The forgotten wording of the technology subject : A phenomenographic analysis of teachers’ and students’ perception of gender related education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete undersöker uppfattningar som finns hos lärare och elever kring fenomenet ”Skolverkets lydelser kring genus i teknikämnet på grundskolan och gymnasieskolan”. En fenomenografisk ansats har använts som teoretiskt ramverk och datainsamling har utförts på en grundskola och en gymnasieskola. De metoder som har använts är intervjuer med lärare, fokusgruppsintervjuer med elever, samt enkätundersökning bland elever. Analysen av forskningsmaterialet har resulterat i beskrivningskategorier utifrån olika teman som fram kommit utifrån de olika uppfattningarna. Både elevernas och lärarnas uppfattningar handlar om könsroller och genusrelaterad undervisning. Dessutom har uppfattningar om att könsroller förändras över tiden framkommit hos eleverna, samt uppfattningar om behovet av att locka fler tjejer till teknik framkommit hos lärarna. Examensarbetets slutsatser är att lärare uppfattar genuslydelserna som svåra att implementera och att de uppfattar detta innehåll som mindre viktigt än övrigt innehåll. Eleverna i studien har uppfattningen att det är viktigt att deras utbildning täcker alla delar av ämnets innehåll, inklusive genuslydelserna. Eleverna beskriver uppfattningen att de inte har tagit del av genusrelaterad undervisning i teknikämnet i någon utsträckning alls på grundskolan, och i mycket begränsad omfattning på gymnasieskolan.

Abstract [en]

This thesis examines teachers’ and students’ perception of the phenomenon ”gender related wordings in the Swedish National Association for Education curriculum for the technology subject”. A phenomenographical approach has been used as a theoretical framework for this study. Empirical data for the study has been collected in one high school and one uppersecondary school. Methods used are interviews with teachers, group interviews with students and student surveys. The analysis of the research material has resulted in description categories based on themes that arose from the different perceptions. The perceptions from both the students and the teachers concern gender roles and gender related education. In addition, the students expressed perceptions regarding gender roles changing over time, whereas perceptions regarding the need of attracting more female students to the field of technology were evident among the teachers. The thesis concludes that teachers perceive the gender related wording in the technology subject curriculum to be difficult to implement, and that this content is seen as less important than the other parts. The students in the study perceive gender related education to be important, and they express the desire that their chosen education covers all parts of the curriculum, including the parts regarding gender. The high school students describe the perception of not having received any gender related education in the technology subject, and the secondary upper school students perceive that they have received this kind ofeducation only to a very limited extent.
