Sammanfattning

Due to ever increasing digitalisation, both opportunities and challenges are offered by the proliferation of laptops and tablets in the classrooms of contemporary schools. The technology provided by school is, however, not the only technology available. In Sweden, almost every pupil in secondary school has their own mobile phone and schools differ in their approach, from a complete ban to promoting use of mobile phones in class. This case study investigates secondary school pupils’ perspective on mobile phone use in school: What are their perceptions of mobile phone use during lessons in a 1:1 school environment, in which all students have an internet connected laptop provided by the school? Data consist of focus group discussions with 13-14 years old pupils. The findings indicate that mobile phones were used as a complement to the schools’ laptops or sometimes as the technology that the students preferred. Occasionally school assignments required that mobile phones were used during lessons and sometimes this was explicitly encouraged by the teacher. The use of mobile phones differed depending on if the lesson was challenging or engaging the pupils. The students were further concerned about the disruption and disturbance that mobile phones may cause, and voiced a need for guidance from teachers. The pupils’ narratives indicate a shift from teacher-centred learning to personalized student-centred learning.
