I am a Professor at the Faculty of Education and International Studies, Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway. My research experience includes ethnographic fieldwork with children and young people. In my research I draw on interdisciplinary approaches focusing on the role of technology in the ecosystems surround children, language issues, marginalization in education, social justice, gender, education and youth. This work has taken a central focus in looking at the way in which education and more specifically teacher education can contribute to providing competencies for democratic participation. I am currently the coordinator of a large-scale European Research project funded by Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 870548) entitled The Impact of Technological Transformations on the Digital Generation (DigiGen).
Inclusion/exclusion in education, teacher education, digital lives of children and young people.
I am a Professor at the Faculty of Education and International Studies, Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway. I have also worked for the University of Cyprus, Greek Open University and Polytechnic University of Hong Kong. My research areas include, among others, testing and assessment, differentiated instruction, multilingualism, lifelong learning and learning difficulties. I use mixed method designs and interdisciplinary approaches to focus on the role and ways of helping teachers and other stakeholders to conduct well-informed, contextualised and efficient learning and assessment environments that help reduce the integration challenges that immigrant, SpLD and all other children and young people experience in different educational environments. I coordinate various research groups, e.g., CBLA SIG – EALTA, EnA OsloMet, I am an expert member of EALTA and have been involved in EU-funded and other research projects (e.g., SCALED, NORHED, KriT, DINGLE, TRIBES, ENRICH, TALE, DysTEFL, PALM, etc)
