Abstract [en]

We report on initial results from a survey conducted for establishing the state-of-practice with respect to student's IT usage in Swedish primary schools. There are a number of innovative efforts concerning IT usage, but students in many primary schools are also exposed to a number of different lock-in effects, including educational lock-in. Results reveal significant misconceptions concerning Open Source software and also considerable confusion amongst respondents related to the difference between software application and file format. The study characterises problems and provide recommended actions.
