What do they mean by digital competence? : A study of teachers’ preceptions about digital competence and the digitalization of schools (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta arbete har sin utgångspunkt i den ökade digitaliseringen inom skolväsendet, den reviderade läroplanen och regeringens digitaliseringsstrategi för skolväsendet. Arbetet syftade till att undersöka hur lärare uppfattar begreppet digital kompetens samt hur de uppfattar sin egen digitala kompetens. Arbetet avsåg också att undersöka om lärarna känner sig redo att möta de utmaningar digitaliseringen av skolväsendet kan innebära. Detta undersöktes genom kvalitativa forskningsintervjuer och en enkätundersökning. Enkätundersökningen syftade till att ge ett större omfång i såväl uppfattningen av digital kompetens som attityder till digitaliseringen av skolan. Resultaten visar att digital kompetens är ett mångfacetterat begrepp som upplevs svårt att beskriva och att många lärare saknar en tydlig förklaring till begreppet. Vidare visade resultaten att många lärare är positivt inställda till digitaliseringen av skolan men att många lärare upplever ett behov av mer fortbildning för att möta  krav som digitaliseringen innebär. Undersökningarna visar även att tillgången till digitala resurser vaierar i landet.

Abstract [en]

This essay is based on the increased digitalization of the Swedish school system, the revised curriculum and the government’s digitalization strategy for the school system. This essay aims to explore teachers’ perspectives on the concept of digital competence and how they perceive their own digital competence. The essay also aims to investigate if teachers feel equipped to meet the changes posed by the digitalization of the school system. The aim was addressed through qualitative interviews and a survey. The results show that the concept of digital competence is a multi-faceted term that is difficult to describe. Many teachers express that they lack a distinct explanation of the term. Furthermore, the results show that many teachers have a positive attitude towards the digitalization of schools, but many teachers experience a need for further education to meet the demands that digitalization entails.
