Abstract [en]

This study was conducted to investigate what kind of digital tools teachers are using in the English as a second language classroom. It also examined two teachers’ and one student’s view on digital tools and what they believed were the advantages and disadvantages of using such tools. The study was conducted with a qualitative method. Specifically, the data were collected through semi-structured interviews with two English teachers from two different secondary schools in Stockholm and with one student from an English class taught by one of the teachers. The student was in year nine in the Swedish educational system. The findings indicate that the teachers use various kinds of digital devices and that their overall view of these devices is positive. The findings regarding the student’s view on digital tools are both positive and negative. However, if the student were to be given the choice of using or not using digital tools in the English language classroom, she would not use them.
