Abstract [en]

The purpose of this exam-composition is to make researches into the importance of children’s play as a pedagogical tool in the classroom and how playing games can be utilized as a resource in the learning environment of the classroom. In order to achieve the results, three basic questions have been used: In which function is children’s play used as a pedagogical tool in the classroom? What is the pedagogues view upon children’s play and it’s function in the learning process? How can children’s play be utilized to develop and enhance learning? The study is conducted at two different schools in Norrbotten and based upon qualitative interviews with pedagogues mainly working with the first to third year of the nine year compulsory school. The interviews had their focus mainly on the view on children’s play among pedagogues, as a method for education and learning in their day to day work with the nine-year compulsory school. The result shows that the emphasizing on children’s play during the studies to become a pedagogue differs through the years but from the 1980s until today it has earned a larger place in Swedish pedagogy. Our pedagogues has the same basic view upon the pedagogical work method surrounding children’s play and the importance of adapting the play according to the pupils age and prerequisites. Children’s play fills a function among the children, both for the qualitative gathering of knowledge as well as a method for developing the social skills and abilities to function within a group. Children’s play can be utilized both creatively and in a didactic manner, in order to render more efficient teaching which this exam shows by emphasizing the importance of children’s play as a pedagogical tool and a resource in the learning environment of the classroom
