Abstract

The purpose of this study is to contribute with knowledge of about how teachers and other staff in the schools experience and use school blogs in classes where children has learning disabilities. The study clarifies patterns, methods and approaches which promotes the participation of students with different degrees of disability in the development of the school blog. The background for the study is based on my own experiences from working with children with disabilities and their school blogs and from discussions with university colleagues. Further impact of the study is based on literature, national and international science and theoretical concepts of participation. The theoretical concepts that were included in the study was Harts (1992) participation ladder and Szönyi and Söderqvist Dunkers (2015) participation model. The study contained a questionnaire that was developed to enable qualitative analyses. The result revealed that the pupils possibility to participate in the production of the school blogg was depending on the school workers ability to handle authority and ethics. The results and previous research also shows that school blogs needs to have support from the school administration so that schools has common prerequisites for school blogs. When common prerequisites was used pupils were more involved in the school blog development.
