Session Description

To be announced

Bio:

A forerunner of the research on playful learning pedagogy in Finland, and a co-developer of a playful learning environment, an innovative play and game-based learning environment designed for 21st-century education. The dissertation The School of the Future: Theoretical and Pedagogical Approaches for Creative and Playful Learning Environments (Kangas, 2010), was rewarded by Lea Pulkkinen Award in 2012.

My research has mainly focused on understanding teaching and learning processes in various learning contexts, especially on the use of play, games, and digital tools in 21st-century education. Playful learning, students’ and teachers’ agency, digital media literacies and competencies, out-of-school practices, and creative collaboration have been at the core of my research interests. The research includes topics from early childhood to adult education.

I have worked in many multidisciplinary research teams and research projects funded by European Social Fund, Business Finland, Ministry of Education or Finnish National Agency for Education
