Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport har undersökt hur interaktivitet, genom interaktiva barnböcker på mobila enheter med pekskärm, kan påverka engagemanget för läsande hos barn i tre till fem års ålder. Detta har gjorts genom att en interaktiv barnbok skapades och deltagande observationer sedan utfördes vid sex tillfällen på tre förskolor där barnen fick testa den utvecklade produkten. De deltagande observationerna kompletterades sedan med åsikter om digitalt lärande från förskollärare på respektive förskola genom semistrukturerade intervjuer.

Resultatet från undersökningen visar på en tendens till att engagemanget hos barnen kan ökas genom att införa interaktivitet i barnböcker genom att leverera dessa på mobila enheter med pekskärm. Undersökningen är dock gjord i för liten skala samt att produkten och undersökningen innehåller för många brister för att kunna ställa upp en faktisk teori. Istället ställs en hypotes upp som skulle behöva testas vidare under längre tid och i en mer rigorös undersökning.

Abstract [en]

This paper has researched how interactivity, through interactive children’s books on mobile devices with touch screen, can affect the involvement in reading for children in the ages three to five years old. This has been done by creating an interactive children’s book and then conducting participative observations over six occasions at three different preschools where the children got to test the developed product. The observations were then supplemented with opinions on digital learning from preschool teachers from each of the schools through the use of semi-structured interviews.

The result from this research shows a tendency that the involvement of the kids can be increased by introducing interactivity to children’s books by the use of mobile devices with touch screen. However the research is at too small a scale and both the product and the research contain too many flaws for an actual theory to be constructed. Instead a hypothesis is constructed that would need to be evaluated during a longer period of time and through more rigorous research.
