  • To ulike utdanninger for skolens mellomtrinn. Er det samsvar mellom planverk og praksislæreres erfaringer med studentenes kompetanser på 1-7 og 5-10 utdanningene?

  • Teachers’ Experience in the Subject of Food and Health and the Promotion of Health in Norwegian Lower Secondary Schools 

    Øvrebø, Else Marie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02)
    This study describes the teachers' experiences and views regarding the extent to which the subject food and health promotes health in lower secondary schools. The teachers wish to build their teaching on the pupils’ assumptions and references, but they find this problematical because they have little or no knowledge of their pupils. In addition to support from the homes, the teachers point to ...

  • Enhancing the understanding of clinically meaningful results: A clinical research perspective 

    Nordahl-Hansen, Anders; Øien, Roald A; Volkmar, Fred R.; Shic, Frederick; Cicchetti, Domenic V. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-31)
    Published research often address aspects related to “statistical significance” but fail to address the clinical and practical importance and meaning of results. Our main objectives in this article are to investigate the merit of common measures of Effect Size in statistical research and to highlight the importance of the simple Relative Risk ratio. In this article we present data where we consider ...
  • Sex- and sex hormone-related variations in energy-metabolic frontal brain asymmetries: A magnetic resonance spectroscopy study 

    Hjelmervik, Helene; Hausmann, Markus; Craven, Alexander R.; Hirnstein, Marco; Hugdahl, Kenneth; Specht, Karsten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-31)
    Creatine is a key regulator of brain energy homeostasis, and well-balanced creatine metabolism is central in healthy brain functioning. Still, the variability of brain creatine metabolism is largely unattended in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) research. In the human brain, marginal sex differences in creatine levels have been found in the prefrontal cortex. It is however not known to ...
  • Samarbeid om tiltak ved bekymring for elever i skolen 

    Haugen, Vivian D. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Alle lærere som jobber i skolen opplever fra tid til annen bekymring for elever som av en eller annen grunn ikke greier å tilpasse seg klassen på en hensiktsmessig måte, eller som ikke utvikler seg i den retning en forventer. Det kan være flere forhold som kan bekymre en lærer. Utgangspunktet kan være at eleven tilkjennegir små og ganske diffuse signaler i form av tiltagende utagering eller at ...
  • What happens when a climber falls? Young climbers mathematise a climbing situation 

    Fyhn, Anne Birgitte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-01)
    Students in Norway and other countries experience vectors as a difficult topic. Four young skilled climbers, who all did well in mathematics at school, participated in the Vector Study (VS). They participated for free and each lesson lasted until the students decided it was over. The idea was to investigate how climbing may function as a basis for students’ development of a vector concept. The ...
  • Profesjonalitet i arbeidet med tidlig innsats 

    Haugen, Vivian D. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    På 2000-tallet kom tidlig innsats inn i som pedagogisk begrep i Norge og er i dag et sentralt begrep i den pedagogiske hverdagen i barnehage og skole. Tidlig innsats skal være et virkemiddel for å forebygge eller minimalisere vansker hos barn og bidra til sosial utjevning for på sikt å hindre frafall i videregående skole og å havne utenfor i arbeidslivet. I artikkelen diskuteres om pedagogens ...
  • The functional and structural asymmetries of the superior temporal sulcus 

    Specht, Karsten; Wigglesworth, Philip (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-22)
    The superior temporal sulcus (STS) is an anatomical structure that increasingly interests researchers. This structure appears to receive multisensory input and is involved in several perceptual and cognitive core functions, such as speech perception, audiovisual integration, (biological) motion processing and theory of mind capacities. In addition, the superior temporal sulcus is not only one of the ...

    I denne studien ønsket vi å undersøke hvordan innføring av studentaktive læringsformer i seminarundervisningen påvirket det faglige læringsutbyttet og klassemiljøet i STEM-fag (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Et randomisert kontrollert studie ble gjennomført i seminarundervisningen i to innføringsemner i fysikk og kjemi ved UiT Norges arktiske universitet. I emnene fulgte ...
  • The interaction between teacher educators and their students on the use of educational technology: Similarities and differences of attitudes, skills, and practice across a generational change 

    Thorvaldsen, Steinar; Madsen, Siri Sollied (Conference object; Konferansebidrag; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018-10)
    <p>Norway has been exposed to a stronger top-down implementation of ICT in education than most other countries. The pervasive change in Norwegian school curriculum has consequently resulted in changes in Norwegian initial teacher education. National plans have emphasized digital competence as one of the basic competencies that teacher educators and student teachers are required to focus on during ...
  • How different national strategies of implementing digital technology can affect teacher educators. A comparative study of teacher education in Norway and New Zealand 

    Madsen, Siri Sollied; Archard, Sara; Thorvaldsen, Steinar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-10)
    Over ten years have passed since Norwegian educational reform implemented the use of digital tools as a required basic skill in all subjects and at all levels of Norwegian schools. However, government surveys show that there is still a significant gap between the intention of educational policies and what is actually practiced in Norwegian education. This gap has often been attributed to practitioners’ ...

    This article is part of a research project aimed to broaden the understanding of the established gap between policies regarding the use of digital technology and the actual use of digital technology in Norway. To understand this gap we have conducted a comparative study between teacher education in Norway and teacher education in New Zealand, two countries with quite different approaches to implementing ...
