Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka om pedagogerna medvetet stödjer förskolebarns språkutveckling genom att aktivera barnens koncentrationsförmåga med hjälp av instrumentalmusik. För att ta reda på detta genomfördes en enkätundersökning via internet bland pedagoger inom förskolan.  Resultatet från undersökningen visar att instrumentalmusik enligt pedagogerna kan användas för att stärka barns koncentrationsförmåga, samt att de anser att koncentrationsförmågan i sin tur har positiv inverkan på barns språkutveckling. Dock tyder resultatet på att inte alla respondenter gör den kopplingen hela vägen. De flesta ser sambandet mellan instrumentalmusik och koncentration respektive mellan koncentration och språkutveckling, men de kopplar inte ihop alla tre komponenterna. Resultatet tyder därför på att pedagogerna inte medvetet utnyttjar detta samband för att stödja barnens språkutveckling.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to inquire whether preschool teachers consciously support children´s language development by activating their ability to concentrate using instrumental music. In order to analyze this, a questionnaire survey among preschool teachers was accomplished. The result of the research reveals that instrumental music according to the preschool teachers can be used in order to foster children´s ability to focus and that they also mean that the ability to focus in turn has positive influence on children´s language development. However, the result indicates that not all the respondents make this connection. The majority of the preschool teachers get the connection between instrumental music and ability to focus, respectively the connection between ability to focus and language development. Yet they don´t connect all these three components. This indicates that preschool teachers don´t consciously make use of this connection to support children´s language development.
