The way in which students perceive their learningsituation is the starting point for a successful learning process in school, aswell as the starting point for individualized teaching. The study´s aim was todescribe the findings from a group of students at a secondary special schoolwho use a tablet as a tool in learning situations. The study is based onqualitative methods with focus group interviews and research underpinning thecollated data. The study connects students´ perceptions with the conceptsmediated artifacts, motivation and availability to clarify students´ experiencesin different situations. The results shows that the tablet is a flexible toolwhere the possibilities for personalization are great if there is knowledgeabout how, when and for what purpose it will be used. Students express bothinterest and a good understanding of the use of the tablet as a tool, but theyalso experience the obstacle of inaccessibility, depending on how much tabletuse the teacher allows during lessons. Research shows that students withintellectual disabilities feel stimulation from the use of the tablet as atool. This is useful in special educational contexts where the focus is onproviding students with the right conditions to acquire and develop skills.
