Digital tools for learning in upper secondary school : Students with additional adjustments describe their experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att utforska erfarenheter kring användandet av digitala verktyg hos gymnasieelever som får extra anpassningar beträffande språk-, läs- och skrivlärande. Metoden som använts är kvalitativa intervjuer med fyra gymnasieelever, och som teoretisk ansats utgår studien från ett sociokulturellt perspektiv på lärande. Utifrån syfte och frågeställningar presenteras resultatet av intervjuerna i form av fyra teman som samtliga handlar om digitala verktyg i undervisningen. Dessa är specialpedagogiskt stöd i grundskolan, bevis på att vara annorlunda, pedagogiskt och specialpedagogiskt redskap samt för- och nackdelar.

Resultatet i studien visar att eleverna under sin grundskoletid inte fått tillräckligt med specialpedagogiskt stöd. Bristen har bland annat inneburit avsaknad av digital teknik, vilken hade kunnat ge stöd i att kompensera för elevernas läs- och skrivsvårigheter. I gymnasieundervisningen använder man däremot aktivt digitala verktyg för lärande. Dock saknas kunnig vägledning av dessa verktyg i klassrummet, varpå eleverna måste gå till en specialpedagog för att få hjälp och stöd. Sammantaget visar resultatet att eleverna upplever att skrivandet har påverkats positivt av användandet av digitala verktyg, men att det behövs ökad kompetens hos lärare beträffande elever med extra anpassningar i svenskämnet.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore the experiences in the use of digital tools in upper secondary school by students who receive additional adjustments regarding language and literacy learning. The method used is qualitative interviews with four students, and the theoretical base of the study is a socio-cultural perspective of learning. Based on the aim and the questions at issue, the results of the interviews are presented in the form of four common themes, concerning digital tools for learning. These are special education support in primary school, proof of being different, special education and educational tools, and also advantages and disadvantages.

The results of the study show that students have not received enough special education in elementary school. The shortage has, among other things, led to the absence of digital technology, which could have provided support to compensate for students' reading and writing difficulties. In upper secondary school, active digital tools for learning are used. However, there is a lack of expert guidance of these tools in the classroom, whereupon the students have to go to a special education teacher for help and support. Overall, the results show that the students feel that writing has been positively influenced by the use of digital tools, but that teachers need a higher degree of competence to deal with students with additional adjustments in the Swedish courses.
