May we use the iPad? : How students can be motivated to work with mathematics with the help of digital tools (English)
Abstract [sv]

För att ge lärare på fritidshemmet ökad kunskap kring hur arbetet med digitala verktyg kan se ut, har iPads använts i denna studie för att öka motivationen till matematik bland elever på fritidshemmet. Studien grundar sig i en aktionsforskningsansats och en aktion har genomförts på ett fritidshem. Aktionen har inneburit en workshop med sju matematiska appar, samt en testperiod under fem veckor där eleverna fått möjlighet att arbeta med apparna. Fyra fritidslärare har intervjuats, två gånger var. Sammanlagt åtta intervjuer har genomförts, fyra nulägesintervjuer före aktionen och fyra utvärderingsintervjuer efter aktionen. De fyra fritidslärarna som intervjuats medverkar i aktionsforskningen och intervjuerna är genomförda på det fritidshem där aktionsforskningen utförs. Samtliga lärare arbetar på det fritidshem där studien genomförts. Aktionsforskningen resulterade i ökade frivilliga matematiska aktiviteter på fritidshemmet bland eleverna samt ett en ökad kunskap och trygghet bland fritidslärarna om hur användandet av digitala verktyg kan se ut.

Abstract [en]

To give teachers in after-school programs increased knowledge about activities involving digital tools, this study is using iPads to increase students’ motivation to work with mathematics in the after-school program. The study is based on action research and an action has been made in an after-school program. In this action, a workshop, involving seven mathematical apps, has been made, and during a test period of five weeks, the students had the opportunity to work with the apps. Four after-school teachers have been interviewed, two times each. A total of eight interviews have been made, four interviews to analyse the present situation before the action and four interviews to analyse the outcome of the action. The four teachers, being interviewed, is included in the action research and the interviews are being carried out in the after-school program where the action research takes place. All the teachers are working in the after-school program where this research has been made. The action research resulted in increased volunteered mathematical activities among the students. The research also resulted in increased knowledge and confidence among the teachers about the using of digital tools in education.
