IT & Learning, ICT4D, eGovernment
My major areas of research are eGovernment, IT & learning and Information- and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D). During the last years I have been working in two e-learning projects in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and at the moment I am involved in a large IT & Learning project in Sweden called UnosUno. UnosUnos is a research project that between 2010 and 2013 will analyze the effects of the one-laptop-one-student-project in 25 Swedish schools. I am also a PhD-supervisor in the research school “Technology mediated knowledge processes in higher education and working life”. This school is jointly run by Örebro University and Högskolan Dalarna. The use of technologies in a learning context is thus my major expertise. My thesis aimed at increasing the understanding of how technology can be used to support students’ change of learning practices when moving from a 'traditional' classroom to e-learning. In my thesis I used Structuration Theory to explore the enactment of different educational structures and currently I am working with an Action Research approach.
I am also working as an associate editor for the top-ranking journal in the field of ICT4D - Information Technologies for Development. I am assigned as reviewer for Information Technologies for Development, Information Technologies & International Development, The Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries, IFIP 9.4, SIGGlobDev and CAIS.
