Förskollärares reflektioner om arbetet för hållbar utveckling i förskolan : utifrån det miljömässiga, sociala och ekonomiska området
Sammanfattning: The purpose of the study was to clarify and deepen knowledge about teaching for sustainable development in preschool. This was done by examining the working methods used and the factors that influence which of the three areas of sustainable development are highlighted in the teaching, and whether these sub-disciplines are given equal attention. The five respondents selected are all professional preschool teachers in private and municipal preschools without eco-certification. Data were collected using qualitative interviews wich were transcribed and analyzed according to thematic analysis. Furthermore, the results were analyzed and interpreted on the basis of sustainable development's three areas of economic, environmentally and socially sustainable development and also the respondents views on teaching for sustainable development. The results were also analyzed and interpreted using Davis’s (2010) view of children's agency for sustainable development. The result shows that the environmental area gets the most attention in the respondents' reflections in the study, closely followed by the social area. Furthermore, the results show that the methods used in the work for sustainable development in preschool are mainly to use digital aids and new technologies, role-plays, discussions, literature, recycling, source sorting, reuse and being in nature. The view of children's agency in the work for sustainable development varied between respondents and between different areas, but the children's interest was shown in the study to have a major impact on which area was highlighted. Other influencing factors were the influence of management as well as the educators own interest and knowledge.
