Du vet ju vad vårt styrdokument säger...: En essä om det mätbara och det svårmätbara lärandet i förskolan

My essay begins with two stories showing two different perspectives when looking at learning in preschool. These two different learning styles I have chosen to call, the measurable and the difficult to measure learning. As a pedagogue I am involved in both events. In these events I describe how different we pedagogues interpret our governing documents on children's learning. By describing how the educational activities are designed differently in the two events, I try to highlight the pedagogues views on learning in preschool. Although we have the same governing document, we differ in our work with children.
In my study, I look at how educators Piaget and Vygotskij regard the child and its development from a socio-cultural and a cognitive perspective. I want to see if there is any connection between their views on child development and what is happening in my two events.
In the essay, I also try to find out how we work with children in preschool when it comes to both the measurable and the difficult to measure learning and why we do it so differently. Our society has recently become more focused on measurable results in order for us to assure the quality of the work we do. In preschool we also have a duty to assure the quality of our educational activities. I examine whether that is the reason we have different views on learning. The measurable learning makes it easier for pedagogues to see what children have learned while the difficult to measure, makes it more complicated to measure results.
