    Children's Perspectives on Health.: What Makes Children Feel Good According to Themselves?2012In: International Journal of Education, ISSN 1948-5476, E-ISSN 1948-5476, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this study is to examine children’s perspectives on health and what elements make them feel good. Health promoting contributions rarely emanate from children’s perspectives but most often from a child perspective, what adults consider children need in order to feel well. There are relatively few studies made from children’s viewpoints on health - children should be made more involved in the shaping of health interventions. The study was carried out at two nine-year compulsory schools in Western Sweden, 78 pupils aged 9 through 11years participated. To collect the material interviews was the principal source, and the result is mainly supported by an analysis of the contents from 52 interviews. What the children declared to be the most important element for health were relations. This circumstance was stated in 88 percent of the interviews, and it was in substance the relations to family and friends that were brought up. A condition to lift children’s perspectives is that they are taken seriously, that their part-taking leads to influence and a real utilization of their opinions. A conclusion from this study is that activities that handle health for children and young people should consider children’s perspectives: partly through focusing the work on promoting children’s social and familial relations, and partly to let the children participate more in the final shape of contents and working methods.

    Att bygga gemensamma miljöer: delaktighet och lärande genom dialogplanering2012In: Utbildning och lärande = Education & learning : en skriftserie från Avdelningen barns, ungas och vuxnas lärande vid Högskolan i Skövde, ISSN 2001-4554, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 12-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim is to investigate how dialogue planning can provide users and professionals with

    tools for learning and be a path to organizational development in the context of design and

    construction of a town square and a sports hall adjacent to a K-9 school.

    Design and construction was carried out in collaboration between a municipality, a building

    contractor, school staff and students. A model for dialogue planning using artistic practice

    and collaboration with an artist was applied to develop an authentic dialogue. An architect

    and an artist were project managers. Their role was to support students to formulate interests,

    needs and creative solutions. Awareness of the complexity of planning was developed.

    Students’ participation had major impact on the design of the town square. With support,

    students can give a qualified contribution, significant for design of physical environment.

    Students’ involvement contributes to the learning of professional partners. Learning takes

    place primarily at the horizontal level around the students. Learning can be seen vertically

    among representatives of the school and community. Among building producers horizontal

    learning can be seen with entrepreneurs directly facing students.

    Co-generative learning at the frontline of elderly care: options for full-time work in the outermost reaches of the organisation2012In: International Journal of Educational Research and Technology, ISSN 0976-4089, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 44-52Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    The proportion of elderly in the population grows all over the world which means a great challenge providing qualified health care, care in nursing homes and community care for the elderly. Staff in the elder care is predominantly female workforce with auxiliary part time positions and short training. Care work is often, not recognized as heavy work in the same way as male-dominated working-class occupations. From the stand point of management, the employers, home care workers are situated outermost in the organization. From the care workers perspective, however, they are on the frontline. In Sweden, for a long period, quite a lot of pilot projects to provide full time work in home care and nursing homes have been carried out. The purpose of this study is to examine how home care workers consider opportunities to work full time. What benefits could be anticipated, what are the obstacles, how should working conditions and environmental be changed for the care workers to accept and cope with full time employments? Further what training would be needed and how should education be accomplished?

    The study has been conducted with round table workshops with two groups of women, employed as assistant nurses or as unskilled auxiliary nurses. They express a strong engagement for care work. They also express a perceived competence from their experience on the front line, both for the hands on work and for higher level skills, for example of assessment and advanced commitments. Further they are voicing a disappointment in the employer regarding organization, equipment and support.

    The conclusions are, there is need for dialogue and cogenerative learning between care workers, the employer and education providers, both as a way to meet the challenge the increasing proportion of elderly imposes, increasing the quality in care work and as a way to provide care workers with better working conditions.

    Displaying Mathematical Literacy: Pupils' Talk about Mathematical Activities2013In: Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, ISSN 1927-2685, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 55-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to exemplify pupils’ mastering of mathematical literacy. The study is a comparative multiple case study. In pupils’ talk of mathematical activities aspects of mathematical literacy are discerned. A distinction is made between pupils: (1) pupils in mathematical difficulties, (2) pupils with another mother tongue than Swedish or (3) pupils without mathematical difficulties. The study was performed as a comparative multiple case study. The “cases” were constituted by the three groups of pupils, and these were compared. Seventy-two pupils in grade 5 in six different primary schools in Sweden participated: twenty-four pupils in mathematical difficulties (twelve girls and twelve boys), twenty-four pupils with another native language than Swedish (twelve girls and twelve boys) and twenty-four pupils without mathematical difficulties (twelve girls and twelve boys). After each of the performed lessons in which the activities were carried out the pupils were interviewed (groupwise in the above defined groups) about their experience of the activities. In the analysis of the results three ideal types were described, one for each group of pupils. The ideal types were discussed with relation to mathematical literacy.
