Active School Transport - Students experiences of active school transport during the winter. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det är allt färre barn och ungdomar idag som når upp till den rekommenderade mängden fysisk aktivitet. Antalet barn som promenerar eller cyklar till skolan har drastiskt sjunkit de senaste årtiondena. Därför är det viktigt att undersöka hur elever upplever aktiva skoltransporter. Syftet med studien var att undersöka elevers upplevelser av att delta i en empowermentinspirerad studie för att främja aktiva skoltransporter under vintern. Genom en kvalitativ metod genomfördes fyra fokusgrupper där upplevelsen av aktiva skoltransporter under vintern diskuterades med photovoice som metod. Resultatet analyserades genom en latent innehållsanalys. Studien var en del av ett treårigt forskningsprojekt som pågår i norra Sverige kring aktiva skoltransporter där flertalet skolor medverkar. I detta projekt medverkade två klasser från årskurs 6. Resultatet visar att barns upplevelse av aktiva skoltransporter på vintern inte är särskilt annorlunda än vad de är på sommaren om förutsättningarna med bra däck och plogade vägar fungerar. Barnen upplevde att de känt sig piggare, har haft bättre koncentration i skolan samt en ökad gemenskap under projektet. Av resultatet bildades tre underteman; “yttre faktorer påverkar barnens sätt att ta sig till skolan”, “delaktighet och gemenskap genom processen är viktig”, “aktiva skoltransporter innebär många fördelar” som sedan bildade ett huvudtema; “omgivning, samhörighet och upplevda fördelar avgör elevers uppfattning av aktiva skoltransporter”.

Abstract [en]

There are fewer children and adolescents today who reach the recommended amount of physical activity. The number of children walking or cycling to school has drastically fallen in recent decades. Therefore, it is important to investigate how students experience active school transport. The aim of the study was to investigate students experiences of participating in an empowerment-inspired study to promote active school transport during the winter. Through a qualitative method, four focus groups were conducted, where the experience of active school transport during the winter was discussed with photovoice as a method. The result was analyzed by a latent content analysis. The study was part of a three-year research project in northern Sweden about active school transport where several schools participate. In this project, two classes participated from grade 6. The results show that children's experiences of active school transport in winter are not very different from what they are in the summer if the conditions of good tires and plowed roads exist. The children expressed that they felt more alert, had better concentration in school and a sense of community during the project. From the result, three sub themes were formed; “external factors affect children's ways of getting to school”, “participation and sense of community throughout the process are important”, “active school transport has many advantages” that then formed a main theme; “surroundings, togetherness and perceived benefits determine pupils' perception of active school transport”.
