Teachers and students' choice and use of digital tools and resources – a matter of co-design

PhD project My future research will focus on student's meaning-making based on digital tools and resources and the meaning potential different resources have and the affordance pupils learning will yield.

In a close-up perspective on meaning-making, how teaching can be created digitally and how the role of the teachers and students as co-designers, can mould and create implications for teacher and student practice and application design. One of the many challenges regarding digitalization in schools today is the close-up perspective on the meaning of different resources and its usage for meaning-making, and how the usage can contribute to development on different levels. In a social semiotic multimodal perspective, there are theories that can constitute scope for further investigation of these perspectives and Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Furthermore, accessibility will to provide a comprehensive framework.
