Hoppa, dansa, gör vad du vill - en studie om skolans delaktighet i elevers fysiska aktivitet
Lately we have been drowning in reports on youth's lack of physical activity and what consequences it may have. As future teachers in physical education we believe that we have a great responsibility ahead of us working with these questions together with our future students. The purpose with this essay was therefore to try to find tools and strategies to help youths to be more active, both in school and on their free time. We also wanted to look in to how schools in Gothenburg work with these important questions. We tried to achieve this purpose by interviewing a number of headmasters to find out how their schools work with this. In our essay we also have listed a number of already existing projects in this field. Our result shows that the schools were surprisingly active and these kinds of questions have a high priority, and in addition to the schools own projects there are a whole lot of other projects on both local and national level for schools to participate in. The relevance for us as future teachers is in our minds obvious, especially for us as physical education teachers. We tried to get inspiration and ideas on how to work with these questions and also get insight in the real world. To get children to be more active and aware on the importance of these questions might be our most important task as future teachers. We have also come up with some ideas on our own on how to get students more active, both in school and on their own free time.
