School politicians in a small Swedish town were concerned about the children's unequal opportunities to gain computer skills. They advertised for teachers to work on a project aimed at stimulating a general development of education, using computers as a learning tool. Two teachers in Grade 1-3 in a compulsory school were selected: in the two classes of 42 pupils the ratio of computer and other digital equipment was one computer per two pupils. I have carried out an ethnographical study (with a variety of instruments) over three years to evaluate the project.
