This study represents the first research effort to explore the transition from traditional teaching into crisis-prompted distance education in Swedish schools enforced by covid-19. Governments made gradual decisions to impede the spread of the pandemic in 2020. The enactment of new measures affected critical societal functions and included travel r...

It is well-recognised that engagement is critical for learning and school success. Engagement (and disengagement) are, however, also influenced by context. Thus, as digital technologies add complexity to the educational context, they influence classroom leadership, lesson designs and related practices, and thereby engagement. Despite being critical...

Engagemang och motivation är distinkta fenomen, men ändå ofta begrepp som används överlappande eller synonymt. Trots att lärares uppfattning av elevers engagemang influerar både hur lärare interagerar med eleverna och elevers betyg, har vi lite kunskap om hur lärare förstår och ser på elevers engagemang, i synnerhet när lärande sker online. Denna s...

It can be challenging for teachers to engage students online; to know whether students are engaged or not. Online engagement can be perceived differently than in-class engagement. Research has shown that teacher perceptions of student engagement affect how they interact with students as well as students' grades. It is critical to understand how tea...
Conference Paper
The past years have triggered the established blended learning format to develop into other kinds of online teaching formats, with, for example, combinations of a/synchronous learning with more flexible (co-)location requirements for teachers and students. This has led to a renewed exploration of ways to ensure accessible and life-long learning thr...

In Sweden, upper secondary school teachers made a swift transition into emergency remote teaching due to the outbreak of covid-19 in 2020. This paper reports on a design-based research intervention in which professional development was designed using the Adaptation of Blended Learning framework to meet the new requirements of online schooling. Twen...

This study represents the first research effort to explore the transition from traditional teaching into distance teaching in Swedish schools enforced by covid-19. Governments made gradual and injudicious decisions to impede the spread of the pandemic (covid-19) in 2020. The enactment of new measures affected critical societal functions and include...

Parent involvement in and engagement with children's learning, play an important role in influencing schoolchildren's engagement, achievement, and school completion; this became even more crucial during the COVID-19 pandemic that swept the world in early 2020. Given the paucity of research exploring parental attitudes to and experiences of blended...

In Sweden, upper secondary school teachers made a swift transition into distance education due to the outbreak of covid-19 in March 2020. While many reports have surveyed the initial shift, little is known of emerging practices and persisting challenges a year after the outbreak. This design-based research intervention designed for professional dev...

Learning Analytics (LA) approaches in Blended Learning (BL) research is becoming an established field. In the light of previous critiqued toward LA for not being grounded in theory, the General Data Protection and a renewed focus on individuals’ integrity, this review aims to explore the use of theories, the methodological and analytic approaches i...

Student engagement is critical for learning. However, little is known about engagement and disengagement and particular social groups. Recent research has alerted that engagement in technology-enhanced learning (TEL) settings may manifest differently than engagement in analogue learning settings. This study explores how different social groups of u...

Utbrottet av Corona (covid-19) under vårvintern 2020, och konsekvenserna av det för olika samhällsfunktioner, kom oväntat och hastigt i Sverige. Flyg ställdes in, och inom kort stängde flera länder sina gränser. Italien var det land i Europa som drabbades hårdast först. Människor uppmanades att stanna hemma. Skolor hade stängts runt om i Europa, oc...

With the digitalisation of education increasing, the relationship between student engagement in Technology-enhanced Learning (TEL) and digital skills has remained largely unexplored. There is a strong consensus that engagement is necessary for students to succeed in school. We hypothesised that students reporting high and low levels of general enga...

Stu­dents need to en­gage in or­der to learn. As dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion changes the con­di­tions for learn­ing, it is es­sen­tial to con­sider how stu­dent en­gage­ment might be af­fected. This study ex­plores the re­la­tion­ship be­tween stu­dent en­gage­ment (and dis­en­gage­ment) in tech­nol­ogy-en­hanced learn­ing (TEL) and aca­d­e­mic out­comes....

Student engagement is significantly related to both retention and learning outcome. Hence, teachers need to take into account how their practices affect student engagement. The purpose of this study was to explore how teachers and researchers collaboratively could develop learning activities with learning technologies (LTs) to increase engagement,...
Conference Paper
Student engagement is significantly related to school success. With the increasing digitalisation of education, it is essential to explore if student engagement is affected by the uptake of learning technologies (LTs). The aim of this study was to approach what factors students perceive to influence their engagement when learning with technologies....

As digitalisation spreads in education, it is vital to understand its relation to student engagement. We used student diaries and observation data to approach student engagement and explore the use of learning technologies on a lesson-to-lesson basis. Results show that a less thought-through use of technologies might lead to unconsidered effects. P...

Project
The purpose is to explore designs for engagement across different online learning formats (synchronous and asynchronous) with three focus areas: 1. through the perspective of how to collate and analyse broader-scale qualitative observations of learning, 2. designs for engagement, and 3. digital competencies in relation to designs for online learning.
Project
* To map the emerging literature on teaching and learning in K-12 during the pandemic. * To highlight key research gaps. * To provide recommendations for K-12 education policy, practice and research. If you have published empirical research on teaching and learning in schools during the COVID-19 pandemic, please feel free to share it for inclusion in a living review.
Project
This project aims to uncover parent attitudes towards, and perceptions of, the use of educational technology for their child(ren)'s learning during the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. The major aims of this project are: • to explore parent attitudes and perceptions of educational technology use during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how parent engagement with children’s learning is affected; • to understand the kinds of educational technology used before and during lockdown; • to gain an insight into the kinds of learning activities being undertaken with educational technology, as well as how parents are assisting students to use educational technology.
