Abstract [en]

Our 21st century students are a generation who are growing up in the digital age. As a result, through daily usage, their technological competence is developing rapidly. As their educators it is important to be aware of this crucial fact. The aim of this study is to investigate how pupils can be involved in integrating the use of digital technology skills in the art classroom and learn from each other in the process. The key questions are: How do pupils respond to a peer learning art project? Can a peer learning art project be a good way to integrate IT into the art classroom? In order to find answers to these questions, three observations during various stages in their art project were carried out. In addition, structured interviews with each of the pupils and the responsible teacher were conducted. The results showed that although the pupils were unfamiliar with being asked to organise, collaborate and present their group project, they learnt how to work together to achieve their goal and found it a positive experience. The results also showed that, if the project is designed carefully, IT can be integrated successfully into the art classroom using a peer learning project.
