Abstract [en]

This study looks at how six teachers work with English grammar with and without the use of ICT. The aim is to investigate how teachers use ICT in English grammar and compare it with a more traditional approach. The primary source of the case study is interviews conducted with five secondary teachers and one primary teacher in southern Sweden. The teachers work in three different schools with different approaches to ICT. One school has been using ICT for three years, the second school has recently started using it and the third school does not use ICT in English grammar teaching at all. The teachers’ experiences and thoughts on grammar teaching and on ICT are presented and discussed. The results show that only one of the teachers has a sound understanding of how to integrate ICT in English grammar teaching. All interviewed teachers are positive towards the use of ICT but most of them are not aware of the resources available or how to organise the teaching to make use of ICT in the best way. More and more Swedish schools provide laptops for all their pupils but it is clear that the teachers need more training to use ICT in English grammar teaching successfully.
