Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to increase the understanding of digitization in school. More specifically it investigates the use of digital tools implemented in teaching activities. The study also aims to find out what opportunities digital use gives rise to in the role of primary school teachers and how digital progress has influenced the professional role. The three formulated questions that characterize the study are; “How do primary school teachers use digital tools in their professional activities?”, “To what extent do primary school teachers use digital tools in their professional activities?”, “What possible and changed ways of working have digital tools given rise in the professional education of primary school teachers?”. The empirical study is based on 63 questionnaires completed by primary school teachers in Uppsala County, which is the selection for this study. The theoretical framework consists of Engeströms activity theory, which is based on the socio-cultural perspective of learning founded by Vygotskij. The study is also based on previous research concerning the digitization of schools, including the digital tools as aids and digital literacy.

 

The result shows that the digital tools characterize the profession as a primary school teacher and that these tools have come to play a major role in teaching. The digital tools are used to a very large extent every day and have brought in many opportunities and also contributed to changed working methods in school. The result also shows that the digital tools can have negative effects, but most of the digital tools are seen as an asset.
