Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

I work currently as a university researcher in the Technology in Education Research Group at the University of Helsinki. I am also a partner and pedagogical expert in a small company Heuristica Oy. From the year 2020, I have been a partner and CSO in TeamFluent Oy, which is a spin-out company of the University of Helsinki. My background is in general psychology and computer science with an extensive experience of consultation and teacher training in the educational use of ICT for over 30 years. I have published several articles, book chapters and reports nationally and internationally. My doctoral thesis (2010) focussed on teachers' practices in scaffolding and organizing students' technology-enhanced collaborative inquiry. I have participated in large national (Educational technology projects of Helsinki and Espoo cities, OPTEK, ProWo, CLiC, ARONI, Opettajana virtuaaliluokassa, dLearn.Helsinki) and international (Netd@ys, ITCOLE, P2P, Celebrate, Ernist, KP-Lab, FICTUP, Linked, KNORK, HEFSESE, HEI ICI PARFORM, DETECT) research and development projects concerning the use of technology at schools and universities. My research interests:

  • Evaluating pedagogical design solutions in implementing collaborative inquiry and knowledge creation practices in schools and universities.
  • Designing pedagogical infrastructures for collaborative inquiry and knowledge practices in educational settings; see my doctoral thesis.
  • Pedagogy for building students’ knowledge work and global competencies.
  • Modelling and evaluating the features and practices of innovative, progressive school in multiple levels.
  • Expertise of teachers in pedagogical usage of ICT.
