Children's understanding and interest in technology : From everyday technology to modern technology (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur barn erfar vardagsteknik, att synliggöra vilken förståelse de har för tekniken samt se hur de använder den. En del av syftet var också att se hur barnen tar sig an tekniken och använder den i sin egen lek. Deltagarna i studien är tre barn på 5 år, som går på samma förskola och avdelning. Metoderna som används i studien är deltagande observation i en planerad vardagsrelaterad aktivitet, där vi tillsammans bakar muffins samt kvalitativ intervju. Studien har utgått från empirin och analyserats utifrån ett teknikdidaktiskt perspektiv. Resultatet lyfter fram barnens tidigare erfarenheter av vardagstekniken och visar en förståelse för olika artefakters funktion. Studien visar att det finns intresse hos barnen, för modern teknik och hur barn använder sig av ett undersökande tillvägagångssätt i sitt användande av tekniken. En annan del av resultatet lyfter fram pedagogens roll och visar svårigheten att behålla fokus på ett planerat lärandeobjekt i en aktivitet med barn.   

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to investigate how children experience everyday technology, to visibly-make their understanding of the technology and see how they use it. Part of the purpose was also to see the children´s approach of technology and use it in their own play. The participants in the study are three children of 5 years who attend the same preschool and department. The methods used in the study are participatory observation in a planned life-related activity, where we together baked muffins, as well as qualitative interview. The study was based on empirical analysis and analyzed from a technical didactic perspective. The result highlights the children's previous experiences of everyday technology and shows an understanding of the different artefacts. The study shows that there is interest with the children, in modern technology and how children use an investigative approach in their use of technology. Another part of the outcome highlights the role of the educator and shows the difficulty of maintaining focus on a planned learning object in an activity with children.
