7 B har ingen webbtidning - möjligheter och problem med att använda Internet för publicistiska arbetssätt i grundskola och gymnasium

Abstract [en]

The primary purpose of this study, is to shed light on the reasons why so few primary and secondary schools take advantage of the possibilities in using the Internet to publish pupils own texts, photos, films, radio programs et. al. Today, there are only around 50 active Swedish public school magazines on the Internet, produced by students in Swedish schools. By contrast, 80% of all Swedish young people between the ages of 12 and 24 have their own login on LunarStorm, an Internet community where mainly young people publish texts and images and communicate with one other in a variety of ways, ie. mail, chat rooms and guestbook’s. The paradox is obvious; young people are highly motivated to publish and communicate in this way, yet the school system does not seem to take advantage of this opportunity toward pedagogical ends. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to map out the advantages and disadvantages for a single class, an entire school, or the learning process as a whole, of using a publishing approach in education, in debate and theory, law and regulations and trough interviews. One of the hypotheses was that the causal connection behind the lack of publishing approach in the school system, probably have many different reasons. Therefore a method named EPISTLE, was used. The method is developed to look at a phenomenon from different angles to find not only one, but many different explanations, advantages and disadvantages, when studying technical implementations in a modern society. This leads to discussions of many theories, including theories about motivation, the public space and the public sphere, how innovations are spread and different pedagogical theories. Included in this study, there is also a section containing facts about laws and regulations according to publishing and the school system in Sweden. The study results in a long list of possibilities and problems. On the positive side, we already have good general computer skills among the teachers and an Internet connection in nearly every Swedish (or Scandinavian) school. Those teachers, who have tried a publishing approach, always seem to be highly motivated and enthusiastic and do not see any backsides of the concept. On the more negative side, we can find lack of technical support, fear of breaking the law, fear of conflict with parents and school staff and a wide-spread lack of knowledge in how to publish; booth in terms of content and technique.
