Digital play as a means to develop children’s literacy and power in the Swedish preschool

Idag kom den, artikeln jag och min doktorand Leif Marklund (ni får läsa mer om honom inom kort, när han blir forskare i fokus på Förskoleforum) jobbat med sen före jul: Digital play as a means to develop children’s literacy and power in the Swedish preschool. I abstraktet säger vi:

This paper presents different angles on the subject of digital play as a means to develop children’s literacy and power, using an online ethnographical study of Swedish preschool teachers’ discussions in informal online forums. Question posts (n = 239) were analysed using the Technological Pedagogical Knowledge framework and the Caring, Nurturing and Teaching framework, with the aim of understanding how teachers intended to support children’s literacy development with tablets. Literacy development can be understood as a social practice that needs to develop along with changes in society’s demands on citizens. The results presented indicate that school subject oriented skills are predominantly present in the mind-set of these preschool teachers. When digital play is increasingly used for pedagogical purposes in preschools, that also means that preschools have expanded their opportunities to work with children’s literacy development. For preschool teachers, it is important to discuss how literacy development can be supported in a contemporary media landscape.

Du som är intresserad av att läsa kanske har tillgång till artikeln via ditt bibliotek eller liknande men om du inte har det kan du bara höra av dig till mig. Vi har fått särtryck som vi kan dela ut till den som inte kommer åt artikeln.
