Learning Situations: Learning and the Use of Mobile Technology from a Learners Perspective
2014 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
What is learning from the learners’ point of view and how does this relate to the use of mobile technology? Young learners (6-14 years old) created own photos of learning situations, which served as premise in a qualitative research approach. Explorative conversations and photo-based group interviews were used as methods. Inspired by the methods Stimulated Recall and Photo Eliciting, a total of 283 photos were taken by the learners including 21 group interviews generated individual statements and utterances from 207 pupils in Scandinavian schools (K-9). The authors are especially interested in discussing the methodology, a section that could be seen as fairly unorthodox in some research communities, since this workshop paper contributes with awareness and discussion about research methods in which young people have an important role as co-producers of knowledge.
