Abstract [en]

Teachers’ manner of teaching may have different consequences for meaning making in different educational settings. This is a comparative study with the aim to clarify and discuss how educational content is constituted in two different discourse practices. The approach used is inspired by pragmatism and the later works of Wittgenstein. In order to analyze how teachers and children/students constitute meaning, we use the epistemological move analysis. The epistemological moves delivered by teachers in conversations with children/students are analysed in order to understand how teaching activities interplay with the “how” and “what” preschool/students learn. The empirical material is gathered in a Swedish compulsory school (school years 7-9) and in a preschool for children of aged 1-5. The analyses demonstrate important similarities and differences between the two discourse practices. Finally, we discuss how these results can be used in order to understand teaching and learning processes in different settings.
