English abstract
This degree project aims to investigate if ICT has any influence as motivation for English foreign language learners. Furthermore, this study is to investigate in what way the motivation is affected, if it is affected at all. Today, computers and other digital tools such as tablets influence the society greatly and are a part of the learners’ everyday life. The data in this study is analyzed and collected through survey questionnaires. The participants are 45 third graders from a Swedish elementary school. Many students today have a great interest in computers and tablets since it is a part of their daily life. Andersson (2003) states that many are bored since the Swedish school still hold to the old traditions. Hence, this project aims to investigate if incorporating ICT in the EFL classroom can increase students’ motivation. The conclusion of this study is that the majority of students are affected by ICT in a positive way. Also, the collected data showed that students’ motivation increased because the lessons got more fun and they felt happier when incorporating ICT in the EFL classroom.
