Teknikens betydelse i en lärande miljö : Datoranvändandets betydelse i undervisningen för elever i åk 7 i en Stockholmsförort
We live in a society that is constantly developing and where technology is getting a more major roll. The school is a very important part of our society and should therefore develop in pace with the surrounding society. Having this in our thoughts we decided that our purpose for this case study should be to study the importance of technology in a learning environment for seventh graders in a specific school. To be able to find this out, we have used constructivism and sociocultural perspective on learning. We have gathered our empirical data for the study through participant observations and a focus group interview. We have also taken part of prior researches on the matter of the importance of computer using for the pupils learning. The results that have been presented are contradictory. The conclusion of our case study is that the use of computers is meaningful for the students participating in this case study. However the interest and knowledge of the pedagogue for technology affects the extent of using it in the classroom. Another important factor for the significance of computers in teaching is how the computers are placed in the school and in the classroom.
