Finding teaching materials that motivate students : A study of teachers' arguments when selecting teaching materials (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilka motiv lärare anger för sina val och sin användning av läromedel i grundskolans tidigare år. Intresse riktas mot även hur lärare argumenterar kring dessa val samt att förstå lärarens val och argument i relation till deras uppfattningar om lärande och undervisning i matematik. Särskilt undersöks motiven i relation till motivationsskapande undervisning. Jag ville ta reda på hur lärare använder läroboken i undervisningen, om lärobok används och om den kompletteras med annat. Med läromedel avses i denna studie det material som syftar till att hjälpa eleven att tillägna sig kunskaper i matematik. Exempel på läromedel som förekommer i studien är lärobok, laborativt material och informations- och kommunikationsteknik (IKT). Studien var genomförd med hjälp av en enkät med öppna frågor som har besvarats av sex lärare och med en telefonintervju. Det resultat som framkommit ur studien är att läroboken dominerar i matematikundervisningen. Resultatet visar även att läromedel valdes oreflekterat av lärarna. För att motivera eleverna att lära sig matematik använder lärarna olika strategier. Flera kontextuella och sociala begränsningar som finns i resultatet var bland annat lärarens bristande kunskaper i IKT och lärares antal år i yrket.

Nyckelord: motivation, läromedel, lärares syn, Paul Ernest.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate what motives teachers in primary school give for their choices and use of textbooks and teaching materials. The study focusses on how teachers argue around these choices and their choises and arguments in relation to their belifes about teaching and learning mathematics. Of particular interest are arguments related to teacher enhancement of student motivation. I wanted to find out how teachers use the textbook in class, if a textbook is used and if it is supplemented with another theaching materials. The term teaching materials is in this study used to include all materials that aims to help student acquire knowledge in mathematics. Examples of teaching materials that occur in the study are textbooks, hands-on materials and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The study was conducted using a questionnaire with open-ended questions that were answered by six teachers, and a telephone interview. That results emerging from the study show that the textbook dominates in mathematics education. The results also show that the teachers often chose textbooks and teaching materials without much reflection. To motivate students to learn mathematics teachers use different strategies. Several contextual and social limitations appear in the results, including the teacher's lack of knowledge of ICT and teacher's number of years in the profession.
