Beata Jungselius became a doctoral student at the Department of Applied Information Technology/The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS) in February 2012. During her doctoral studies, she will be working as part of the University of Gothenburg Learning and Media Technology Studio (LETStudio), in LETStudio 3 and the MobSoMe project. The research activities within LETStudio 3 are focused on the ways that young people participate and develop literacy with current new-media ecologies.
Her PhD project is focused on how people use mobile technologies and social media as part of their everyday life. She is currently working with examining how people use mobile technologies and social media to document and share their informal learing experiences in cultural institutions, and has conducted studies at the Natural History Museum in Gothenburg where she studied how museum visitors use the social photo sharing application Instagram. A paper including results from this ethnografic fieldwork, will be presented at the 2013 ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in Paris this spring.
