Abstract [en]

In this study, the aim is to find out how teachers and students perceive the computer as a writing tool in the teachingof the Swedish language. The research questions of the survey, seeksto find answers to what teachers look for opportunities and obstacles with the computer as a writing tool, and for what purpose they use the computer. I also want to find outstudentsthoughtsabout the computer as awriting tool and how they believethe computer can help them in their writing. The study is based on a qualitative approach with qualitative semi-structured interviews. Inthe student interviews, I have used 11 pupils from Year 1-5. In the interviews, I have used the same interview guide in order to produce comparable data. In the teacher interviews, I have used the idea map as interview method. My selection of teachers resulted in three active, workingteachers from primary school to secondary school.Broadly, the inquiry resulted in that the computer is very important for the students' text development as it is believed to increase the motivation of students. According to the result that there are obstacles such as digital literacy, lack of technology and resources that can cause problems. The informants were also disagreed on what age that the computer should be introduced as a writing tool in school, but they all agree that it is a beneficial tool in writing instruction as long as the purposewell thought out.
