Preschool teachers' approach to the significance of curriculum during the outdoor activities. : A study of the importance of the curriculum in the outdoor environment (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to learn more about the ways preschool teachers´ identify outdoor activities linked to the curriculum. There is also an interest to understand the preschool teacher role in the outdoor environment and children’s learning processes. The intention is to gain a deeper understanding of the preschool teachers’ work with the curriculum during outdoor activities.

Two questions responds in the study:

  • In what way do the preschool teachers’ perceive their role in outdoor activities?

* What ways are the environment described as significant to learning?

In order to respond to these questions a qualitative group-interview was conducted. Focusing on the importance of the preschool-curriculum during outdoor activities. A phenomenographical approach were used, to analyze the material.

The study shows that a well-considered preschool yard can stimulate children's curiosity and contribute to spontaneous learning opportunities. A crucial factor is how well the teacher knows the curriculum and how it can be applied during the outreach. The result gives examples on the significance of the preschool teacher´s approach to children. Further, on ways these approaches affect the children and their learning process.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka betydelsen av läroplanen i utomhuspeda- gogiken med utgångspunkt i hur pedagoger uppfattar detta. Det finns ett un- derliggande intresse av att förstå pedagogens roll och hur den kan påverka bar- nens lärprocesser vid lek under utevistelsen. Avsikten är att få en djupare för- ståelse för pedagogens arbete med läroplanen under utomhusverksamheten.

Forskningsfrågorna är: * På vilka sätt definierar pedagogerna sin roll i utevistelsen? * På vilka sätt beskriver pedagogerna miljöns betydelse för lärande?

För att kunna undersöka detta har litteratur, tidigare forskning studerats och en kvalitativ gruppintervju genomfördes med fokus på läroplanens betydelse un- der utomhusaktiviteterna. Intervjuerna genomfördes på en förskola där tre pe- dagoger deltog. Resultaten analyserades utifrån en fenomenografisk ansats.

Studien har visat att pedagogens roll under utevistelsen har stor betydelse för de sätt lärande möjliggörs eller begränsas. En avgörande faktor är, hur väl pe- dagogen är insatt i läroplanen samt hur den kan tillämpas under utevistelsen. Studien visar att en väl genomtänkt förskolegård kan stimulera barns nyfiken- het och bidra till spontana lärtillfällen.
