Abstract [en]

In this case study, I gathered information with regards to their attitudes to digitalization and digital teaching materials from a small group of language teachers at a school in the south of Sweden. As a teacher to be, my aim was to explore how digitalization and digital teaching materials have changed the opportunities for education and learning for language teachers and students. I intentionally kept my questions wide to learn about the kind of environment I am about to enter and need to be prepared for. As a result, by having undertaken this survey the findings should help me pre-empt different situations, problems and opportunities I am about to encounter. In general, when talking about digital teaching materials, the boundaries between hardware, software, digital teaching materials, the internet and IT-platforms appear vague. Therefore, as they also complement each other, I have chosen to use the term “digitalization” to unify these five components mentioned above.

The results summarize reflections and attitudes of how and in what way digitization has changed the conditions in the classroom for teaching and learning, as well as views on its advantages and disadvantages. The analysis of the results focus on three areas; hardware, software and digitalization including digital teaching materials. The theme of digitalization has been analyzed with the influence of a SWOT analysis which then generates the conclusions, in which the SWOT analysis is commented upon and supplemented with my own reflections and possible developmental scenarios for future improved study results.
