Teachers' visions of Technology : A questionnaire study of teachers' ideas about technology in the middle school. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att få en inblick i hur lärare på mellanstadiet arbetar med teknikämnet i skolan. Detta görs genom en enkät, vars frågor är upplagda efter tre frågeställningar: Vilka tankar har lärarna om teknik? Hur ser pedagogernas teknikundervisning ut? Vilket undervisningsmaterial använder lärarna sig av i teknikämnet? Totalt är det 65 lärare som arbetar eller har arbetat med teknik på mellanstadiet som deltagit i studien. Enkäten har visat på att de flesta lärarna som deltagit tycker att teknikämnet är ett roligt, spännande och intressant ämne som dock är svår bedömt, tids- och materialkrävande. Undersökningen visar även att de flesta lärarna tycker det är bäst att arbeta med teori och praktik varvat, då båda delarna behövs för att eleverna skall förstå teknikens innebörd i samhället

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to gain insight into how teachers at Middle Schools in Sweden (grade 4-6) carry out their teaching of the compulsory school subject technology. This was accomplished through an online survey, which was divided into three sections based on the following three research questions: What thoughts do the teachers have of technology? How do the teachers carry out their teaching of technology? What materials do the teachers use in their teaching of technology? All in all 65 teachers, who currently teach or previously have taught technology at Middle Schools, have participated in the survey. The result reveals that most of the teachers involved find technology to be a fun, exciting and interesting subject, but that it is difficult to evaluate and grade the students, and also time and resource consuming. The study also shows that most of the teachers prefer a variety of theoretical and practical activities, since both elements are required to give the students an understanding of the importance and significance of technology in our society.
