This research aims to examine how we with Q-methodology can scrutinize opinions and attitudes on the iPad as a teaching tool, as displayed by the teachers of Danish primary schools. In exploring these opinions, a comparison between teachers who already have iPads implemented in their lectures and teachers who do not use iPads as a teaching tool is made. The method of Q is employed, due to its ability to present collected quantitative data statistically, and collaborate it with qualitative empiricism. This results in total overview of all the opinions and attitudes on the iPad as a teaching tool. It can be concluded that the usage of the Q method is a good method, when exploring this problem, as it effectively displays which teachers agree on the same subject, as well as combining this, with explanations from the teachers themselves. By using this method to inspect our problem, it can be concluded that there are numerous different opinions on the iPad as a teaching tool. Despite this, there is a predominant tendency to all the teachers agreeing that the iPad is a great teaching tool in Danish primary schools. The results are put into perspective according to two theorists, respectively Angela McFarlane and Jeppe Bundsgaard.
