Teachers role in children's play : A study of educators view of their participation in children's play (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge about how teachers in preschool regard their participation in children's play. Through this study you will get an insight into how teachers' involvement affects children's learning. I have chosen to look at the study from a socio-cultural perspective.

The study is based on qualitative interviews with four pre-school teachers.

The result shows that teachers believe that it is important to attend in children's play to support, challenge and develop their play. One sees that teachers take different roles based on the needs of the children’s group, such as actively participate in the play, being a supportive teacher, serve as inspiration or to be an observer. This result also shows that by participating in children’s play, sometimes the play becomes a subject of teachers' control when the educator consider that some plays are better suited than others in pre-school.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att få kunskap om hur förskollärare i förskolan ser på sitt deltagande i barns lek. Genom denna studie får man insikt i hur förskollärars deltagande inverkar på barns lärande. Jag har valt att se studien utifrån ett sociokulturellt perspektiv.

Jag har använt mig av en kvalitativ intervjumetod som insamlingsmetod. Intervjuer har gjorts med 4 förskollärare.

Resultatet visar på att förskollärare tycker att det är viktigt att vara närvarande i barns lek för att kunna stödja, utmana och utveckla deras lek. Man ser att de har olika roller utifrån de behov som finns i barngruppen så som att delta aktivt i leken, vara en stödjande pedagog, fungera som inspiratör eller vara observatör. I resultatet ser man också att genom deltagande i leken kan leken bli ett föremål för styrning då förskollärare anser att vissa lekar lämpar sig bättre än andra i förskoleverksamheten.
