In the last nine years my main areas have been working with ICT in education, e-learning, social media and mobile learning. I have worked with companies, public administration, organizations and especially with educational institutions - from elementary to higher education.

My previous work experience includes working at the Center of Educational Technology at the City of Tampere and at the Faculty of Education in the University of Tampere. Our unit at the university educated, researched and developed processes for learning, counselling and evaluation in work communities. Personally I specialized in problem-based learning, co-operative learning and learning at work.
