Preschool teacher as a language educator : A study on the role of the preschool teacher as a language educator in the preschool during planned educational activities (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to provide knowledge about how preschool teachers use their role as language educators during planned educational activities. Language is a major part of our communication and children's development. The study processes how preschool teachers work to simulate children's language development from a socio-cultural perspective.

The methods used to present the study consist of both observations and interviews. These two methods complement each other well based on the information they give as the observation gives an insight into what is happening in practice while the interviews confirm or deny the observation material based on the preschool teacher's view.

The result of the study emphasizes that the participating preschool teachers see themselves as permanent language educators. They are aware of how different interventions lead to different learning situations and that the children are affected by what expressions and behaviors are used.

The study also shows that preschool teachers work mostly with the language integrated into the remaining subjects and not in individual learning. They use several subjects in an activity for optimal development and learning for the children.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att bidra med kunskap kring hur förskollärare använder sin roll som språkutbildare under planerade pedagogiska aktiviteter. Språket är en stor del av vår kommunikation och barns utveckling. Studien bearbetar hur förskollärarna arbetar för att stimulera barns språkutveckling sett utifrån ett sociokulturellt perspektiv.

De metoder som använts för att föra fram studien består av observationer samt intervjuer. Dessa två metoder kompletterar varandra bra utifrån den information de bidrar med då observationen ger en inblick i vad som sker i praktiken medan intervjuerna fyller ut observationsmaterialet utifrån förskollärarens syn.

Resultatet av studien visar att de deltagande förskollärarna ser på sig själva som ständiga språkutbildare. De är medvetna om hur olika ingripanden leder till olika lärsituationer samt att barnen påverkas av vilka uttryck och beteenden som används.

Studien visar även att förskollärarna arbetar till största del med språket integrerat i resterande ämnen och inte i enskilt lärande. De använder sig av flera ämnen i en aktivitet för mest gynnsam utveckling och lärande hos barnen.
