"The Pope has Twitter, I retweet him every day" : A study of upper secondary school adolescents approach to learning through social media in teaching (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie syftar till att undersöka gymnasieungdomars syn på lärande genom social interaktion på sociala medier i undervisningen. Studien har genomförts med hjälp av fokusgrupper som har intervjuats utifrån en semistrukturerad intervjuguide. Fokusgrupperna har utgjorts av sammanlagt 17 gymnasieungdomar från en gymnasieskola i västra Sverige. Datan har sedan analyserats med hjälp av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys och vidare har resultatet analyserats utifrån ett sociokulturellt perspektiv på lärande, där social interaktion är en viktig del. Resultatet visar att gymnasieungdomarna ser sociala medier som ett hjälpmedel i undervisningen och att det sker ett informellt lärande när ungdomarna möts och samspelar på sociala medier. Ungdomarna har en positiv syn på användandet och ser det som ett verktyg som underlättar och bidrar till kommunikation.
