Abstract [en]

It is stated in the preschools curriculum that all preschool teachers should document every child's progress while at the same time respecting their physical and personal integrity while documenting. The purpose of the study is to investigate the possibilities of preschool teachers to take ethical standpoints while documenting. We have investigated what the purpose is with documentation and who the documentation is for, how preschool teachers describe their way of documenting and whether they take ethical positions while documenting and if so which ones. The method of this study is qualitative and our empirical material consist of six interviews with six preschool teachers on five different preschools. We have used the theoretical framework of the concepts child perspective and children's perspective, as well as realistic visual norms and relativistic visual norms in order to analyze our empirical material. We have concluded that the preschool teachers rarely make the children aware that they are being documented. Partly due to their unwillingness to disrupt the children's activities and thereby lose out on making children's progress visible, which is the entire purpose of documentation. Partly because they so rarely encountered children who have clearly shown that they do not want to be documented, which the preschool teachers believe is a result of the modern society and children being accustomed to be photographed and filmed. In our final conclusion our research demonstrates that it becomes difficult for preschool teachers to meet both curriculum goals simultaneously, to document each child's progress and to respect children's physical and personal integrity.
