Preschool teacher’s “free space” in teaching about science and technology : A case study of the preschool’s documentation work in comparison with curriculum requirements for documentation (English)
Abstract [en]

Based on Berg's (2003) model for document analysis with a supplementary interview of preschool manager, this study examined how far there is an unused space in science and technology at preschools. The study also aims to investigate how documentation work is governed by external and internal borders. The study was conducted at two municipal preschools in central Sweden and was based on the School Act and the preschool's curriculum (Skolverket, 2016) and local documentation in the form of a work plan from both preschools and a common systematic quality report. The documentation was compared to each other and supplemented with an interview to make its external and internal borders visible and examine whether there was an unused space. The result shows that there are many requirements for what the documentation in the preschool should contain and how the documentation work should be carried out. The preschools work with a prioritized development area that can be problematic for the documentation work regarding other goals.

The documentation shows a clear structure for how and what should be documented in the operations, both from the requirements of the curricula and the management. In the teaching of science and technology, we can instead find out that there is an unused space based on the documentation, but more research is needed on the subject in order to ensure that this is actually the case.
