“You feel like your head is clear” : A qualitative study of the correlation between pshysical activity and quietude for studying (English)
Abstract [en]

It is often emphasized that children and young people around the world are too inactive, that the schools only focus on theoretical learning and that children in school lack concentration or wander too much in the classroom. The connection between the aforementioned observations was something we wanted to interpret and was something that we found interesting. In order to answer our questions we approached them from a child’s point of view. The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between physical activity and quietude for studying. This survey was conducted at two schools that participate in a project where they add more scheduled physical activity. Applying qualitative research methods such as interviews and observations, we obtained results that were then analyzed from different perspectives on learning and physiological processes, including theories about learning. The results showed that both the students and educators in the study considered that physical activity had positive effects. Furthermore, the results showed that the students perceived that physical activity leads to increased quietude for studying. Educators were also positive about the effects of physical activities had on studies, but they considered that structure and clarity were also important. From our research we can conclude that the students agree that having physical activity in school is advantageous.
