English abstract
The aim for this study is to investigate how entrepreneurial learning can be put in relation to working with technology in preschool. I want to investigate this through two research questions. Firstly, the purpose is to clarify what the entrepreneurial learning can mean for the work in preschool, but also to investigate how a working method with focus on technology in preschool can contribute to entrepreneurial learning. The motivation behind this study was mainly based on Ehrlin, Insulander and Sandbergs (2015a) study where they found technology and science as one way of working with the entrepreneurial learning. The survey, with a qualitative approach, was conducted with the help from a focus group with pedagogues working at a preschool with technology and science as a profile. The group met at two occasions and also carried out a task with the children between the meetings. The empirical data is presented based on three categories: - The teaching that children and pedagogues are involved in describes how the pedagogues discusses the organization of the preschool to create opportunities for teaching. - The communication on which the teaching is based on describes the pedagogue’s thoughts about the content of the teaching. - The teaching as a moral action describes the pedagogue’s discussion about their approach. These categories are based on the didactic perspective and Säfströms (2000) description of how teaching can be interpreted through this perspective. The result showed that the pedagogues found the description of the entrepreneurial learning as a way of putting the aim of their work into words, mainly considering the preschools profile. However, it showed in the survey that they experienced difficulties in working with technology in preschool. The pedagogues raised that this new way of working takes time to implement since the children isn’t used to solving problems with many possible solutions. In the discussion it was clear that the pedagogues linked the entrepreneurial abilities to their own role in the preschool instead of the children’s abilities. Finally, the pedagogues in this study saw great opportunities with the entrepreneurial learning at their preschool, but also possibilities to work with the entrepreneurial learning in other subjects.
