Abstract [en]

In order to shed light on Western public schools as neglected sites of social innovation, the article presents a single case study of a process for reconstruction of preschool premises in a Swedish municipality. Social innovation is discerned in terms of a value-based reconstruction of the schools, aiming to ensure gender equal play, learning and development among the children. The case highlights social innovation as an ideologically and locally contextualized process, reflecting the cultural dynamics and political processes in the public preschool context. It thereto pinpoints the materialization of norms and values in relation to the rooms, furniture and materials of public preschools. The study exposes how these were often ascribed stereotype notions both by the staff in their interaction with the children, and by the children themselves while playing and participating in other activities, thus hampering gender equal play, learning and development.
