I am since 1999 professor of education at University of Gothenburg. From 1993 until 2003 I was serving as adjunct professor of pedagogical information science at University of Bergen. I have also been research manager at Center for IT and Education at Karlstad University and acting professor in Communication Studies at Linköping University. Between 1996 and 2003 I was advisor to the vice-chancellor on IT. I am co-director of LinCS - The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society - and heading the research group LKIT - Learning, Knowing and IT - which is situated both at the IT-university and the Faculty of Education.
My general research interest is how uses of information and communication technologies (ICT) changes the conditions for knowing and learning in contemporary society, how ICT transforms educational practices and teaching and learning within these practices and how learning tools, environments and infrastructures can be designed to enhance teaching and learning in specific subject matter domains. I also have an interest in how learning and development takes place across institutional boundaries, especially digital and mathematical literacies. Current research interests include:
