Abstract [en]

In everyday life it is often the result of knowledge that counts, not the actual knowledge itself. There are a lot of theories of how artefacts in one way or another can support human thinking and knowing. Intelligent tools can work as a supporting environment in a similar way that Vygotsky puts forward the Zone of proximal development. This study tries to find some empirical signs of how students use the web with consideration to such theories. Ten students put notes about their web use in a diary and were finally interviewed. The web is a natural part of their life. The result shows that the students use the web 1) as an external memory 2) as a reference and "thought prop" and 3) as a source of inspiration and guidance. A conclusion is that educational systems with traditional views of knowledge should look for opportunities many students already know.
