The outdoor education's impact on children with concentration difficulties : An interview study from pre-school teacher's perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

Children with concentration difficulties are to a great extent a problem in schools and therefore it becomes interesting to see how possibilities around these children can appear in pre-school. From a pre-school teacher’s perspective, the study aims to provide a deeper understanding of how outdoor education can influence children with concentration difficulties. The method of the study is a qualitative research run-up with interviews that intends to describe pre-school teachers’ views. What we applied for requires experience-based answers, and therefore, pre-school teachers with at least a couple of years experience of daily pre-school activity were selected. The result shows, among other things, how outdoor education is an important part of daily activities. Specific for children with concentration difficulties, outdoor education gives increased  possibilities for movement, fresh air and recovery. The concept of concentration difficulties is not used in pre-school in order to describe these children. In connection with outdoor education there should be rich variations of outdoor environment. In conclusion reflected outdoor environment that provides both free play and planned activities gives children with concentration difficulties possibilities to increase their power of concentration.

Abstract [sv]

Barn med koncentrationssvårigheter är ett framträdande problem i skolor och därav blir det intressant att se hur utvecklingsmöjligheter kring dessa barn kan ske i förskola. Studiens syfte är att utifrån ett förskollärarperspektiv undersöka hur utomhuspedagogik kan påverka barn med koncentrationssvårigheter. Den metod som ligger till grund är en kvalitativ forskningsansats med intervjuer vilka avser att beskriva förskollärares uppfattningar. Den kunskap vi sökt kräver erfarenhetsbaserade svar och därför valdes respondenter bland förskollärare med minst ett par års erfarenhet av daglig förskoleverksamhet. Resultatet visar bland annat att utomhuspedagogik uttrycks vara en väsentlig del av verksamheten. Specifikt för barn med koncentrationssvårigheter ger utomhuspedagogiken ökade möjligheter till rörelsebehov, frisk luft och återhämtning. Begreppet dessa barn. I samband med utomhuspedagogik bör det finnas variationsrika utemiljöer. En slutsats som kan dras från detta är att en, av förskollärare, reflekterad utomhusmiljö med både fri lek och planerade aktiviteter ger barn med koncentrationssvårighetermöjligheter att få ökad koncentrationsförmåga.
