Science and technology in preschool : Educators work with the scientific and technological objectives (English)
This surveys purpose is to find out how educators work with science and technology in preschool, what effects occur if the teaching does not take place and if there’s any difference with the science and technology class in preschool depending on what education the staff has.
Four preschool teachers and three childcare workers in six preschools in a small municipality has been interviewed by qualitative interviews.
The result shows that the interviewed used activities, experiments, theme work and the free game to teach the children science and technology. Biology is the topic in science that is being worked the most with. Lack of knowledge, interest, time and staff are factors that are seen as obstacles to the work of science and technology.
My conclusion is that all educators working with science and technology in preschool but in different ways. One can see the difference between childcare workers and preschool teachers because of their knowledge of the subject. More knowledge results in better teaching.
