Our research covers phenomena such as the use of digital tools in the classroom, leisure time and everyday life. The technology development is rapid, and it is difficult at all times to say what is relevant to research and which technologies will appear in the near future. It is therefore important to have a broad approach to the field and employ a variety of analytical tools for such research.

Research in the field of digital learning arenas can be understood in several ways, either as an interdisciplinary / multidisciplinary field, such as the use of tools or as a complex interaction with technology. Regardless of what understanding one assumes, research in the field must relate to the technological artefacts that are brought into the field of practice, as well as to changed ways of working and communication.
Methodically, we apply both qualitative and quantitative approaches. The practices are often exploratory or experimental.
