Educare – making research available to the educational practice


Current research of relevance to the educational practice does not reach policy makers and participants in the educational practice to as high a degree as we would like. Therefore, Educare aims to make research available by offering writers of the published articles and position papers to publish a short video presentation of the central aspects of the article as a way to create an interest for the article/paper among participants in the educational practice. Two such examples are Maritha Johansson’s presentation of the central findings in the article she has written together with Bengt-Göran Martinsson on the construction of the new research area: Svenskämnesdidaktik and Shaun Nolan's presentation of his position paper on Visual Thinking Strategies.

No. 1 (2024): Culture on the Move

This special issue consists of five position papers, four articles and two essays covering diverse aspects of the theme Culture on the Move that foregrounds language and literature both as pedagogical tools and disciplinary fields necessary for learning to live and work in a culturally diverse world. The contributions stem from the initial activities within the graduate school “Culturally Empowering Education through Language and Literature” (CuEEd-LL). Centre-staging teaching and learning in Swedish education, the texts in this issue present a range of inroads into how language and literature can be used to support cultural diversity among pupils, students and teachers since cultural diversity is steadily gaining attention both as a resource and a challenge in education and society.
