My name is Ann S. Michaelsen, and I’m an administrator at Sandvika vgs, a high school in Norway. Sandvika is a high school with 850 students in the age group 16 to 19. The school is situated close to Oslo the capital of  Norway. Sandvika was a new high school in 2006, and we have since the beginning been a 1:1 school. All our students have laptops the wireless connections are available in the whole building.   I was a member of the 2013 Horizon Norway Advisory Board, 2014 Scandinavian Horizon board, and 2014 Horizon Report Europe Advisory Board. In 2012 I wrote the book “Connected Learners: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Global Classroom” with 27 high school students. I spoke at Bett in London 2014 and was recognized by BBC News Technology and BBC Click. The result was an article on BBC News and a team of reporters from BBC Click and BBC school report visited our school, this was aired on BBC world. I was portrayed in the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera in 2014, and project leader for the Norwegian connected educators month. I worked  or the Norwegian exam board making exams suited for the use of the internet during exams in the three English courses offered for High School seniors in Norway. I have written a book for teachers in Norway published by Cappelen Damm in 2015. And Written an article in the book published by Universitetsforlaget aimed at Preservice teachers.
