The Fiction project has been funded, by the European Commission through the Swedish Council for Higher Education, with the aim of enhancing teachers' knowledge to teach students to use digital tools for their own understanding of science. The project is based on the assumption that digital tools in teaching have both positive and negative effects on learning. Among the positive effects, the most obvious is students’ increased commitment and motivation for their studies that increase learning results. Among the negative effects, the ones resulting when digital tools are not used by the teacher in the context of a well-reasoned pedagogy.
