Abstract

Digital literacy is a priority of the European Commission and it is a priority for schools [17]. To bridge digital divides, schools have ongoing projects implementing ICT and developing digital skills. One way of implementing the use of ICT in education is through lesson designs that integrate ICT. The findings in this paper come from an intervention study conducted in a Swedish upper secondary school in 2013; a group of teachers designed and implemented an ICT-rich lesson design. The school have an ongoing 1:1 project i.e. every student has an individual laptop. The laptop is identified as a tool for learning in accordance to The Ecology of resource Model [10]. For this paper focus group interviews, teacher interviews and results from two student surveys were used. The results are consistent: there is a difference in frequency of use of the computer between different types of programmes, i.e. between students attending higher education preparatory programmes and vocational programmes. 34% of the students attending a higher education preparatory program answered that they use their computer at school for schoolwork every day, the corresponding percentages for the vocational programs were 3%. These results raise questions about access, use and digital divide.
