Abstract [en]

In the field of teacher education the rising popularity of using social media technologies as a resource in the teaching activities has contributed to an extension of new possibilities and tools for learning. However less often the implementation is followed by a discussion about what learning qualities those environments offer. This paper is work-in-progress dealing with student conversations in such learning forum. Data consists of the posts made by five teacher students on a Web based forum during five weeks. Within this period they started thirty conversations that all together resulted in 67 pages of text. All the conversations were printed out and thoroughly analysed. The main questions of interest during the reading of the data material was: 1) What issues are discussed in the student conversations? 2) How are they writing about those areas according to the rhetoric? At the next analytical level questions of subject positions and discourses are handled. The study uses two discourse analytical perspectives, both founded in social constructionism and post-structuralistic theory. Discursive psychology that mainly is focusing on the actor and the resources used in a conversation, and discourse theory that large extent is focusing on the discourses. The combination opens up for a two-sided analysis where the interesting relationship between agency and structure may be analysed. The aim of this research project is to analyse and discuss teacher students web based conversations in an educational science course. The preliminary results show that a variation of subject-positions is made possible in the conversations, where the subject educational science is extended and related to more personal and private spheres in the students’ everyday life. The project is interesting because it opens up for a discussion of learning qualities in relation to Web based platforms.
