Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this action research study was to investigate how communication quality could be improved for hard of hearing students in a classroom setting. The study focused on changes of the technical system, the arrangement of furniture and teachers’ attitudes towards teaching and learning. All changes were intended to create a learning situation with a high learning potential. Eight hard of hearing students, ages 13-16, were involved in the study over a period of three years. The empirical material was generated from group interviews and individual evaluations. It was found that most important factors regarding the technology were mobility, flexibility and the ability to handle background noise. With these changes, it is possible for these students to participate actively in the dialogue, to co-operate and to learn together. The results show how important it is for hard of hearing students to participate in more “natural” conversations.
