Abstract [en]

There has been a discussion for many years now in Sweden regarding the use of computers in the classrooms. In some schools teachers and pupils are working with a type of method called ASL, wich freely translated means ”writing your way into reading”. With this method the pupils use computor keyboards instead of pencils when learning how to read and write. The purpose with this method is that it is believed to be easier to learn how to write than how to read. Another purpose with this method is that children lacking the fine motor skills needed can also learn how to write in early age.In this study a number of interviews has been made with teachers regarding their experience of the method. The main questions were about the teachers experiences regarding advantages and disadvantages using this method and how they had adjusted the method, if needed, at their schools.The result of this study shows that when working with ASL, the teachers find the pupils become more positive and more engaged in their school work, they also see a quicker progress of the pupils writing skills.. The factors that the teachers found less satisfying was that the teachers need to have a lot of knowledge about different methods used in the reading and writing education in order to optimaize ASL, they also found that some pupils, even when working with computors, still have difficulties reaching their goals. These pupils still need extra help and support.The schools has made some adjustments in order to optimize the method. Some schools start to train handwriting in earlier years than ASL suggests. All of the schools in the study combines this way of working with other methods. The teachers at the different schools are also helped to deepen their knowledge about the method with further training in ASL.
