Abstract [en]

This article describes how working with Internet seeking in search engines like Google can affect young students motivation learning to read. The data on which this paper is based, was collected during 2002 in a Swedish setting with 52 students, 6 to10 years. The Internet seeking was integrated in all teaching, though the time spent by the computer for each child was relatively short.

The approach was ethnographic including various data collection methods such as ob-servations, interviews, chats, examining written documents, and a reading comprehension test. The data was analysed within a socio-cultural perspective, which claims that knowledge is constructed and developed through communication with the environment in a wide sense.

It was obvious that the children became interested in reading when they saw the older ones working with the Internet, finding interesting information they shared with younger classmates. The results of the reading comprehension test, which was conducted every year, showed that all grade 1 students had reached a reading level corresponding to the average of grade 2. Before the start of the project this had never happened.

Further research might confirm if working with Internet searches can be used as a method to motivate children learning to read.
