Abstract [en]

During the past couple of years an extensive restructure towards increased digitization, has affected Swedish schools. Some investments aim towards teachers training, whilst others prioritise hardware. Some intend to transact radical, groundbreaking changes, whilst some care to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) successively in the current education model. The methods for digitization are many and contested. Previous research focuses on investigating what effects digitization has on student learning and how the digitization mission has been interpreted and executed in school context. Teachers and students attitudes towards digitization are too fields that have been explored, though most studies are made outside of Sweden, which causes a certain knowledge gap. Music education in Sweden lacks creative elements, which has been noted in research. According to previous research ICT is also considered missing the most within the creation field. Underlying causes for the slow progress of digitization in Swedish schools however, belong to a less researched field. Initially, this study seeks to chart both in what context and extent music teachers in secondary school tend to use ICT and to investigate if any connections show between ICT usage and personal or workplace related variables. The research questions define which variables that are being investigated by dint of the web-based questionnaire that constitutes the foundation for the research. The result indicates that the informants of younger age us ICT for other purposes than the older ones, to some degree. Some differences in ICT usage between men and women also showed, where women for example tend to search online for teaching inspiration more frequently than men. The result also showed that the music teachers that participated in this study use ICT mostly for simple tasks that support the traditional education, as opposed to more advanced functions that demands a higher level competence, which are used less frequently. As the title reveals, the result also show that the informants experience a lack of reources that affects the prequisites for implementing digitization, in various ways. The most missing resource is according to this study time. The end diskussion of this study report mentions that the question ”how?” ought to be relevant for making the implementation of ICT in school context as smooth as possible.
