Facebook as a complement to mother tongue education (English)
Abstract [en]

Facebook is the most widely used social media in Sweden. It allows the user to easily share the latest from their everyday life, their opinions, as well as communicate with their acquaintances. According to the latest poll from the Foundation for Internet Infrastructure, 33% of teenagers in the ages 12-15 spend their Internet time being active on social media. 63% of these teenagers visit Facebook on daily basis.

Herein, we examined how Facebook can be exploited as a complement to the education of the mother tongue. The investigation was performed with a questionnaire as well as a test group that has been supplemented with semi-structured interviews. 

In conclusion, the study showed promising results in the usage of Facebook with the education. By taking parts in discussions on Facebook, the students did not only improve their discussion abilities but also the writing. It was also observed that the communication between student and teacher was greatly improved. A remarkable observation was that students grown up in Sweden were more in favour for the use of Facebook as an educational tool than students grown up outside of Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

Facebook är Sverige mest använda sociala medium. Användaren kan enkelt dela det senaste från sin vardag, sina åsikter samt kommunicera med sina bekanta. Enligt den senaste mätningen från Stiftelsen för internetinfrastruktur, spenderar en tredjedel av unga i åldersgruppen 12-15 år sin internettid på sociala medier, varav 63 % av dem besöker Facebook dagligen.

I denna studie undersöktes hur Facebook kan användas som komplement till modersmålsundervisningen. Studien utfördes genom en enkätundersökning samt en testgrupp som har kompletterats med semistrukturerade intervjuer.

Undersökningen gav positiva resultat gentemot användningen av Facebook vid modersmålsundervisningen. Genom användningen av Facebook, kunde elever öva sitt skriv- och diskussionsförmåga utanför klassrummet. Undersökningen visade även att kommunikationen mellan elever och lärare förbättrades genom att eleverna hade möjlighet till lektionsundervisning utanför klassrummet. En annan observation var att elever, som har växt upp i Sverige var mer positiva till användningen av Facebook än sina klasskamrater som har växt upp i andra länder.
