How does it works? : A study of preschool children´s thoughts and perceptions about how a tablet works and is used (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine preschool children´s own thoughts and perceptions of how a tablet works and how the children themselves use it. In today´s society we are constantly connected with various technical artifacts and the children grow up with digital tools that have become a natural part of our everyday lives. The study was conducted using qualitative interviews combined with short observations of eight children between the ages of 4 and 5 years. The result shows that tablets are well known to the children, and that all children had used a tablet before the survey began. The children in the study mainly use tablets to play games but they are also used by some children to watch children´s programs, take pictures, film and listen to music. Thanks to the clear interface and design of tablets, these artifacts are easy to use for the children and they also enable collaboration when the children use a tablet together. The results also show that children´s perceptions of how the tablet works are varied. This survey has helped to visualize children´s own perceptions of the artifact and how they interact with the tablet.
