett mer förstorat sätt om organiserad brottslighet än vad morgonpress gör, vilket i denna studie innebär att de använder fler ord som endast finns där i syfte att förstärka olika känslor. Kvällspress använder sig också mer av bilder för att befästa de känslorna artikeln ska förmedla.

    Med stöd av dagordningsteorin, nyhetsvärdering och nyhetsurval, gestaltningsteorin samt kriminaljournalistik har vi utefter våra resultat analyserat och diskuterat vår forskningsfråga. Vi förstår varför organiserad brottslighet får mycket plats då den uppfyller kriterier för att skapa mediedramaturgi, men anser att det kan vara problematiskt då media med hjälp av sin gestaltning kan skapa en obefogad oro och rädsla bland publiken. Detta påverkar inte bara individen utan även samhället i stort eftersom människors bild av den kriminella världen kanske inte stämmer överens med verkligheten. Eftersom detta kan ge effekt på hela samhället anser vi att studien är relevant för makthavare i landet och Polismyndigheten.

    Under denna studie har det framgått att forskning om organiserad brottslighet är begränsad. Det finns dåligt med statistik och fakta om denna typ av brott och vi ser gärna att man i framtiden forskar vidare i fältet. Som påbyggnad av detta finns det inte heller mycket forskning att hitta om organiserad brottslighet i förhållande till media. Detta saknas framförallt i svensk forskning och vi skulle gärna se framtida svenska forskare fördjupa sig mer i detta område, till exempel genom en liknande studie, med ett större empiriskt material, för att få en ännu bättre bild av gestaltningen av organiserad brottslighet i media.

    Abstract [en]

    Indian culture, dispensed through colorful musicals of Bollywood, remains a common thread of emotional connection for the Indian diaspora spread around the globe in more than 100 countries. Indo-Fijian diaspora, unlike its counterpart in the developed nations where Indians migrated of their own choice, and often hold white collar jobs, is formed of a varied group that almost replicates India in the range of jobs they hold. Despite that similarity, old Indian diaspora remains missing from the Bollywood content that it consumes. This article, through data collected in the Fiji Islands, illustrates the concrete practices that  Indo-Fijians engage in to access, and experience Bollywood

    Mobilizing the Public at Multiple Levels : A Case Study of Satyamev Jayate2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Launched in May of 2012, Satyamev Jayate (‘Only the truth triumphs’), is the most researched talk show focussing on current issues that has come to Indian audiences since TV’s introduction to the Indian society.  Apart from being anchored by a popular filmstar, Aamir Khan, and covering some topics that have not been given due attention in the news or popular media, the show is aired simultaneously in five languages.  Each of the episodes has sparked a nation wide discussion on topics overlooked by the mass media, except in the form of coverage in print media. 

     

    However, Satyamev Jayate has combined several factors that have given a new avatar to the ‘old mass medium’ making us reconsider its power to bring about social change.

     

    This paper analyzes the strategies used by the show to inform, educate, and validate –by interviewing victims, social activists and experts. Building upon the previous work of the author on mobilizing information, the paper extends the argument and definition of what ‘mobilizing information’ can imply and how an ‘old medium’ is still very relevant in bringing attention to social issues, and generating a public discourse.  The concept of mobilizing context, embedded in the format and aim of the show, is introduced, and the first episode is content analyzed to illustrate how the show, very efficiently, utilizes language, appeals, and various interactive features to involve the public.

    Categories of Conceptions in Karlstad Community Classrooms: An analysis of educator interviews regarding new media technologies as teaching tools2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Från höstterminstarten 2011 har alla nya elever inom de kommunala gymnasieskolorna i Karlstad och Hammarö tillgång till en egen dator, en satsning som brukar gå under beteckningen en-till-en. Denna situation öppnar för en möjlighet att studera hur denna tekniska förändring också påverkar lärares upplevelse av teknikskiftet och hur lärarna uppfattar att tekniken förändrar skolvardagen. Under december 2011 intervjuades 47 lärare i engelska (du skriver rätt antal) utifrån en gemensam intervjuguide med öppna frågor kring erfarenheter, strategier och åsikter om hur det är att arbeta i klasser som omfattades av en-till-en-satsningen. Syftet med studien var att kategorisera lärarnas uppfattningar och hur de erfar denna nya situation; detta då med hjälp av en fenomenografisk analysmetod. Studien tar sin utgångspunkt i ett sociokulturellt perspektiv där lärandet ingår i en social kommunikativ process. Resultatet av analysen pekar mot att det går att dela in lärarnas syn på den nya situationen i tre huvudkategorier; erfarenhet av fenomen genom jämförelse; undervisning strategier i förhållande till fenomenet; fenomen i praktik.

    Elevers foton i sociala medier från klassrummet: Om skrivandet och lärandet kan stärkas genom elevers egna fotografier och genom användning av sociala medier2011In: Elevers foton i sociala medier från klassrummet: Om skrivandet och lärandet kan stärkas genom elevers egna fotografier och genom användning av sociala medier, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 2010/11 genomför jag ett forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt runt sociala medier ifyra klasser i årskurs 4 (tioåringar) i Karlstad kommun med stöd från Internetfonden,Karlstads universitet och Åbo Akademi i Vasa. Sociala medier i detta sammanhang är enpublik klassblogg i var klass och Skype som direktkommunikationsverktyg mellan olikasvenskspråkiga klasser i flera länder.Den första erfarenheten i detta projekt var att barn i den aktuella åldern behöver egnabilder och framförallt foton för att kunna kommunicera över nätet. Utan bilder blir ocksåbarns berättelser kring skolarbetet ointressanta för andra att läsa; det här vet barnen.Med bilder och inte minst fotografier, skapas nyfikenhet, och fotografierna blir också ettbevis på äkthet; vi har träffat den här personen, det här är den första blåsippan eller detvar just Anna som här vann löpartävlingen. Med kameran som redskap skapas en nyberättarresurs, samtidigt som fotograferandet i sig kräver en egen kompetens.Frågeställningarna i detta forskningsprojekt handlar om hur elever ser på sin egentextproduktion, i vid bemärkelse, när mottagaren finns utanför klassrummet. Genomstödet från Internetfonden kunde kameror köpas in under mars 2011 och på detta sätthoppas jag att den övergripande frågeställningen kan både breddas och fördjupas till attomfatta flera olika yttryckssätt. Projektet är således i ett mycket tidigt stadium och idetta konferensbidrag kommer jag endast att kunna ge några exempel på hurkamerorna använts i klassbloggen. Utifrån dessa exempel för jag teoretiska resonemangkring hur barns egna foton på en publik klassblogg kan påverka undervisningen ochelevernas upplevelse av skolarbetet. Projektet undersöker således hur dessamultimodala uttryckssätt påverkar barns förmåga till berättande och hur dessa estetiskasätt att uttrycka sig på påverkar intresset för läsning och skrivning – och även omvänt.

    Social media and the boundless classroom: A multimodal design theoretical perspective on young students’ use of blogs and digital cameras in their school work2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will, from a multimodal perspective, examine how social media maychange the relationship between students' own-produced texts and the schoolsubject that is studied. I will also discuss some empirical observations from learningsettings and argue that use of photographic practices combined with the publishingof students’ school work in social media stimulates students' written textproduction.With the introduction of user friendly and cheap digital cameras in the classroom,together with computers, the opportunities for students to combine their ownphotos with written text, changes drastically. From multimodal and designtheoretical perspective, school work can be seen as text production (in the widestsense) and a transformation of others texts and students’ own experiences to newforms of text, a process that also involves a performance where the student'sknowledge is reflected. With the class blogs and wikis students are able to showtheir work for an audience that not share all the knowledge and experiencesdescribed in the text; something that otherwise usually is the case in a classroomwhen the text is submitted to the teacher.

    Social media in the classroom: Different perspectives on young students’ use of blogs and digital cameras in their school work2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will, from a multimodal perspective, examine how social media maychange the relationship between students' own-produced texts and the schoolsubject that is studied. I will also discuss some empirical observations from learningsettings and argue that use of photographic practices combined with the publishingof students’ school work in social media stimulates students' written textproduction. This way to create multimodal texts, also changes the language, awayfrom the facts list, and in favour of narrative.With the introduction of user friendly and cheap digital cameras in the classroom,together with computers, the opportunities for students to combine their ownphotos with written text, changes drastically. From multimodal and designtheoretical perspective, school work can be seen as text production (in the widestsense) and a transformation of others texts and students’ own experiences to newforms of text, a process that also involves a performance where the student'sknowledge is reflected.

    Sociala medier och naturvetenskaplig undervisning: Om hur faktatextskrivandet och den naturvetenskaplig undervisning kan stärkas genom elevers egna fotografier och genom användning av sociala medier2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 2010/11 genomför jag ett forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt kring socialamedier i fyra klasser i årskurs 4 (= 10-åringar) i Karlstad; en publik klassblogg i varklass och Skype som direktkommunikationsverktyg mellan olika svenskspråkigaklasser i flera länder. Frågeställningarna i detta projekt kretsar kring hur elever ser påsin egen textproduktion när mottagaren av skolarbetet finns utanför klassrummet;på nätet. Projektet undersöker också hur en kombination av elevers egna fotografieroch skrivna texter påverkar barns berättarförmåga. Till projektet har jag kunnatanskaffa kameror och mikroskop men USB-kamera och avsikten med detta är att geeleverna fler sätt att kommunicera och utveckla sitt berättande på, inte minst inomnaturvetenskap. Frågan som ställs här är om sociala medier, i kombination medfotograferande, kan användas i undervisning om naturvetenskap och vad som i så fallär skillnaden mellan detta sätt att producera texter och redovisa sina kunskaper ijämförelse med den traditionella undervisningen.

    Wiping out the White board in China2010In: Abstracts: Active Citizenship : NERA's 38th Congress, Malmö: Malmö Högskola , 2010, p. 68-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    To have class room lessons in mathematics over the Internet in Göteborg and Shanghai at the same time.Online classrooms and distance education have been developed and discussed a lot during the last ten years; i.e. online lectures from one teacher to a group of distance students. But connecting two classrooms with each other on a regular basis through video conferencing and programs like Skype, are more of an exception. The question is why. After all, this technique has been around for a while; it is easy and works rather well even over rather poor conditions.A teacher in mathematics in Göteborg and her high school class has on a monthly basis a couple of lessons together with a high school class on the same level in Shanghai in China and she has taken the Skype technique a bit further. Today she works with a SmartBoard solution, where these electronic whiteboards are simultaneously updated, in China and in Sweden, together with sound and video connection with Skype and text messages on MSN. Between the lessons the students keep in touch with each other through MSN and e-mail.This poster will describe one of these events with photos together with interviews with students and teachers; hopefully on both ends. One part of the poster will conclude pros and cons, possibilities and problems and ask questions about what other advantages such a cooperation between class rooms can have apart from a deeper mathematical knowledge.

    Learning design when the classroom goes online2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract

    The Internet is increasingly being used by educators and educational institutions not only for information seeking, but also for communication and publishing students work. This paper explores how this can affect the learning situation and how we can understand the difference between an assignment carried out by a student and which is handed over directly, and only, to the teacher, compared to something that will be published and public on the net.

    The Learning Design Sequence developed by Selander (2008) has been used as an analytical tool when analyzing 5 examples from schools using web 2.0. Not having the teacher as the only addressee for a school assignment changes the value of the work and opens up for further development of knowledge, and we argue that the Selander model in some cases can be extended, when the classroom goes on line.

    Organisationsstruktur och internkommunikation efter en omorganisation: En fallstudie om Karlstads universitet2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a case study which investigated the perceived consequences of the organizational change that was implemented in January 2013 at Karlstad University. The study aimed to explore the experiences of the employees concerning the changes in organizational structure and internal communication. This was done through a set of eight individual standardized qualitative interviews with members from different departments. A lot of effort and thought was given to the ethical implications and to create a comfortable and open climate during the actual interviews to ensure that the respondents felt free to speak openly and honestly about their personal opinions and experiences.

    It is evident that the overall vision was ambitious; aiming to create a more effective organization through cutting off excessive administrative personnel and streamlining decision paths. However according to the opinions of the respondents it was clear that the result was far from the desired goal. Essentially, efficiency was only achieved at the top level. Previous administrative tasks have been moved to new members and a major uncertainty has arisen. A critical reason for the failure was the lack of communication during the organizational change, which created lots of antagonism from the employees. The management was unsuccessful in making the members feel involved in the decision making, and a lack of transparency was apparent. The hopes of a transparent organization were then high after the change, but proved to turn out quite the contrary. Decision referrals have failed to reach the employees until after the final decision has been made. The decision paths are not considered to be more effective amongst the departments and a massive dissatisfaction has emerged since employees no longer can make their own decision on matters that involve them. This involves for example shaping their own syllabi, something which they were fully capable and successful in doing before the change. A massive micromanagement has thus been created, and it is not deemed adapted to the organization as a whole. This has created an impression amongst the members that they are no longer trusted or considered competent. The merging of departments has not been successful either. Some combinations are not considered logical and the desire to break new grounds has not been achieved. The old department groups instead appear to have grown stronger, and not the cooperation in-between them, not even within the newly combined departments. One reason for this may be that the idea and hope of increasing cooperation across department borders was a desire from the management, and not the departments themselves. Thus, there is uncertainty both in the current leadership structure and internal communication. The members are lacking proper instructions on how communication should pass both up and down. Therefore they desire more distinct guidelines and an explicit division of responsibilities. The conclusion is therefore unambiguous; improved effectiveness has only been achieved in the top layers of the organization, and not facilitated work or improved the situation of the employees. This consequence is pitiful at an organization such as a university with concurrent research, which definitely possesses the knowledge and competences within both organizational structures and internal communication. Conclusively, they have not managed in successfully converting their internal assets from theory to action.

    Key words: internal communication, organizational change, organizational structure

    Sticky Tweets: Decoding Social Contagion Traces Between Politicians and Other Users on Twitter2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study observes and discusses online interactions realized between political actors and other users accounts during an electoral campaign. The aim of this study is to decode social contagion traces of messages shared by Turkish leading politicians and political parties with their online audiences, using asymmetrical social media website Twitter. Both quantity and content of politicians’ messages are representative of their political campaigns reflecting to social media and voters who use the same tools as them can also express retaliation towards their communication. In this study, like behavior on Twitter is identified as representative of appreciation and retweet behavior is identified as representative of adoption of an idea in relation to social contagion theory. The objective is to find out, compare and analyze voters’ behaviors towards different kind of messages according to their quantity and content nature. By this study, it will be possible to answer some questions; such as how much interaction is generated on Twitter by chosen political accounts, are voters getting into more interaction with positive or negative affirmations, which are the main subjects that voters are getting into more interaction and what are the tendency of voters to show appreciation or adoption of ideas on Twitter during the pre-election phase in Turkey.
