Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien var att ta reda på vad sydafrikanska förskolepedagoger anser om lek i relation till lärande, utveckling och inflytande i lek. Vad pedagoger anser om barns lärande och utveckling, samt om barn har inflytande i leken i den dagliga verksamheten.Den metod jag använde för att få svar på mina frågor var intervjuer. Jag intervjuade 6 förskollärare i en sydafrikansk kåkstad. Analysen har utförts tematiskt, vilket fokuserat på två teman; lek, lärande och utveckling som ett tema samt barns inflytande i leken som det andra temat.I min studie har jag kommit fram till att de förskollärare som medverkar var mycket positiva till barns lek. De ansåg att leken gynnar barn i deras lärande och utveckling. Leken omfattar det mesta i ett barns liv. Det är i leken barn upptäcker, lär sig samt utvecklas.Resultatet från studien visar att lek är en grundläggande del i barns liv, vilket märktes i såväl litteratur som intervjuer. Resultatet visar att pedagogerna ville barnens bästa, vilket är i samklang FN:s barnrättskonvention.Nyckelord: Sydafrika,

Abstract [en]

The purpose was to find out how South African preschool teachers regard play and its relationship to learning, development and influence in play. What teachers think about children’s learning and development, and if children have any influence in their preschool play, according to the preschool teachers.The empirical material consists of interviews with six South African preschool teachers. The analysis has been conducted according to a thematic content of analysis focusing two themes; play, learning and development as one theme and children’s influence on their play as a second theme.The preschool teachers considered that play is beneficial for children in their learning and development. Play is about everything in children’s life; through play children discover the world, learn and develop in a general sense. Play also contributes to children’s learning about interaction with others.A conclusion from the study is that play is considered as an essential part in children’s lives, both in literature and in the interviews. The result shows that the preschool teachers wanted what is best for the children. As the Convention on the rights of the Child states about play: it’s about survival and development, which the teachers considered was a priority.
