Physical activity in after-school : A qualitative study of after-school teachers perception of physical activity (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this work is to investigate what after-school teachers from various schools and after-schools feel about the importance of physical activity. But also how they work to stimulate and support children/pupils physical activity development in the after-school center.

The work also highlights health from a physical perspective. The study provides a historic look of the conditions for the after-schools. Through qualitative interviews I want to find out how the after-school pedagogue thinks of physical activities importance for the health and development of the children. How they work with their new assignment Lgr11 to be a supplement to school. In summary the results indicate that all the respondents think that it is important to work with physical activity. Childrens interest have decreased in physical activities while the mobile, the Ipod and the computer have become more interesting hobbies. The leisure pedagogue likes to offer a “smorgasbord” to the children/pupils that contain various activities. It is very important that they are allowed to choose activity themselves.

The physical activity should be done in an enjoyable way. Some leisure- pedagogues thought that by being flexible in their planning, they could stimulate childrens interest in physical activity and also social interaction at the after-school center.
