About Thomas Hillman

Thomas Hillman is Associate Professor of information technology and learning. With a background in the design of products and environments for learning, his research investigates the ongoing reconfiguration of technology for learning in both formal and informal settings with a focus on the mutually constitutive relationship between the development of technologies and the transformation of epistemic practices. Thomas' work to understand the role of tools in learning processes draws on sociocultural perspectives on learning, interaction and development, and on sociomaterial ways of conceptualizing the relationship between technology and use.

Having completed a study of the development and use of a graphing calculator for mathematical learning during his doctoral studies at the University of Ottawa, Thomas moved to the University of Gothenburg where he completed a Swedish Research Council funded postdoc. In recent years, Thomas has expanded the scope of his work to include diverse learning settings with an emerging focus on the blurring boundaries between online and offline activities in many aspects of contemporary life. Much of his research relies on extensive use of video-recordings and digital records of the ways people interact with technologies and Thomas works to adapt and develop methods and tools for gaining access to and making sense of these activities.

Current research projects:

  • Mobile-technologies and social-media in cultural institutions, investigates the use of mobile social media by visitors to cultural institutions such as museums, science centres and zoos as they engage and create particularly through photo and video practices.
  • Taking science to the crowd: Researchers, programmers and volunteer contributors transforming science online, examines the ways that laypeople become involved in large scientific projects through digital technologies.
  • Emerging communities of professional development for IT in schools: Teachers’ engagement in the flipped-classroom movement.
