Tablets impact on mathematics teaching : Teachers’ experiences of teaching with tablets (English)
Abstract [sv]

Undersökningens syfte är att undersöka hur lärare med en-till-en surfplattor har påverkats i sin matematikundervisning i årskurserna 1-3. Ett ytterligare syfte är också att visa vilka hinder och möjligheter som de upplever med surfplattor. Den empiriska utgångspunkten har varit kvalitativa intervjuer med åtta verksamma lärare i matematikämnet som har tillgång till en-till-en undervisning. Ruthvens (2009; 2013) studie har använts som ramverk för denna studie.

Resultatet visar att lärarna har påverkats i sin undervisning av surfplattorna avseende faktorer som färdighetsträning, motivation, individualisering, variation av undervisningen, kunskapsöversikt samt i uppläsningen av uppgifter. De upplevde vid införandet såväl som i det dagliga arbetet både hinder och möjligheter. Framförallt tog införandet tid medan flera av respondenterna uppger att det dagliga arbetet efter ett tag underlättades och mer tid kunde avsättas till att möta eleverna på deras kunskapsnivå. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the research is to examine how 1:1 with tablets have affected teachers’ teaching in mathematics in grade 1-3. Another purpose with the research is to demonstrate what possibilities and obstacles may occur with tablets according to participants in the study. The empirical data collection method is qualitative interviews conducted with eight active teachers with access to one-to-one education. Ruthvens (2009; 2013) studies have been used as framework for the research.

The results show that teachers have been affected in their teaching with tablets in such ways as increased motivation, skill training in mathematics, individualization, variety of teaching, overview of students’ knowledge and the ability to listen to tasks and overcoming difficulties such as reading and writing. With the introduction of 1:1 the teachers experienced both obstacles and possibilities in their teaching. Especially the obstacle concerning the time it took to implement. The teachers state that the daily work was facilitated after some time and they could spend more time teaching children at their level of knowledge.
