I am happy to announce we, Professor Linda Mannila (University of Helsinki), me, Professor Peter Parnes (LTU) and Charlotta Hilli (Åbo Akademi) received a grant from the Swedish Research Council (VR) for establishing a Nordic Network for AI in Educacation (NordicEdAI – ett nordiskt tvärvetenskapligt nätverk kring AI inom utbildningen)
I am a guest editor together with professor Staffan Selander for a special issue on “The Digitalized K-12 Classroom in the Age of AI, Analytics and IoT” published in Education Sciences.
Happy to announce that we were granted a four-year project (7MSEK) by the Marianne and Marcus Wallenbergs foundation to explore how AI can be used to support young children’s learning.
PI: Professor Torkel Klingberg (KI), Co-applicant (me).
I am glad to co-chair a track on learning analytics in digital environments together with Mohammad Khalil, University of Bergen (Norway) and Jacqueline Wong, Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands) at the 5th International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education that will take place in China in autumn. Its a great opportunity to explore how Chinese academics have developed research within the field of learning analytics!

Två studier utförda de senaste två veckorna kring påtvingad omställning till distansundervisning på grund av covid-19. Den första studien fokuserade på hur lärare i grundskola och gymnasium implementerat eller planerat implementering av distansundervisning i samband med covid-19. En rapport skrevs som går att hitta här: https://www.ifous.se/ifous-tipsar/
I den andra studien undersökte vi hur studenter på universitet upplever omställningen till distansundervisning. Rapport publiceras inom kort.
We got a paper accepted to LAK 2020 (10th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference) which will take place in Frankurt.

Super excited, we got funding for a 4-year project from Vetenskapsrådet (Swedish Research Council) to conduct research on learning analytics and the application of machine learning in educational settings!
I participated together with Nina Bergdahl in the CROSSMMLA workshop (http://crossmmla.org/) at EC-TEL 2019 with our workshop paper: The use of multimodal learning analytics and sensors for capturing engagement and disengagement in school.
We received the best paper award for our paper presented at the International Conference of Education, Training and Informatics. See reference below.
