Abstract [en]

This paper discusses results from research on what happens when modern technology (ICT) meets the organizational culture of Swedish popular education organizations (folk high schools and study associations). These kinds of educational organizations are traditionally value based and often oriented to civic society. The project has focused the role of ICT as an actor, and at electronic and social networks in organizing work. The aim here is to analyse organizational (cultural) identities in the relation between ICT and some important concepts tied to popular education as phenomenon, e.g. how ‘educational missions’ are expressed encountering ICT in these contexts. Theoretical starting-point is Giddens’ ideas of society and the relations between actors and structure, individuals and organization and about reflexivity and self-identity.
