Abstract [en]

Five teachers from the Swedish compulsory school were interviewed about technology

and technology as a subject in school. One field of work for each of the teachers was

observed. The analysis is under work based on the variation theory. The aim of this

paper is to present what kinds of variation that are made available in two teachers

classrooms. Examples from the data show that there are different kinds of variation in

Johns1 and Gustavs teaching, but one kind more frequent than others. In Gustavs case

the principle-apply variation is most common, which means that there is a

fundamental idea needed to be understood by the students, for them to be capable to

make suitable choices and/or acts. In Johns case the most frequent kind of variation is

the example variation. It means that the examples of a specific aspect vary. Interesting

to discuss is how these results affect the shape of the technology subject in the two

teachers classrooms
