Research projects (ongoing):

  • AI in Schools: Challenges, Opportunities, and Shared Strategies to Promote Democratic Education.

This research project aims to explore the impact of access to generative AI on teaching and assessment, and how school actors can navigate this change through collaborative and evidence-based professional development. The project is conducted in partnership with 13 school units across five municipalities, with a total of 72 participants including principals, teachers, special educational need teachers, and pedagogical developers. The inclusion of diverse professional groups recognizes the need for comprehensive understanding, formulation, and support of professional development and school digitalization strategies across various levels within municipal operations to ensure relevance and viability. - Commissioned by the Swedish government as a ULF initiative

In this project, the project aims to generate findings on the relationship among policy, practice and in/equality through its theoretical understanding of (‘vital’, ‘resource’ and ‘existential’) inequality, its methods (long-term participant observation, interviews to understand stakeholders’ perspectives and digital methods) and its focus on a range of international contexts. The project aims to investigate whether, how, and why the use of digital technology in education can help reduce socio-economic inequality. The project investigates six countries in three global regions: Latin America (Argentina, Mexico), Southern Africa (Botswana, South Africa) and Northern/Central Europe (Germany, Sweden). In the project, the InfraReveal tool has been developed, which aims at revealing and visualizing the hidden infrastructure of data packet flows that are generated while users access the internet (www.infrareveal.net).

The aim is to develop new understanding of how to increase the agency of teachers concerning the design and use of AI-based systems in education to ensure fairness. The project is affiliated to the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program – Humanities and Society (WASP-HS). The project is based on the premise that the involvement of practitioners is important to successful development of new technological solutions for the workplace. The research is conducted in collaboration with principals, pedagogical developers, teachers, and students in secondary schools across five municipalities in Sweden. - Financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond
