More about the project
The graduate school Learning, interacting, and knowing in a digitalised world (LIKED) is a joint national venture involving nine Swedish universities. LIKED rests on the assumption that the digitalization of society results in challenges and opportunities for learning and education that call for transformations – from current to future practices.
Digital technologies cannot merely be understood as providing access to new resources for learning, interacting, and knowing, they provide new dimensions. The ongoing digitalization processes in society creates a situation in which not only students but citizens at large need competences for handling everyday life that differ from those in pre-digital times.
LIKED will address issues in relation to how the digitalization of society will change the conditions for teaching and learning in education at large, as activities intended to provide competences for handling everyday life in a digitalized society, how these competences can be described, analysed, and understood in terms of learning, interaction, and knowing in a digitalized world. LIKED will have the role of being a research environment of high scientific quality. The participating universities will collaborate to provide courses based on their expertises in the field, such as various research methods, different theoretical perspectives, analysis tools and design issues in research.
The project is part of the research in the Computational Thinking and Coding Skills in Schools (CoCoS) research group and the Linnaeus Knowledge Environment Digital Transformations.
