Abstract [sv]

I skolans matematikundervisning inkluderas ibland surfplattor och appar. En app är ett dataprogram som används på surfplattor. Syftet med denna studie är att bilda kunskap om hur lärare i årskurs 1–3 undervisar matematik med hjälp av olika appar. Studien genomfördes genom kvalitativa intervjuer med sex lärare som arbetar kontinuerligt med appar i matematikundervisningen. Resultatet visar att om appar ska användas i undervisningen bör det finnas ett tydligt mål och ett syfte med användandet, samt att det ska kunna kopplas till läroplanen och matematikboken. Vidare framkommer att användandet av appar sker på olika sätt och oftast med flera syften. Främst beskrivs appar som ett kompletterande verktyg och som en tillgång för att introducera ett centralt innehåll. Lärarnas syften med användandet var bland annat för mängdträning, individualisering eller för att skapa en högre måluppfyllelse. Andra syften med att använda appar var tidsbesparing, höjd motivation, direkt återkoppling, eller för bedömning och uppföljning. Lärarna använde olika appar i sin undervisning och det framkom vid intervjuerna att urvalet gjordes på tre olika sätt: Genom ett fritt val, via en IKT-ansvarig på skolorna eller via kommunens IT- avdelning.

Abstract [en]

Tablets and apps are more and more often used in math teaching. An app is a software program used for tablet computers.

The purpose of this study is to create knowledge about how teachers in classes 1–3 teach math with help of different apps. The study was made through qualitative interviews with six teachers who work continuously with applications in math teaching. The result shows that if apps are to be used in teaching there should be a clear goal and purpose of the use. It should also be possible to relate to the curriculum and the course book. Furthermore, the study reveals that there are different ways and purposes of using apps. The apps are mainly described as complementary tools and as an asset in order to introduce a mathematical area. The teachers’ purposes were, for example, to increase the amount of practice, individualization, or to create a higher accomplishment rate. Other purposes of using apps were to produce direct feedback, increase student motivation, or for evaluation and follow-up. The selections of apps which were used for teaching varied and were chosen in three different ways; through free choice, via an ICT responsible, or via an IT office.
