Title It is New, Now Learn! - A research on if computer and Internet usage contributes to learning from the students’ perspective
Author(s) Rosander, Charlene

English abstract
In the research I am investigating if computer and Internet usage contributes to learning. I am doing this through interviews with six students at their first year in sixth form. My research question is: How do the students’ experience the usage of computers and Internet and how this affects their learning process? My aim is to contribute to the apprehension of how to adjust teaching involving computer and Internet usage by finding out in which way/-s the students find this educational format beneficial to learning. I found that computer and Internet usages contribute to informal, assimilative, accommodative and convergent learning. It also triggers motivation, feeling and volition which are within the learning dimension strife. Interaction is filled in form of perception, mediation, imitation, participation and activity. Furthermore, it distinguishes content, perpetuate understanding and initiate life-long learning. However, I found that it can contradictory also make it difficult to create understanding and distinguishing content. It can also put a halt on motivation and be a distraction for learning.
