Abstract [en]

This text deals with a pilot study made in the Swedish School subject sloyd. The study aimed at some methodological questions concerning access to sloyd objects: Can ICT supported pupils collect and document research materials? Will this method reveal narrative qualities? If so, how are these expressed? The research material consists of Internet Community communication including photos taken by the pupils, and qualitative research interviews. The concepts mode and media are used in describing the empirical material. Short narratives extracted from the empirical material forms the starting point for reflection on the issue of complication and resolution. Two narrative perspectives are intertwined in the study; narrative inquiry research method and semiotic narrative. The study shows that pupils are capable of research co-operation and that narrative qualities can be observed by this method. Colour seems to play an important role as a mode of expression.
