Preschool teachers’ thoughts about the forest as a place for education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en intervjustudie gjord med elva pedagoger verksamma i förskolan. Syftet med undersökningen är att ta reda på hur pedagoger ser skogen som en pedagogisk resurs. Resultatet visar att förskolepedagoger ser skogen som en pedagogisk resurs. Man använder sig av skogen i inlärningen av naturkunskap men också i exempelvis svenska och matematik. Pedagogerna såg möjligheter med skogen som till exempel att konkret visa barnen hur de olika årstiderna ser ut. Men de såg även hinder, som t.ex. pedagogers brist på intresse och okunskap för naturkunskap och skogen. Dels var det att vissa förskolor har hög invandringsprocent på barn från krigshärjade länder vilket försvårade arbetet med skogen som pedagogisk resurs. Detta för att barnen och deras familjer fann skogen som en otrygg och farlig miljö.

Abstract [en]

This is an interview study with eleven preschool teachers. The purpose with this study has been to find out teachers view on the forest as an educational resource. The result shows that the interviewed consider the forest as an educational resource. With educational resource means that the pedagogs saw the forest as an access in children’s learning process. They use the forest in the learning of science, but also, for example, Swedish and mathematics. Some difficulties were encountered during the interviews; one was the lack of interest and knowledge of science and the forest. The other thing was that many of the children come from war- torn countries which made it difficult to work with the forest as an educational resource. Because these children and their families found the forest as an insecure and dangerous environment.
