Datorprogram i skolmiljö: en utvald grundskola som fallstudie

Abstract [en]

In this thesis I'm trying to investigate how good educational computer programs work in elementary school. I delimited the study to contain one elementary school in the stages of 6 to 9. The method I used was qualitative and the approach was inductive. I interviewed four teachers and five pupils as the way to collect data for the study. The theories I used were parts from different books with authors, which have done similar studies and researches. I also used the elementary school course documentations as theories.

From this study I can tell that the selected school's programs are best suited for background information. The programs are not as good for deeper knowledge. The motivation gets better among pupils when using the programs. The programs for mathematic follow their course documentation better than the programs for the social-oriented subjects do. The interviewed teachers and pupils want more programs, and the ability to use the programs fully (which aren?t possibly today due to some circumstances). This study may be continued in the future to include other schools in Sweden.
