    In the current study, we address calls for research on the complex nature of integrations of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) components. This is a multiple case study of six middle-school pre-service teachers (PSTs) as they taught science in their school practicum. We investigated the nature of PSTs’ integration between knowledge of students’ understanding (KSU) and instructional strategies ...
  • Are Teacher Students’ Deep Learning and Critical Thinking at Risk of Being Limited in Digital Learning Environments? 

    Madsen, Siri Sollied; Thorvaldsen, Steinar; Sollied, Sissel (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021-03-04)
    The 21st century is quite different from the 20th in regard to the skills people need for work, citizenship, and self-actualisation. Proficiency in the 21st century differs primarily due to the emergence of sophisticated information and communication technologies. In this chapter, we will discuss whether teaching students are sufficiently prepared regarding the need for 21st century skills and ...
  • Forandringsspil: Om tangram, kalejdoskop og gådespil i H.C. Andersens “Sneedronningen” 

    Bartnæs, Morten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
    Denne artikel er en intertekstuelt og intermedialt orienteret læsning af “Sneedronningen”, hvor to af eventyrets kendetegn - dets modulære opbygning og dets spil med variationer - bliver set i lyset af samtidens debat om legetøjet tangram og kalejdoskop. Via sin tematisering af forestillinger om tom, uorganisk forandring placerer eventyret sig i den debat. Denne tilgang til teksten lægger vægt på ...

    Haugen, Vivian D. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-14)
    Artikkelen belyser holdninger til barn med særskilte behov blant studenter i barnehagelærerutdanningen. Ved hjelp av et eksperimentelt design er det undersøkt om studentene utvikler mer positive holdninger til barn med særskilte behov fra de starter studiet til de avslutter studiet. Resultatene viser en signifikant økning i positiv holdning i løpet av studiet. Denne økningen er uavhengig av studentenes ...
  • Bullying Victimization and Trauma 

    Idsoe, Thormod; Vaillancourt, T; Dyregrov, Atle; Hagen, Kristine Amlund; Ogden, Terje; Nærde, Ane (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-14)
    Bullying victimization and trauma research traditions operate quite separately. Hence, it is unclear from the literature whether bullying victimization should be considered as a form of interpersonal trauma. We review studies that connect bullying victimization with symptoms of PTSD, and in doing so, demonstrate that a conceptual understanding of the consequences of childhood bullying needs to be ...
  • Use of touchscreen technology by 0–3-year-old children: Parents’ practices and perspectives in Norway, Portugal and Japan 

    Dardanou, Maria; Unstad, Torstein; Brito, Rita; Dias, Patricia; Fotakopoulou, Olga; Sakata, Yoko; O'Connor, Jane (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-05)
    This paper discusses findings from online surveys completed by parents of 0–3-year-old children in Norway, Portugal and Japan concerning their young children’s use of touchscreen technology. The study investigated parental practices, views and perspectives related to children’s digital practices and explored these in relation to wider cultural discourses around early childhood in the participant ...
  • Pedagogical Translanguaging to Create Sustainable Minority Language Practices in Kindergarten 

    Kleemann, Carola (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-24)
    The coastal areas of Finnmark have deep Sámi roots. With the Norwegian assimilation policy—Norwegianization—the transition to the Norwegian language has been extensive here, placing the region outside Sámi core areas. Nevertheless, indigenous Sea Sámi identity still exists, and language vitalization and raising awareness of culture are shown in Sámi institution building. Within these frames, ...
  • Functional Outcomes of Children Identified Early in the Developmental Period as at Risk for ASD Utilizing the The Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) 

    Stenberg, Nina; Schjølberg, Synnve; Shic, Frederick; Volkmar, Fred R.; Øyen, Anne-Siri; Bresnahan, Michaeline; Svendsen, Britt Kveim; Tetzchner, Stephen von; Thronæs, Nina Torheim; Macari, Suzanne; Cicchetti, Domenic V.; Chawarska, Katarzyna; Suren, Pål; Øien, Roald A (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-18)
    Early identification of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is regarded as crucial for swift access to early intervention and, subsequently, better outcomes later in life. However, current instruments miss large proportions of children who later go on to be diagnosed with ASD, raising a question of what these instruments measure. The present study utilized data from the Norwegian Mother, Father, and Child ...
  • A cross-cultural exploration of early childhood educators’ beliefs and experiences around the use of touchscreen technologies with children under 3 years of age 

    Fotakopoulou, Olga; Hatzigianni, Maria; Dardanou, Maria; Unstad, Torstein; O'Connor, Jane (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-11)
    This paper will discuss the beliefs and experiences of early childhood educators across three countries, England, Norway and Greece, in relation to the use of touchscreen technology with the youngest children in their settings. Building on previous research which explored parents’ perspectives, this study now extends the investigation to early childhood educators who play a key role in children’s ...

    Munkebye, Eli; Scheie, Eldri; Gabrielsen, Anja; Jordet, Arne N. Nikolaisen; Misund, Stig; Nergård, Tone; Øyehaug, Anne Bergliot (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-22)
    Education for sustainable development (ESD) provides crucial opportunities for young people to be involved in complex sustainability issues. This study contributes to existing knowledge about primary school teachers’ approaches to ESD across a range of subjects. Norwegian schools can join the Sustainable Backpack programme (SBP), which supports teachers to develop projects that promote a holistic ...
  • Understandings and attitudes regarding skill-based and competency-based cultures for learning: a comparative study of Norwegian and New Zealand teacher educators 

    Madsen, Siri Sollied (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-01-24)
    This is a study of Norwegian and New Zealand teacher educators’ attitudes and understandings of what constitutes learning in schools. Excerpts of curriculum differences between the countries were used as catalysts to gain insight into teacher educators’ espoused theories regarding their understanding of learning, using examples of skill-based and competency-based perspectives on learning. This article ...
  • Reduced grey- and white matter volumes due to unilateral hearing loss following treatment for vestibular schwannoma 

    Heggdal, Peder Olaf Laugen; Larsen, Kristina S.; Brännström, Jonas; Aarstad, Hans Jørgen; Specht, Karsten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-03)
    <i>Objective</i> - Previous studies of the consequences of unilateral hearing loss (UHL) on the functional-structural organization of the brain has included subjects with various degrees of UHL. We suggest that the consequences of a total loss of hearing in one ear might differ from those seen in subjects with residual hearing in the affected ear. Thus, the main aim of the present study was to compare ...
  • Northern Genealogies in ‘The Snow Queen’ and Frozen 

    Bartnæs, Morten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-10)
    H. C. Andersen’s ‘The Snow Queen’ (1844) and its self-professed adaptation Frozen (2013) both maintain a combined focus on origins and development. I approach the two texts as narratives that explain aspects of human life by showing how they came into being – as accounts that, although not primarily historical, are still bound up with genealogical ways of thinking: how, and from what beginnings, do ...
  • The nature of posttraumatic nightmares and school functioning in war-affected youth 

    Harb, Gerlinde; Schultz, Jon-Håkon (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-11-25)
    Children and adolescents who have experienced traumatic events demonstrate a variety of posttraumatic symptoms, including recurrent nightmares, as well as adverse reactions in the school setting. The current study examined nightmare symptoms, posttraumatic stress, sleep disturbance, and self- and teacher-reported school functioning of 64 youths in the Gaza Strip, ages 12 to 16, who have lived through ...
  • The optimal platelet concentration in platelet-rich plasma for proliferation of human cells in vitro:diversity, biases, and possible basic experimental principles for further research in the field: A review 

    Straum, Olav Kansgar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-11-13)
    <i>Background</i> - In the last decades, several in vitro studies have tested the effect of plate-rich plasma (PRP) on the proliferation of human cells in search of a wizard for the use of PRP in a clinical setting. However, the literature displays striking differences regarding this question despite the relatively similar experimental design. The aim of this review is twofold: describe and explain ...
  • Lines in the snow; minor paths in the search for early childhood education for planatary wellbeing 

    Myrstad, Anne; Hackett, Abigail; Bartnæs, Pernille Elisabeth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-28)
    This paper explores what place means for early childhood education at a time of global environmental precarity. We draw on fieldwork in Arctic Norway, where kindergarten children spend time with snow for more than half of the year. Children’s movement attunes to the nuances and diversity of the snow, as seasons, temperature, light, wind and weather change the consistency of snow and the possibilities ...
  • Livsmestring i den samiske barnehagen 

    Bjerklund, Monica; Åmot, Ingvild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-28)
    Faktorer som påvirker hvordan miljøet kan fremme barns livsmestring utgjør ofte en kompleks sammenheng. Med utgangspunkt i Antonovskys teorier om opplevelse av sammenheng og salutogenese diskuterer vi betydningsfulle faktorer for at den samiske barnehagen kan fremme livsmestring i sitt pedagogiske arbeid. Vi argumenterer for at disse teoriene kan bidra til en bred forståelse av livs mestring i ...
