I run my own company Digismart, with tasks involving public speaking, strategic work and research. I also run projects, write books and debate questions related to society, technology and everybody’s equal rights. My customers include schools, municipalities and other private and public organisations.
I have always wanted to make the world a better place. I want everybody to feel included and be involved in our society – today, tomorrow and in the future. As part of this vision I and Anna Sell founded the nonprofit Make It Finland, with the mission to provide digital competence for all.
I received my PhD in 2009 and have a long and extensive background in scientific and empirical research and evaluation. Currently I work as a project researcher at Aalto University in Espoo, Finland and as a visiting lecturer at Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden. My research is close to practice and focuses on digital competence, programming and making at K-12 level, both from a teacher and student perspective.
