The importance of interaction : A study of social interaction between children and educator in play (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna empiriska studie har varit att synliggöra och undersöka det sociala samspelet mellan barn och pedagog, och vad det kan ha för betydelse för barns lärande i leken. I granskningen av samspelets betydelse för barns lek har vi utgått ifrån Vygotskijs sociokulturella teori, där lärandet sker genom möten och interaktioner med andra människor. Genom att vi använt oss av kvalitativa intervjuer med pedagoger som arbetar i förskolan, har vi fått ta del av hur pedagoger tolkar och aktivt använder sig av socialt samspel i sin verksamhet.

Resultatet i vår studie visar att det bland pedagoger finns en medvetenhet kring samspelets betydelse för barns lärande i leken. Den fysiska lärmiljön och pedagogers förhållningssätt framkom i resultatet som bidragande faktorer för att främja socialt samspel mellan barn och pedagog.

I diskussionen lyfter vi fram vikten av att pedagogen behöver vara mentalt närvarande, lyhörd och engagerad. Pedagogerna har i uppgift att stötta barnen i deras utveckling och att utmana dem att uppnå nya kunskaper, genom att medvetet främja socialt samspel mellan barn och pedagog.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this empirical study was to highlight and examine the social interaction between the children and the educator, and what it may mean for children's learning in play. When reviewing the importance of interaction for children's play, we have used Vygotsky's sociocultural theory as a starting point. According to this theory, learning takes place through meetings and interactions with other people. By using qualitative interviews with educators working in preschool, we have learned how educators interpret and actively make use of social interactions in their work.

The results of our study show that there is awareness among educators regarding the importance of social interactions for children's learning in the game. The physical learning environment and educators’ attitudes were revealed as contributing factors, promoting social interaction between children and educators.

In the discussion, we highlight the importance of the educator being mentally present, responsive and committed. Educator are tasked to support the children in their development and to challenge them to attain new knowledge, by consciously promoting social interaction between children and teacher.
