Abstract [en]

This study investigates the internet habits of students in the Swedish gymnasium. The part that internet plays in their lives and their attitude towards the educational system is reflected upon the philosophical background that stretches from Kant to postmodern philosophers such as Baudrillard. The aim is to create knowledge about how the social aspects of the internet affects their concepts of reality and their own and others identities. The method used for the collection of empirical data has been semi-structured interviews, preformed with students in a Swedish gymnasium. The data is then interpreted against the theoretical and philosophical background. The results show that the internet has created a new arena for interaction and construction of identity, reality and knowledge among the youths. The results of the study are then put in relation to the Swedish educational system and aims to investigate how education can be put in context to the internet habits of the students.
