Learning - controlled or in collaboration? : A study about teacher´s apprehensions about teaching and learning (English)
This study’s purpose was to examine which main forms of teaching methods that occurs in the Swedish nine-year compulsory school and how often learning through social collaboration take place. The study contained literature and interviews with eight teachers. Our research-questions were: What is the teacher’s opinion about different teaching methods, their opinion about learning and teaching and if there were any difference between the teachers teaching younger or older students regarding teaching methods? Our conclusions of this study were that ”lecture-methods” is the most common among teachers. In the beginning of the nine-year compulsory school the teachers chooses and controls the student’s methods for learning. Later when the students gets older and more experienced the teachers expects them to take more responsibility and decisions of their own. Collaboration between the student’s occurred, but the teacher’s ambition seldom was that the students could learn from each other. The teachers purpose were that the students shall practice their social skills, cooperation and to form a strong group.
