iPad as a communicative tool in special education : An interview study of teachers experiences (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to examine how teachers of students with multiple handicaps view the possibility of using iPad as a communicative and supportive tool within special education. Using the qualitative research interview method the attitude towards iPad among teachers was assed. Four teachers who work within special education and daily use both augmentative and alternative communication and iPad in their education were interviewed. The results were analyzed using the sociocultural perspective and show that augmentative and alternative communication is viewed as an artefact that enables communication between students with impaired verbal communication skills. The teachers view the iPad as a powerful complement to the existing educational tools. Finally this study finds that the increased use of iPad as a communication device within special education has increased the independence as well as social interaction among disabled students and also with students in the comprehensive school.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur lärare som arbetar med elever med flerfunktionsnedsättning ser på möjligheten att använda iPad som kommunikationshjälpmedel/ stöd i särskolans undervisning. För att ta reda på lärarens syn på iPad användning i särskolan används som metod den kvalitativa forskningsintervjun. Studien bygger på fyra intervjuer med lärare som arbetar i särskolan och dagligen använder alternativ och kompletterande kommunikation (AKK) och iPad i undervisningen. Studien använder det sociokulturella perspektivet som teoretisk utgångspunkt. Resultatet visar att alternativ och kompletterande kommunikation är ett verktyg som möjliggör kommunikationen för elever med talsvårigheter. iPaden upplevs av deltagarna som ett bra komplement till de befintliga läromedlen. När lärarna använder iPad som ett kommunikationshjälpmedel/ stöd i särskolan ser de hos eleverna en ökad självständighet samt ökat socialt samspel även med andra grundskoleelever.
