Abstract [en]

Background: In nursing education, theoretical and practical knowledge are intertwined and integrated in the prospective nurses’ lifeworld. To enable this, and to develop a critical reflective approach, students should adopt a critical attitude. This study aims to gain a deeper understanding of the character of prospective nurses’ critical reflection.

Methods: This is a descriptive qualitative study. Data were gathered using written narratives, individual and focus group interviews. Qualitative content analysis was employed.

Results: Three themes were identified: being open to changes, distancing oneself, and challenging one’s understanding. In the first theme, students’ critical reflection was expressed through an openness to changes of self-perception and openness to professional development during the education. In the second theme, critical reflection was identified as variations on distancetaking.

Inserting distance from a direct experience makes the experience easier to process, understand and relate to the learner’s concept of nursing. In the third theme, courage to question what was taken for granted is identified as a necessity to challenging self-understanding and willingness to engage in uncertainty.

Conclusions: It would appear that the academic part of training, with the possibility of reflection in small groups, provides students with conceptual tools for reflective learning as well as giving them the opportunity to relate critically to professional practice and to the professional nurse role.

Abstract [en]

This paper draws from a multidisciplinary research study that aims to identify and analyse democratic and didactic implications of different technological offerings in compulsory school teaching practices. The research study also aims to develop strategies to promote learning through open knowledge processes in Swedish educational contexts. The overarching goal of our research is to contribute to systematic and in-depth knowledge of specific, education-related challenges in one of today’s most important ongoing changes in schools, the implementation of IT. In this paper we report on the current state of practice concerning the use of technological offerings in school and its democratic and didactic implications to the aim of elaborating on pedagogical and technological challenges in the context of compulsory school.

Abstract [en]

The vocational education in upper secondary school contains general and vocational subjects.Its aim is to give the students relevant vocational competence and employability. This study investigates the nature of didactical choices in vocational subjects as described bystudent teachers (future vocational teachers). Social cultural approach and pedagogic content knowledge (PCK) are used as theoretical perspective and analysing model, respectively. The analysis shows that the choice of content in vocational subjects is the specialised vocational content as it relates to the general content. Teaching also focuses on silent knowledge as a useful competence. In the pedagogical practice the student and the students’ needs are central for teachers´ choices of methods and also the approach. The vocational teacher emphasises that the students develop relevant and useful vocational competence. Employability is related to the student´s possibility to succeed in the coming profession.

Abstract [en]

Information technology (IT) is a current development area in preschool and school, and in within the teacher training. This article presents a study of local school project in a Swedish context, with the aim to stimulate and develop teacher's information technology competence as a resource in teaching practice. These projects have been implemented in collaboration with a university and teacher training. The aim of the study is to create knowledge about the relationship between the conditions that higher education and academic practice make possible (in this case IT and scientific competence), and the professional practice the student teacher participates in and relates to. Two types of projects are identified, the strategic project and the practice related project. The study shows that the project has given the teacher possibility and mandate to develop and study technology resources in teaching practice and in activities related to teaching. The effects are however local without formal evaluation and dissemination. Academic practice as resource for planning, implementing, anallyzing or documentation is missing. Proposed teachers have not been involved in local projects during their school placed practice. Those obstacles average teacher's professional practice and academic practice in connection with school development need to be discussed and studied furthermore.
