and schooling in the modern society. This school offers courses
that give the participants a thorough background for studying learning in its various manifestations in contemporary society.
An explicit purpose is to offer theoretical and methodological
skills relevant for the study of human learning and the
development of competences at various levels of inquiry: from
the psychological level to comparative studies of educational
systems and educational performance in an international

that digital technology plays both in the transformation of
how people learn in various settings and in terms of the role
technology can play in supporting learning activities.
