    Primary mathematics teachers’ responses to students’ offers: An ‘elaboration’ framework2018In: Journal of Mathematical Behavior, ISSN 0732-3123, E-ISSN 1873-8028, Vol. 51, p. 80-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Responding constructively ‘in-the moment’ to student offers is described as a critical, and yet difficult, aspect of skilful and responsive teaching. South African evidence points to limited evaluation of student offers in schools serving poor communities. In this paper, we present and discuss an ‘elaboration’ framework emerging from a grounded analysis of data drawn from video recordings of 18 mathematics lessons prepared and conducted by four in-service primary school teachers in South Africa. This analysis led to a categorization of the situations in which teacher responses to student offers occurred, and the nature and range of these responses. Three response situations are identified within the framework: breakdown, sophistication, and individuation/collectivization, with a range of response (and non-response) categories in each situation. Literature on responsive feedback is drawn in to explore hierarchies and relationships between the emergent categories within situations of elaboration. The elaboration framework provides a tool for lesson observation, and a model for thinking about developments in responsive teaching.

    Barn och vårdnadshavares minnen av deltagande i pedagogisk dokumentation2018In: Tidsskrift For Nordisk Barnehageforskning, ISSN 1890-9167, Vol. 17, no 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the article is to contribute with knowledge of pedagogical documentation with a particular focus on the importance of documentation from a democracy perspective. While there are many studies of pedagogical documentation, few studies explicit examine this practice from the perspective of children and guardians. Analyses, based on focus group data of children ́s and guardian ́s conversations from memories of the children ́s time spent in preschool in relation to educational documentation work, are presented. Pedagogical documentation practice is shown to contribute to the creation of a community of practice at the preschool, which in turn enabled democratic education.

    "That's the way it was": Children's and parents' reflections regarding pedagogical documentation2017In: Abstract book: 27th EECERA Annual Conference 'Social Justice, Solidarity And Children’s Rights', Bologna, Italy, 29th August – 1st September 2017, 2017, p. 38-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study aims to develop knowledge concerning how children and parents reflect on and make meaning of pedagogical documentation gathered in Reggio-inspired preschool projects. From a pedagogical documentation perspective, children are understood to be knowledge creators, it is therefore important to make children's voices visible (Dahlberg, Moss & Pence, 2001) However,questions have been raised about (a) if and how children are given opportunities to participate in the production of pedagogical documentation (Lenz Taguchi, 2012, Lindgren, 2012), and (b) the ethics of representing children in the documentation (Lindgren2016). Our theoretical framework is based on Biesta's (2006) concept of the rational community and the community-without-community. The study data was gathered through focus groups with eight children and their parents. The children and parents were askedto review samples of pedagogical documentation from the child's time in preschool. The documentation was also used as stimulus material during the interview. Finally, the parents were also asked to discuss with their children their memories regarding how it felt to be documented. Interview transcripts were subjected to narrative analyses. Informed consent was obtained from all study participants. Three themes emerged concerning the experience of working with and being a part of the practice of pedagogical documentation: a sense of context, the sense of participation and the sense of a way to explore life. Our analysis highlights that the children had opportunities to participate in the practice of documentation in a project and therefore their voices were supported in "breaking into the world"

    "Sometimes we have to clash": How Swedish preschool teachers' engage with cultural value differences2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research aims: This study aims to contribute knowledge about how preschool teachers engage with tensions stemming from cultural value differences among teachers, caregivers, and children.

    Relationship to previous research works: Motivating this work is current socio-cultural circumstances in Sweden in which preschool teachers are negotiating divergent curricular demands that simultaneously promote cultural diversity and a common tradition. Consequently, teachers are experiencing an increased burden to address societal expectations concerning cultural diversity without appropriate communicative and conceptual tools (Björk Willén et. al, 2013; Lunneblad, 2006).

    Theoretical and conceptual framework: We draw on Biesta’s (2006) – via Lingis (1994) - conception of the rational community (RC) and the community-without-community (CwC) as an interpretive framework.

    Paradigm, methodology and methods: Project data was gathered through a series of focus group interviews with teachers in two preschools in Sweden, using stimulus materials designed to elicit discussion about value conflicts and cultural diversity.

    Ethical Considerations: Informed consent was obtained from all study participants.

    Main finding or discussion: Teacher engagement with questions of culture and values were organized around discussions of actual and imagined disagreements between teachers and caregivers about activities with preschool children. Analysis through the lens of RC and CwC revealed that teachers on the one hand, reinforced societal values and avoided conflict through invocation of the language of the rational community; on the other hand, from a CWC perspective, they developed insights about the value of conflict as means of gaining insight into the perspectives and cultures of the caregivers, as well as about their professional development.

    Implications, practice or policy: Project findings have implications for the development of pedagogical and policy tools related intercultural processes in preschool education practice and research.

    Resan in i ett nytt utbildningssystem: En litteraturstudie om nyanlända elevers inkludering i Samhällskunskapsämnet för årskurs 4-62018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att utifrån forskning undersöka hur lärare kan arbeta för att inkludera nyan- lända elever i samhällskunskapsundervisningen för årskurs 4–6. För att få svar på frågeställ- ningarna i studiens syfte har en litteraturöversikt av forskning genomförts. Relevant forskning har varit antologier och vetenskapliga artiklar. Likvärdigheten är bristande i den svenska skolan och många nyanlända elever är varken delaktiga eller inkluderade i skolans alla ämnen. Sam- hällskunskap är ett komplext ämne och för många lärare uppstår svårigheter i att bedriva under- visning. Lärare kan därför få svårt att avgränsa sig på grund av ämnets breda innehåll. Vidare väljer många lärare att antingen fokusera på kunskapsuppdraget eller fostransuppdraget, vilket blir problematiskt då båda har en betydelsefull roll. Människor rör sig över nationsgränser vilket påverkar samhället men även den svenska skolan. Resultatet i genomförd litteraturstudie har visat att det finns många faktorer som påverkar inkluderingen av nyanlända elever i samhälls- kunskapsundervisningen. De påverkande faktorerna är nyanlända elevers erfarenheter men även deras språk-och ämneskunskaper. Resultatet tar också upp vikten av ett holistiskt synsätt i undervisningen.

    Vi bor i Sverige och här talar vi svenska!: En kvalitativ studie kring flerspråkiga barns modersmålsundervisning i förskolans verksamhet2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur förskollärare och förskolechefer möjliggör stöttning kring flerspråkiga barns modersmålsundervisning i förskolans verksamhet. Som metod användes kvalitativa intervjuer som utfördes med två förskollärare samt två förskolechefer på tre olika förskolor. Studien utgår från ett interkulturellt perspektiv som påvisar hur människor från olika kulturer interagerar. Resultatet visade att både förskollärare och förskolechefer var medvetna om hur det interkulturella perspektivet kunde tillämpas i förskolans verksamhet för att delvis synliggöra olikheter och likheter i barngruppen. Det fanns däremot en okunskap om hur förskollärare skulle arbeta för att stötta flerspråkiga barns modersmålsundervisning på bästa sätt. Förskolecheferna är däremot medvetna vid hur det flerspråkiga arbetet ska genomföras, men inte hur de ska fullfölja det i praktiken. Detta berodde exempelvis på utmaningar gällande brist på språkliga resurser i verksamheten, så som tolk. Social kompetens, kommunikativ kompetens och medborgerlig kompetens är viktiga begrepp som studien har utgått ifrån för att reflektera kring anpassningen av ett interkulturellt förhållningssätt.

    Resultatet visar att ett positivt samt socialt samspel i arbetslaget, barngruppen och med vårdnadshavare delvis gynnar miljön på förskolan, men också hur barn väljer att bemöta varandra och ta del av ny kunskap. Respondenterna är även medvetna om att deras förhållningssätt speglar de flerspråkiga barnens modersmålsundervisning, och därför försöker de vara goda förebilder samt anpassa modersmålsundervisningen till varje enskilt barn.

    Vi fann att förskolecheferna erbjöd förskollärarna utbildning inom flerspråkighet. Förskollärare fann ett gemensamt kommunikativt plan med vårdnadshavarna och förskollärarna valde att kommunicera med barnen med hjälp av multimodala verktyg. Hinder i arbetet kunde vara samarbetet med vårdnadshavarna och okunskap inom området samt kommunikationssvårigheter. Kollegialt samarbete där flerspråkig personal samverkar med enspråkig personal var också en lösning för det flerspråkiga arbetet om det inte fanns tillgång till tolk eller modersmålspedagog.

    Measuring self-efficacy, aptitude to participate and functioning in students with and without impairments2018In: European Journal of Special Needs Education, ISSN 0885-6257, E-ISSN 1469-591X, Vol. 33, no 4, p. 572-583Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Including vulnerable groups of students such as students with learning disabilities in mainstream school research, require ethical considerations and questionnaire adaptation. These students are often excluded, due to low understanding or methodologies generating inadequate data. Students with disability need be studied as a separate group and provided accessible questionnaires. This pilot study aims at developing and evaluating student self-reported measures, rating aspects of student experiences of school-based Physical Education (PE). Instrument design, reliability and validity were examined in Swedish secondary school students (n = 47) including students, aged 13, with intellectual disability (n = 5) and without impairment and test–retested on 28 of these students. Psychometric results from the small pilot-study sample were confirmed in analyses based on replies from the first wave of data collection in the main study (n = 450). Results show adequate internal consistency, factor structure and relations between measures. In conclusion, reliability and validity were satisfactory in scales to measure self-efficacy in general, in PE, and aptitude to participate. Adapting proxy ratings for functioning into self-reports indicated problems. Adequacy of adjustments made were confirmed and a dichotomous scale for typical/atypical function is suggested for further analyses.

    Developing the Relational Competence of Early Childhood Education Teachers Through Playworlds: Contributions From a Swedish Preschool2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Biesta (2006) argues that within the past two decades there has been a rise in the concept of “learning” and a decline in the concept of “education”. He calls this the “learnification” of education: “the translation of all there is to say about education in terms of learning and learners” (Biesta, 2009, p. 5). He argues that this is problematic in part because learning is basically an individual concept referring to what people as individuals do, versus education, which implies a relationship.

    The field of early childhood education and care is uniquely situated to respond to “learnification”. In this paper we challenge the view that teachers teach children in preschools, in an effort to replace it with the view that preschool children and their teachers are engaged in reciprocal learning and development. We do so by analyzing that ways that teacher participation in a pedagogical practice consisting of adult-child joint play, called playworld (Lindqvist, 1995), can support the development of teachers’ relational competence.

    Relational competence is “the skill of entering into and building relationships” (Aspelin, 2015, p. 35). Aspelin (2015) writes that “Questions about what teachers’ relational competence means, how it promotes students’ learning and how it can be developed in teacher education, further education of teachers and in pedagogical practices is largely unexplored.” In playworlds (Lindqvist, 1995) adults actively enter into the fantasy play of young children as a means of promoting the development and quality of life of both adults and children. Thus, in this paper we begin from a relational pedagogical perspective (Aspelin & Persson, 2011) where the concepts of co-existence and co-operation, in addition to “attitude to relationships” and “attitude in relationships” are foci. This conceptual framework is applied in the analysis of transcripts and field notes from a case study of three preschool teachers implementing the playworld pedagogy for the first time in their classroom.

    This case study consists of observations from a two-year ethnographic research project that took place in three preschools, all of which followed a pedagogy of listening and exploratory learning approach originated from the municipal preschools of Reggio Emilia. The research project was originally designed to examine if and how the teachers in these three preschools adopted and adapted into their own practices the Vygotskian-inspired playworld play pedagogy. The research study data was

    gathered through participant observation using a variety of documentation methods, e. g.: interview, field notes, audio recorded reflection- and planning meetings and teachers pedagogical documentation.

    Findings include the following: Relational competence developed through the fostering of trust and authentic/honest communication, but this communication was often difficult for teachers, pushing them to challenge each other in ways that made them uncomfortable; Relational Competence developed through co-existence, in which “attitude in relationships” had a potential to emerge; “attitude in relationships” occur in playworlds, in which teachers encounter each other and the children in ways that go beyond the “rational” and encourage ethical steps in the development of subjectivity.

    Mentorship programs in the manufacturing industry2018In: European Journal of Training and Development, ISSN 2046-9012, E-ISSN 2046-9020, Vol. 42, no 7/8, p. 455-469Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This paper aims to present a literature review of studies of mentorship programs in the manufacturing industry so as to lay a theoretical basis for learning at work.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A literature review with focus on mentorship programs in the manufacturing industry was used. A search for relevant peer-reviewed articles, in four databases, rendered 315 hits, but only one article dealt with mentorship programs in an industry similar to the manufacturing industry. Thus, it is concluded that there is a lack of research on this area. The selection criteria were broadened so as to include 16 articles on mentorship programs for learning at work.

    Findings

    Three dominant areas emerged from this review: definitions of mentorship, characteristics of a good mentor and mentorship program structures. The establishment of a mentorship program requires a clear purpose; contextual knowledge; and adaption to the profession, the organization and to individual needs. In addition to their findings, the authors discuss relationships in mentoring programs, what can be understood by “reading between the lines” and the ongoing digitalization of mentorship programs.

    Originality/value

    Mentorship has proven itself to be a superior way to learn on the job. This paper provides practical information about establishing mentorship programs in the manufacturing industry, with a particular focus on the moulding industry.

    Teaching finger patterns for arithmetic development to preschoolers2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we describe the empirical and theoretical meaning behind how finger patterns are taught to facilitate the development of preschool children’s perception of the first ten natural numbers. An intervention programme, informed by Variation theory of learning, included 65 five-year-olds and teachers at seven preschool departments in Sweden. The programme aimed at developing teaching activities and artefacts to promote children discerning necessary aspects of the first ten numbers. The design of the programme is significant to describe and evaluate as basis for forthcoming analyses of the learning outcomes, as a pedagogical approach that stands in contrast to common preschool teaching practice in Sweden is adopted.

    Structuring versus counting: critical ways of using fingers in subtraction2019In: ZDM - the International Journal on Mathematics Education, ISSN 1863-9690, E-ISSN 1863-9704, p. 1-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of using fingers as a key component in arithmetic development has received a great deal of support, much of which is based on neuroscientific evidence. However, this body of work pays limited attention to how fingers are used and possible different outcomes in arithmetic problem solving. The aim of our paper, based on an analysis of 126 observations of 4–5-year-olds solving a simple subtraction task, is to discuss different ways of using fingers, with some of the ways appearing more, and others less, powerful. The analysis suggests there is much more complexity to children’s finger-related strategies than prior research has indicated. Empirical findings in our study point to the decisive effects of different ways of using fingers, and in particular for either keeping track of counted units or for presenting a structured awareness of number. Three ways of using fingers emerge in the analysis, which are discussed in relation to their rate of success in solving the subtraction task and with attention to why the differences matter for the success rate. Through this discussion we suggest that the complexity of how fingers are used must be considered.

    Barns delaktighet och inflytande i förskolans fysiska inomhusmiljö2018Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka barns delaktighet och inflytande över den fysiska inomhusmiljön i förskolan. Det som undersöks i studien är vilket utrymme barnen ges för delaktighet och inflytande i planering, beslutstagande och utformande av förskolans fysiska inomhusmiljö, samt hur förskollärarna själva uppfattar barns delaktighet och inflytande i förskolans fysiska inomhusmiljö. Studien bygger på en fenomenografisk kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer där utgångspunkten är det interaktionistiska och fenomenologiska perspektivet.Resultatet i studien visar på att grundläggande begrepp för att möjliggöra barns delaktighet och inflytande i förskolans fysiska inomhusmiljö ärnärvarande och lyhördhet, föränderlig verksamhet, samt tillåtande och tillgänglighet. Resultatet visar också på att förskollärarna upplever en rädsla över att ge barnen för lite delaktighet och inflytande över förskolans fysiska inomhusmiljö.

    Assessing mathematical competencies: an analysis of Swedish national mathematics tests2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 109-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Internationally, education reform has been directed towards describing educational goals that go beyond topic and content descriptions. The idea of mathematical competencies describes such goals. National tests have been seen as one way of communicating these goals and influence teaching. The present study analyses Swedish national tests in mathematics, and seeks evidence about the extent to which they represent these competencies and may play a role in reforming teaching. The results show that the national tests assess all competencies. However, the study also shows a limited focus on the competencies’ interpretation and evaluation aspects. Thus, the tests do not fully capture the complex nature of the competencies. This may cloud the reform message and restrict the possibilities for the tests to function as levers for reform.

    "Gurka - xiyar, xiyar sa jag": En studie om pedagogers villkor samt strategier för arbetet med flerspråkiga barn.2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien är en kvalitativ studie med inspiration från det sociokulturella fältet. Syftet med studien är att skaffa kunskaper om hur pedagoger arbetar med flerspråkighet i förskolan med fokus på villkor för arbetet och vilka strategier som används. Frågorna som studien kommer besvara är vilka villkor pedagogerna beskriver som betydelsefulla för arbetet med flerspråkighet samt vilka strategier som används. Fokusgrupper har använts som metod för att samla in studiens empiri och har sedan transkriberats och analyserats. Analysmetoden som använts är innehållsanalys då denna passar sig bäst vid användandet av fokusgrupper. De teman som framkom efter analys av empirin är tid och engagemang som villkor samt trygghet och samverkan som strategier. Resultatet som framkom pekar på att det finns olika villkor i förskolans verksamhet för de barn som är flerspråkiga. Pedagogerna berättar om barnens olika förutsättningar och om de olika villkor samt strategier som pedagoger måste förhålla sig till i sitt arbete med flerspråkiga barn.

    The paradox of the flipped classroom: One method, many intentions2018In: Problems of Education in the 21st Century, ISSN 1822-7864, E-ISSN 2538-7111, Vol. 76, no 4, p. 451-464Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Flipped Classroom is a teaching model where content attainment is shifted forward to outside of class, to be followed up by the teacher in class. In Sweden this way of teaching has become very popular during recent years. But what is gained by this way of teaching? Research on the Flipped Classroom in the context of the Swedish High School system is close to non-existent; why studies within this field are of great importance. In order to find appropriate informants, an electronic survey was constructed. Informants matching the selection criteria were then selected for qualitative interviews. In total nine informants agreed to participate in interviews (Semi-structured) to describe their experiences from flipping their own classrooms. The informants reported that the transition from more conventional ways of teaching to using the Flipped Classroom entailed major changes. The informants pointed out that the process of moving away from the more conventional way of teaching improved their teaching. All of the informants expressed they all used the Flipped Classroom methodology but they all did it with different goals in mind and their approach varied a lot. By using the same terminology, it might seem that they worked with the Flipped Classroom in similar ways, but the results show they did not. Herein lies the problem: Teachers say they flip their classrooms, which they do, but they do not share the same goals or approaches, just the term: The Flipped Classroom.

    Developing social interactions through outdoor education in multicultural preschool settings: Teachers’ perspectives2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to identify and investigate preschool teachers’ experiences and views on the role of outdoor education on social interactions. The research questions were: How do the teachers conceptualize outdoor activities’ role on social interactions in multicultural preschool settings? How do the teachers foster social interactions through outdoor education? What kind of challenges have the teachers faced regarding outdoor education in multicultural preschool groups? Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five preschool teachers from three different preschools in a multicultural suburb in southern Sweden. The results showed that – despite children’s possible aversions to engaging in activities in the outdoors - outdoor activities are supportive of the development of closer bonds within the group. According to the teachers interviewed, the natural settings bring calmness and openness, therefore this environment facilitates social interactions among children. The lack of strictly preplanned activities offer children opportunities to follow their interests and to have shared experiences through the discovery of nature. Their willingness for collaborative explorations is a basis for joint play, discussion and group work.

    Förskollärares olika roller som deltagare i lek: En kvalitativ studie om förskollärares delaktighet i barns lek2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien syftar till att bidra till kunskapandet om förskollärares deltagande i barns lek. För att uppnå syftet har följande frågeställning besvarats: Vilka former tar sig förskollärarnas delaktighet i barns lek?

    Studien är genomförd med kvalitativa intervjuer samt observationer där förskollärares delaktighet i barns lek har undersökts. Deltagarna valdes utifrån ett strategiskt urval där syftet är att välja förskollärare som aktivt deltar i leken. Datainsamlingen är analyserad utifrån verksamhetsteori, särskilt Yrjö Engeströms modell av verksamhetssystem, som har sin grund i ett sociokulturellt perspektiv.

    Resultat visar att förskollärarnas delaktighet i barns lek kan beskrivas som fem framträdande roller: Verifieraren, Hänsynstagaren, Kunskapsförmedlaren, Relationsskaparen och Initieraren. Det vill säga att förskollärarna intar ovanstående roller i barns lek med ändamål att; se till att barn trivs i leken, deltagandet sker på barns villkor, förmedla kunskap, skapa och stärka relationer samt sätter igång en lek för att engagera och stötta barn.

    Differences in pre-school teachers' ways of handling a part-part-whole activity2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The data in this paper draws from an eight-month intervention study based on the idea that children need to discern the first ten natural numbers as relations of parts and whole to develop their arithmetic skills. In order to implement educational activities according to this conjecture, a group of Swedish preschool teachers worked closely with a research team, planning, enacting and analyzing activities. In this paper I describe how nine pre-school teachers, across 67 video-recorded films, handled one of these activities, called the ‘snake game’ with their groups of 5-year-old children. Using analysis based on variation theory, the results point to differences in the enactment of the ‘snakegame’ in terms of if and how the teachers foregrounded the structural aspects of numbers embedded in the activity.

    ”10-masken” och förskolebarns lärande i målstyrda processer2018Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    I forskningsprojektet FASETT (VR-UVK 2014-1791) undersöker vi 5-åringars taluppfattning och aritmetikfärdigheter och möjligheterna att genom målorienterade processer stötta barn i att utveckla framgångsrika strategier för aritmetisk problemlösning. I två kommuner har vi tillsammans med förskollärare prövat ut aktiviteter i syfte att utveckla särskilda förmågor som förmodas vara nödvändiga för framgångsrik problemlösning i aritmetik, såsom att urskilja tals del-helhets-struktur, fingertal samt representationer av tal. Barnens (N= 65) taluppfattning och hur deras förskollärare arbetat med förmågorna på ett systematiskt sätt presenteras i föreläsningen, med tyngdpunkt på vad som görs möjligt att lära i aktiviteterna och effekter för barnens utveckling av talförståelse och aritmetikfärdigheter. Aktiviteter som prövats ut i projektet är teoretiskt grundade i Variationsteorin (Marton, 2015). I projektet uppmuntrar vi användning av fingrarna som redskap för att strukturera tal och operera med tal. Flera av aktiviteterna påminner om bekanta lekar och spel från förskolan, till exempel tärningsspel, ”10-masken” och enklare räknesagor. I föreläsningen presenterar vi en fördjupad analys av aktiviteten ”10-masken”, hur förskollärarna iscensatt aktiviteten på olika sätt och vilken betydelse det har haft för barnens lärandemöjligheter. ”10-masken” består av ett snöre med tio pärlor, där ett antal pärlor göms i handen och resten förblir synliga. Uppgiften är att ta reda på hur många pärlor som är gömda. Detta är inte en ny aktivitet i förskolan. Däremot, indikerar vår analys, spelar det roll hur en aktivitet med så många matematiska idéer introduceras och tas om hand av förskolläraren i mötet med barnen. Baserat på resultatet kan vi se att ”10-masken” erbjuder en potential av viktiga matematiska idéer, som är av stor pedagogisk betydelse för barns matematiklärande, men det spelar en avgörande roll hur förskolläraren gör i aktiviteten.

    Different learning possibilities in preschool mathematics from the same task2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper one specific task in a series of tasks focusing on part-part-whole relations of the ten first natural numbers and finger patterns for structure number relations, is presented and discussed. The tasks were designed, planned and enacted in an intervention program conducted in Swedish preschool during an eight-month period. In the program nine preschool teachers worked in close collaboration with the research team in planning how to enact tasks with their 5-year-old children, in an iterative process. The specific task, called the ‘snake game’, consists of five or ten beads on a string, some of the beads where to be hidden and the children would find out the hidden part by using structured finger patterns. The task was designed in accordance with the variation theory assumptions that certain aspects need to be discerned as dimensions of variations. The aim of the paper is to examine which dimensions of variations that were opened up by the teachers and what was made possible for the children to learn from the enactment of the ‘snake game task’. The data set includes 67 video observations from the teacher’s enactment of the task. The results suggest that what seems to be a ‘non-complex task’ (five/ ten beads on a string) offers rich mathematical experiences and has potential to bring fore important aspects of numbers and number relations. However, depending on which dimensions of variations that were opened up reveals different learning possibilities.

    Gemensamt fokus på förskolebarns taluppfattning och aritmetiska förmågor: Ett samverkansprojekt där teori och praktik flätas samman2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I forskningsprojektet FASETT[1] flätas teori och praktik samman. Projektet syftar till att generera kunskap om barns tidiga taluppfattning, utifrån delvis andra perspektiv än de dominerande inom fältet, och se hur en pedagogisk verksamhet i samverkan med forskare kan bidra till barns utveckling av aritmetikfärdigheter.

    I projektet arbetade nio förskollärare och 65 femåringar på fem förskolenheter i ett tätt samarbete med en grupp forskare under en åttamånadersperiod. Deltagarna träffades kontinuerligt, diskuterade och fördjupade sig i aritmetiken med fokus på aktiviteter gällande de tio första talens del-del-helhetsrelationer. Aktiviteterna var till viss del välkända, men bearbetade utifrån tidigare forskningsresultat och variationsteorin (Neuman, 1987; Marton, 2015). Utgångspunkten och reflektionerna vid gruppträffarna var intervjuer av barnens olika sätt att uppfatta tal och lösa enklare aritmetikproblem samt lärarnas iscensättande av de planerade aktiviteterna. Genom att gemensamt diskutera de filmade aktiviteterna kunde aktiviteterna förfinas och förskollärarnas didaktik utvecklas för att möta barnens behov. 

    Pågående analyser visar att designen av projektet möjliggjort för förskollärare och forskare att i kollaboration implementera ett alternativt teoretiskt underbyggt sätt att utveckla barns taluppfattning och förmåga att   lösa enklare aritmetikproblem genom att exempelvis använda sig av fingrarna som redskap för att strukturera talrelationer och inte enbart räkna ’ett till ett’.

    Analysen av de barnintervjuer som gjordes innan aktiviteterna introduceras och de barnintervjuer som gjordes efter forskningsprojektets slut visar att förskollärarnas målorienterade processer med största sannolikhet haft effekter på barnens aritmetiska förmågor. De preliminära resultaten indikerar att valet av att fokusera på ett fåtal aktiviteter möjliggjorde för en djupare reflektion kring teoretiska antaganden och vad barn behöver få syn på för att lära sig om tal och talrelationer.

    Weaving in connections: Studying changes in early grades additive relations teaching2018In: South African Journal of Childhood Education, ISSN 2223-7674, E-ISSN 2223-7682, Vol. 8, no 1, article id a540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we present aspects of teaching that draw attention to connections – both within and between examples – in order to explore the potential objects of learning that are brought into being in the classroom space and thus what is made available to learn. Our focus is on exploring differences in teaching over time, in the context of learning study style development activity of additive relation problems in three Grade 3 classes in South Africa. In a context where highly-localised and fragmented instruction has been noted, this study reports on the nature and extent of changes in connections in instruction over time. The application of a coding framework focused on simultaneity and connections in teaching points to a richer range of structural relationships within examples, and more connecting work between examples in the second year in comparison to the first year.

    Forskningscirkeln som kollaborativ ansats för lärares kompetensutveckling2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Seminariepass 1b 1:

    Forskningscirkeln som kollaborativ ansats för lärares kompetensutveckling

    I den här studien presenteras samlad kunskap från ett projekt där lärare, genom forskningscirkeln som kollaborativ ansats, har genomfört undersökningar i praktiken. Forskningscirkeln som ansats har sin tradition i folkbildningen och bygger på emancipatoriska ideal, vilket innebär att lärare och pedagoger driver och utvecklar kunskap om frågor som de själva är intresserade av att undersöka. Ansatsens teoretiska hemvist är aktionsforskning och i synnerhet den inriktning som benämns som deltagarbaserad aktionsforskning (Participatory Action Research, PAR). PAR är ett samlingsbegrepp för de forskningsmetoder där människor som ingår i ett specifikt sammanhang, såsom skola, observerar, studerar och utvecklar praktiken tillsammans. Utforskandet av praktiken sker kollaborativt vilket innebär att forskningscirkeln sker i skärningspunkten mellan högskolan och skola och där kunskap samproduceras mellan lärare och forskare (Persson, 2008), (Lahdenperä, 2014). Handledarens roll är att vara gruppens facilitator och att bidra med att teori och praktik möts.

    Syftet med presentationen är att visa vad det kan innebära att utveckla systematisk kunskap med forskningscirkeln som ansats men också att diskutera forskningscirkelns potential som möjlig kompetensutvecklingsmodell för lärare och pedagoger. Detta görs utifrån presentatörernas erfarenheter från att vara handledare i forskningscirklar. Att delta i en forskningscirkel innebär att ständig bli utmanad av andras erfarenheter för att få syn på för-givet-tagna tankar om pedagogiska frågor. Detta sker i dialogisk form där både deltagare och handledare lär av varandra. Frågan som adresseras är:

    vilken funktion fyller forskningscirkeln som potentiell ansats för lärares kompetensutveckling på vetenskaplig grund och beprövad erfarenhet?

    Training the Next Generation of Early Childhood Education Teachers: Students’ perspectives on academic vs. practice-oriented experiences in university training2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The combination of theory and practice in all forms of teacher training has always been a topic of debate in policy and research. Research examining university training of preschool teachers in Sweden highlights problems in the application of theory in practice in preschool teacher training. Specifically, the kind of problem identified is the lack of opportunities given to students to apply the knowledge gained through the university courses during their internships at the preschools. As a result a “gap” is created between the theory learnt and the application of this theory into practice, which in turn limits the opportunity for professional development. The meaning of professional development is to improve the knowledge and skills that the students have about their profession. The aim of this study is to understand student perspectives in relation to the combination of academic vs. practice-oriented coursework in preschool teacher training in Sweden. Specifically, this study examines the preferences of undergraduate preschool education students in Sweden regarding academic vs. practice-oriented courses, as well as if and how these courses contribute to their professional development. Final year student of a preschool education program at a college in southern Sweden completed an online survey to assess their perspectives on academically oriented and practice-oriented courses of their program. Students, regardless of whether or not they had previous experience working in early childhood education and care, reported that practice-oriented courses helped them with their professional development. Student also declared that the theory learnt through their academically oriented courses generally proved to be applicable in practice. Two types of future research are proposed in order to capture a wider variety of student perspectives about their training program as preschool education teachers.

    Secondary school science teachers’ arguments for the particulate nature of matter2018In: Journal of Research in Science Teaching, ISSN 0022-4308, E-ISSN 1098-2736, Vol. 55, no 4, p. 503-525Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How do secondary school science teachers justify the model of a particulate nature of matter, and how do the arguments they use relate to historical arguments? To find out, we individually interviewed 11 in-service secondary school science teachers (certified to teach chemistry and/or physics in secondary school, and with 2–30 years of teaching experience) regarding their arguments for the particulate nature of matter and experiments that could demonstrate the existence of particles. The collected data were qualitatively analyzed. Three qualitatively different categories of arguments could be constructed from data: philosophical argumentsindirect experimental arguments, and direct experimental arguments. The indirect experimental arguments, which is the largest category, could be further divided into qualitatively different subcategories: non-specific research and experiments, and chemical, physical and subatomic experiments. Even though several experiments and arguments were suggested by the informants in our study, the arguments regarding the validity of the experiments were quite uncertain and vague. The experiments and arguments were used to corroborate the particulate nature of matter and taken for granted in advance rather than used to justify a model with particles. The outcome was discussed in relation to scientific arguments and experiments and in view of results from previous science education research. Based on our data, teacher education and in-service teacher training, as well as teacher guides, were suggested to be more elaborate regarding contemporary knowledge, with direct experimental evidence for the particulate nature of matter being presented.

    Abstract [sv]

    Alla lärare ägnar sig åt bedömning, oavsett årskurs eller skolform man arbetar i. Denna artikel syftar till att reflektera över innebörden i begreppet som sådant, problematisera varför man gör bedömningar i skolan, samt diskutera olika syften med bedömning för olika målgrupper.
