Thoghts about Talking Books : a student perspective on Legimus (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att ur ett elevperspektiv undersöka vilka hinder samt möjligheter som kan identifieras i elevers användande av talböcker samt att få en uppfattning om hur elever uppfattar lärares attityd och kompetens inom detta område. Den metod som jag använt är enkäter som besvarats av elever i åk 4-9 som har ett Legimuskonto. Resultatet av enkätsvaren redovisas som tabeller och diagram samt genom redovisning av ett representativt urval av citat från respondenternas svar. Resultatet tolkas utifrån ett sociokulturellt perspektiv (Vygotskij, 2001) samt utifrån en teori om stigmatisering (Goffman, 2014). Sammanfattningsvis visar resultaten att respondenterna i denna studie till största delen är positivt inställda till att använda talböcker. De menar att talböcker gör det lättare att förstå texter och ger dem möjlighet att uppleva spännande böcker som de annars hade haft svårt att läsa. Att kunna läsa samma böcker som sina klasskamrater ansågs också som en viktig aspekt. Trots den i grunden positiva inställningen hos flertalet respondenter framkom ett antal negativa faktorer såsom bristen på inlevelse hos inläsaren, att det är pinsamt att använda talböcker samt att de uppfattar det som att deras lärare tycker att fysiska böcker är bättre. Då det gäller hur respondenterna uppfattar lärares attityd och kompetens inom detta område visar resultaten på stora variationer.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyze the obstacles and possibilities that can be identified in students’ use of Talking Books and to get a sense of how students perceive teachers' attitudes and skills in this area. The method I used was a questionnaire answered by students in grade 4-9 that has a Legimus account. The result of the questionnaire is presented in tables and diagrams as well as a representative selection of quotes from the respondents. The results are interpreted based on a socio-cultural perspective (Vygotskij, 2001) as well as a theory of stigmatization (Goffman, 2014). In summary, the results show that respondents in this study for the most part are in favour of using Talking Books. They allege that Talking Books make it easier to understand texts and give them the opportunity to experience exciting books that they otherwise would have difficulty reading. Being able to read the same books as their classmates was also considered an important aspect. Despite the positive attitude of the majority of respondents, a number of negative factors was identified, such as the lack of expression in the reciter, the feeling that it is embarrassing to use Talking Books and the sense that their teacher thinks printed books are a better option. When it comes to how respondents perceive teachers’ attitudes and skills within the field, the results show great variations.
