About Annika Lantz-Andersson

Research interests

Annika Lantz-Andersson is Professor in Education and her research is rooted in sociohistorical traditions with a dialogic focus on social interaction, the use of digital technologies and their implications for learning and teaching. She has been involved in several research projects concerning young peoples’ participation and learning in contemporary media ecologies. Her interest is motivated by the expansive digitization implying that children have access to digital texts and tools from an early age, which raises questions about what these changes on a general level mean for their literacy development and learning. This interest has also involved young peoples’ interaction and socialization in social media arenas and the implications for learning in these contexts. Currently, Annika has directed her research towards teachers’ professional digital competence, and one of the latest research project has had a specific focus on teachers’ professional learning by means of discussions in social media groups, outside common structures and school organizations.

Annika defended her thesis in May 2009, with the title:"Framing in educational practices: Learning activity, digital technology and the logic of situated action". She was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015 and to Professor in 2019. Currently Annika runs two research projects focusing on teachers' professional digital competence, of which one is funded by The Swedish Research Council and the other by the ULF.
