Research focus

Digital technologies have the potential to support learning about the ocean, as they virtually can take the learners into the depth of the ocean and help them visualize complex interactions between different factors over time and space. My research, grounded in the sociocultural perspective on learning, investigates and scrutinizes the opportunities and challenges associated with how digital technologies can support communication and learning of environmental skills associated with the ocean.
