socio-cultural perspectives on learning and cognition, pedagogy, technology enhanced learning and training environments

Robert Ramberg got his PhD in cognitive psychology at the department of psychology, Stockholm University and holds a position as professor at the department of computer- and systems sciences, Stockholm University (SU). Ramberg also holds a position as research director at the Swedish Defense Research Agency doing research on flight simulation and training. He has published numerous articles in journals and refereed conferences. He has served as program committee and editorial board member for several international conferences as well as acted as reviewer for several international journals within the field of technology enhanced learning and collaboration.

Of particular interest to his research are socio-cultural perspectives on learning and cognition, pedagogy and how these theories must be adapted when designing and evaluating technology enhanced learning and training environments. And more specifically how artifacts of various kinds (information technology and other tools) mediate human action, collaboration and learning.

Current projects include research into mobile learning: PLACES - Purposeful Learning Across Collaborative Educational Spaces, mVisible - design and evaluation of outdoor and indoor learning lessons and the bridging of these across contexts, and collaboration within interaction design - A study on the role of representational artifacts and actions in interaction design: Sketching as an embodied practice.Ramberg is also active within the field of cognitive science (the Center for cognitive science and information technology, the Swedish national graduate school for cognitive science - SweCog).
