Abstract This paper explores how iPad affects learning in primary school. To answer this, a research interview method has been used on five informants, consisting of three teachers and two IT consultants. We have looked at motivation as a factor in learning, and explored theories about traditional learning and blended learning, as well as game-based learning. We had explored the objectives of iPads in primary schools according to two IT consultants and we outline teachers' perception of iPads in education. Furthermore an observation of students' use of iPads in two different schools has also been made. We learn, that the digitalization of education had increased the demand for IT competences of teachers. Data from the observations suggest that the teacher's motivation to use iPads are reflected in students’ commitment in the classroom. In the presence of an IT consultant, there was a greater motivation among students as well as teachers. It is concluded that there is a crucial relation in the use of iPads in primary school in whether or not there is an IT consultant attached to the school. If iPads are not used in a right way, it can become a distraction and thereby prevents students from learning. This emphasize the importance of using an iPad where their potential is greatest.
