How to guide young students on the Internet in the classroom (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of my study is to look at two specific schools and their work with Internet in the classroom and compare their work to what experts say about how you should educate. The study focuses on how teachers guide the students to be critical to the information they encounter on the internet. What do the experts say? How should the teachers work with Internet in the classroom? What do the teachers say about their work with Internet? What do the teachers say regarding children and the Internet?  To answer these questions I have interviewed two teachers from different schools, which had classes with children 6 to 8 years old. The schools are very different from each other concerning investment on Internet devices in the classroom. I have also interviewed two experts on the subject who are working for organisations concerned with children’s use of the Internet.

I have related my findings to older research, Marc Prensky’s terms Digital Natives and Digital Immigrant are frequently used in the study. I found that the work with and understanding of Internet depended on what generation the teacher belonged to. Older teachers are Digital Immigrants while the younger teachers are Digital Natives who have been brought up with digital media. According to Prensky and other experts it’s important that teachers learn to communicate in the style of their students, and give Internet a place in the classroom. Children are spending much time on the Internet and it’s important, according to the experts, to guide the children and learn them to be critical to the information they come across.
