In the research project ARK&APP (2013–2015) 12 qualitative case studies are conducted. The teacher’s choice and use of teaching and learning resources, as well as the students’ choice of learning resources are central to the project. The case studies highlight how teaching and learning resources are used in specific learning trajectories, by emphasizing their role in student-teacher interaction and how they foster student engagement and learning. Three research questions have guided the analyses in the 12 case reports:

  • How are educational resources used in teaching practices?
  • What role do various educational resources play in interactions between students and their teacher?
  • How do educational resources foster engagement and learning among students?
