Abstract [en]

Abstract The purpose of this study is to contribute with knowledge about how secondary school students with reading and writing disabilities, use and relate to, digital tools in the school environment. The study has investigated which kinds of digital tools that the students have access to during a day in school, and how students describe challenges and opportunities when using digital tools. The purpose and research questions of the study are addressed with semi-structured interviews with six secondary school students at three different schools. The students were selected by special education teachers at each school, since the students use digital tools and have reading and writing disabilities. The interviews were recorded and transcribed. The text material was coded, divided in themes and analyzed from a sociocultural perspective of learning. The results show that the access and use of digital tools differs very much within the schools. The students using tools most frequently were most positive and saw most opportunities with the use of tools. Listening to texts in different reading situations, getting help from spelling correction programs when writing and using various games on the computer during proficiency practicing, were described as the most important, most fun and most useful digital tools by the students. Challenges reported by the students were technical problems with the tools and a lack of digital knowledge among the teachers. The students also requested tutoring to understand how the digital tools can support and challenge them in their reading- and writing development.KeywordsDigital tools, reading and writing disabilities, scaffolding, adaptation, participation, independ-ence, motivationV
