Abstract [en]

The essay is a discourse analysis of the media's attitudes toward computing. The aim is to compare what the media is really saying about the usage of tablets, computers and compare it to what the research is saying. In addition, it examines what the media says about socialization. We analyze the newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Expressen and will first compare these two together and see what attitudes that emerge, and then seek similarities and differences with the previous research and theories including socialization learning, attitudes and consumption. Conclusions we can draw is that Expressen has a more negative attitude towards the use of computers while the Dagens Nyheter has a more positive attitude, but is also more objective to what they write about. The research writing a more positive attitude to mainly surf boards within the school as a teaching tool, but is not as positive for high computer use during leisure time, as it may cause health problems or socialization disorders. The media write more articles critical of tablets in schools, because they claim that these are detrimental to learning. Expressen urge that the computer should be used only at home. Joint research and the media is how they write about the effects of computer usage, but the differences lies in how they describe that the personal and social development is affected by computers and tablet use.
