PhD Dissertation 

Högström takes part in the Connected Classrooms Nordic (CCN) longitudinal study, which explores the quality of Nordic teaching in relation to digitalisation of education. Within this framework, based on classroom video recordings and focus group discussions, Högström is interested to examine questions that look at students’ activities, such as agency, in the classroom.
