”Find the lions with a torch!” : A qualitative study about preschool children's exploration of simple everyday techniques (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur förskolebarn i en ålder av tre till fem år utforskar hur enkel teknik fungerar och hur pedagogerna kan hjälpa barnen med detta. En ökad kunskap om barns lärande inom ämnet teknik kan vara till nytta för den vardagliga verksamheten.

För att få insikt i barnens utforskande användes ostrukturerade kvalitativa observationer som metod. Även användes kvalitativa semi-strukturerade intervjuer för att få kännedom om hur pedagogerna ser på teknik och hur de anser att barn upptäcker teknik.

Resultatet visar att barnens utforskande påverkas hur pedagogerna ställer frågor. Dessutom visar observationerna att barn lär sig genom  att göra och att de utforskar med hela sin kropp. Det kan även konkluderas att pedagogerna känner sig okunniga inom ämnet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how preschool children at the age of three to five years explore how simple technology works and how teachers can help them with this. A better understanding of children's learning in the subject can be beneficial for daily activities.

To gain insight into children's exploratorations, unstructured qualitative observation method was used. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were also used to ascertain how teachers look at technology and how they think children discover technology.

The results show that children's exploration is influenced by the way the teachers ask their questions. Moreover, the observations show that children learn by doing, and that they explore with their entire body. It can even be concluded that the teachers feel ignorant on this subject.
