  • Preschool class year 6 (optional)

  • Compulsory school years 7-15 (mandatory)

  • Gymnasium years 16-19 (optional)

  • In 2011 new curriculums were introduced for all

    school forms

  • The new curriculum contains three parts:

    1. Fundamental values and tasks of the school

    2. Overall goals and guidelines for education

    3. Syllabuses which are supplemented by knowledge requirements

Values and guidelines in the curriculum

  • democratic foundations

  • all childrens equal value

  • pupils' right to influence

  • solidarity and inclusion

  • lifelong desire to learn

  • equivalent, regardless of where in the country the school is provided

called Vinslöv in Sweden.

  • 150 pupils in the age span 6-12 years,

    divided over 7 classes.

3. Background and goals for the project

In February 2012 weapplied for a grant from the Marcus och Amalia Wallenbergs Memorial Fund.

The situation at thattimewas:

  • New headmaster, Jenny

  • The teacherswantedhelpwith digital assistiveteachingtools

  • Manypupilsdid not reach the subjectrequirements

  • The students with special needs did not have a learningenvironment that enhancedtheirlearning

Our application and the theoretical considerations related to the plan

The applicationfocused on the threeperspectives

  • ICT

  • Learning

  • Special Education

  • ICT in schools

  • ICT for optimal learningoutcomes

  • ICT as a possibility for democracy and inclusion

  • ICT as a part ofequivalent teaching and equal terms for pupils

    For development of ICT in learning we use the EVO model (Puenteduras 2006)

Learning perspective

Knut Illeris (2007) defines three dimensions of learning

  • Content

  • Interaction

  • Driving force

    Illeris means that teaching at schools usually starts with the content, while good learning has to start with the driving force, followed by interaction and content.

    Peter Gärdenfors (2010) takes us from learning to understanding and the lust of understanding. His arguments relates to Jerome Bruner: Humans have an innate desire to learn.

Peter Gärdenfors, Lund University

Efficient use of ICT in education

  • Visualization

  • Simulation

  • Tutoring systems

Special education

From special educationtoinclusiveeducation

  • Curriculum about all pupils’ rights

  • Factors for inclusive processes:

    • Leadershipwith a vision

    • Plans withfollow-ups

    • Reflections

    • Skillsdevelopment

    • Flexible support and cooperation in teaching

      (Nilholm 2006)

study circle



team development

Two team

study tour


classroom work – example 1

Inspired of “write to read”

based on Arne Tragetons research:

It is easier to learn to write than to read.

Children's fine motor skills are not developed enough to writing texts with a pencil in preschool class and grade 1.

We learn from each other.

classroom work – example 2

Inspired of “entrepreneurial learning”

Promote general skills such as taking initiative, responsibility and turn ideas into action.

Developing curiosity, self-confidence, creativity and courage to take risks.
