Abstract [sv]

Allt fler skolor satsar på digitalisering och köper in egna datorer till eleverna. I samband med detta ställs det krav på eleverna att de skall kunna hantera tekniken och vara digitalt komp-etenta. Digital kompetens ses som en viktig del för elever att besitta och för att fungera i vårt samhällsliv. Detta är dock ingenting som skolan vi studerat främjar då de inte bidrar till en ökad digital kompetens hos eleverna. Det finns forskare som däremot anser att det är i skolan som eleverna bör få sin digitala kompetens. Forskning som genomförts inom digital komp-etens hos elever har visat att det dels finns en variation bland eleverna samtidigt som annan forskning har visat att elevers kompetensnivå anses vara allmänt låg när de ska utföra komp-lexa uppgifter. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka gymnasieelevers digitala kompetens inom ordbehandling.

Studien har utförts på en gymnasieskola där vi har gjort en enkätundersökning. Enkäten delades ut till samtliga klasser och elever i årskurs tre. Dessutom har vi genomfört en fokusgruppsintervju. Resultatet av enkäten visade att eleverna har grundläggande kunskaper och färdigheter inom ordbehandlingsprogram. Resultatet av fokusgruppsintervjun visade att eleverna använder datorn främst till att skriva uppsatser och att eleverna inte har fått någon större utbildning för användning av deras datorer. Den enda datorutbildningen som skolan erbjudit har skett i början av årskurs ett vid skolstart när eleverna fick sina egna datorer.

Abstract [en]

More and more schools are investing in digitization and buy their own computers to students. In this correlation, it required the students to manage the technology and be digitally com-petent. Digital competence is seen as an important part for students to have and to function in our society. However, this is nothing schools we studied promotes as they do not contribute to an increase digital literacy of students. Some researchers, however, believe that it is the school that students should receive their digital skills. Research conducted within the digital compe-tence of students have shown that the coexistence of a variety among the students while other research has shown that students' skill level is considered to be generally low when to perform complex tasks. The purpose of this study is to investigate high school students' digital comp-etence in word processing.

The study was performed at a high school where we have had a survey which was distributed to all classes and students in grade three and a focus group interview. The survey results showed that students have basic knowledge and skills in word processing. The results of the focus group interview showed that students use the computer mainly to write essays and

that students have not had any major training for the use of their computers. The only computer training school offered occurred at the beginning of first grade when they start school when students got their own computers.
