Abstract [en]

Societal and technological changes have an impact on habits related to youth sport and leisure time. The internet-based character of leisure time has created new practices. Young people have to navigate within a disrupted landscape of time, place and space. The aim of this study is to explore views of leisure time, sport activities and PE participation among students aged 15. The results will be discussed from a critical sociocultural perspective with focus on how culture, structure and agency intersect. The findings will also be discussed in relation to a similar study conducted in 2007.

The project is a follow-up, cross-sectional study based on a longitudinal research project named School – Sport – Health, initiated in 2001. Eight semi-structured focus group interviews were conducted in 2016 (30 boys, 18 girls), based on a strategic sample of four schools that participated in 2001. Two of the schools reported high levels of physical activity among the students, and two schools reported low levels of physical activity. An inductive qualitative content analysis guided the procedure for analyzing the empirical material.

The results show that school and friends are central to the way students handle leisure time involving physical activities. The students strive to be independent, to experience development and belonging, all of which challenge the way organized sports are planned. For a number of students, club sports are still a dominant part of their leisure time, however not uncontested. Internet-based activities allow flexibility, where one can choose to interact across time, place and space, as well as across gender and age. The value of school PE is highlighted in terms of health and wellbeing. The results indicate tension between physical activities in a school setting and leisure time physical activities. Content and quality are related to experienced agency and structure. Schoolwork, experienced lack of time and development, play a more central role in students’ experiences of everyday life physical activities in 2016 compared to results from 2007.

Introduction

Several societal and technological changes have affected youth sport and leisure time habits. The netification of leisure time has created new practices and young people have to navigate within a disrupted landscape of time, place and space.

The overall aim of the study is to explore 15 year old students’ view on leisure time and sport activities. The results will be discussed from a critical sociocultural perspective with a focus on how culture, structure and agency intersect. The  indings will be compared to a similar study conducted in 2007.

Methods

The study is a follow-up, cross sectional study based on a longitudinal research project named School – Sport – Health, starting in 2001. Eight semi structured focus group interviews were conducted in 2016 (30 boys, 18 girls), based on a strategic sample of four schools that participated in 2001. An inductive qualitative content analysis guided the analyzing procedure of the empirical material.

Results

The findings show that school and friends frame what leisure time can be and are central departure points for how to act and handle leisure time activities. Lack of time interferes with the participation in organized club sport. The adolescents drive to become independent, to experience development and belonging challenge the way organized sport is figurate. Netbased activities represent flexibility, where one can choose to interact across time, place and space, as well as across gender and age. Club sport is still, for a number of students a dominant part of their leisure time, but not uncontested.

Conclusions

The findings indicate a new tension around leisure time content and quality related to practice, agency and structure. Furthermore school work and the feeling of lack of time and development, play a more central role in the teenagers’ everyday life year 2016 compared to the results from 2007.

Abstract

 “Learning nothing” in Physical Education and Health (PEH)? – a nine year follow-up study

The school subject Physical education and health (PEH) has during the last decades been under debate in several countries. Reports claim that students learn sport but not health. Literature also points to a gap between curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. Changes in society show new scenarios around health, wellbeing and illness among young people, and a growing uneven distribution of access to physical activity and knowledge in health. This leads to questions about students’ learning experiences from school PEH.

The aim of the presentation is to, with the help of a nine year follow-up study, describe and analyze students’ attitudes to participation and learning in PEH over the school years.

Method

The study was based on a population from randomly selected schools in Sweden, with students born 1991, 1988 and 1985. The year of the baseline study was 2001. Follow-up studies were made three, six and nine years later. The collecting of data was made by a self developed and adopted questionnaire with closed and open answers.The presentation will focus on the follow up study of the students born 1991, made six and nine years after the base line study. In 2010, 75% of the original population (1290) answered a revised, almost identical questionnaire. Frequency of data was analysed with descriptive statistics and cross tabulations. Chi-square was used for examining group differences *p<0.05 **p<0.01, ***p<0.001.Values >0.05 were considered as statistically non-significant (n.s.)

The results show a significant difference in participation pattern between male and female students, where 18% of the female students in relation to 8% of the male students, never or very seldom participated in PEH in their older ages. From 15 to 18 years of age, one third of those who experience that they learned “nothing” remained in this category. Leaving school, 21% of the students at the age of 18 thought that they knew well how to train and be physically active by their own. 2 out of 10 regarded themselves as not having this knowledge. Over one third of the students were uncertain of the relationships between health, life style and environment. The students’ general attitudes towards PEH in upper secondary school, as described in the open answers, have been categorised in two main themes: a request to get the opportunity to become more engaged in school physical activity, and a claim for a restructuring of  how PEH is organised and taught.

Conclusions

One conclusion from the study is the need for defined and understandable learning tasks with learning outcomes possible to be shared and assessed by both teachers and students. Possible pedagogical models will be discussed with the departure point from the concept health literacy and curriculum theory.

Abstract [en]

In Sweden almost everyone participate in youth sport at one time or another. In recent years, however, overall participation rates have declined and many stop early. The aspiration of the sport confederation as well as the Swedish state is that young people should stay longer in sport which raises questions about participation patterns during adolescence, the ease of joining a sport club, and the barriers to remaining a participant. Drawing on a nine-year longitudinal study, this article reports on the participation patterns among a group of 241 youth that were followed from 10 to 19 years. They took part in four surveys (when they were 10, 13, 16 and 19 years of age). The results show a clear polarisation, one fourth did not take part at all or had only participated for a short time, one fourth participated all the time from the age of 10 to 19. Few started after the age of 10. The pathways for those continuing were characterised by diversification and not specialisation.

Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on how 'ability' is conceptualised, configured and produced in movement assessment tools. The aim of the study was to critically analyse assessment tools used for healthy and typically developed children. The sample consists of 10 tools from 6 different countries. In the study, we pay special attention to content and evaluation methods. The theoretical analysis explores and discusses what kind of movement ability the tools construct. The theoretical framework is inspired by Bourdieu's concepts of habitus, capital and field which are used as analytical tools to explore how the testing processes and content shape what is regarded as ability. Our findings show both a great variation of concepts and evaluation methods and a narrow view of what is regarded as valuable to assess. The assessed movements are strongly related to traditional sports and construct a specific form of physical capital. None of the tasks assessed take place in natural outdoor environments. Open skills, rhythmical movements to music or tasks including a wider range of flexibility are also absent in the assessment tools. The explored tools and tests assess a limited number of decontextualised movements and produce a narrow view of 'ability'. Hence, the testing process itself often promotes a child who is physically mature and benefits those who have experience of traditional sports. In other words, the assessed 'taste for sport' and the 'embodied physical capital' construct what is considered to be legitimate knowledge in relation to movement and physical culture. Accordingly, the social construction of movement ability through assessment tools is far from a neutral concept and could affect how children see themselves and their 'ability'.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore the phase of the divergent physical education (PE) culture in Sweden through the enactment of gender and how boundaries are formed and defended by symbolic mediating status and monopolization of resources. The study departures from a literature review with an inductive approach. Inspired by the method of critical incidents technique specific events have been studied to explore the longitudinal phase and the enactment of gender. Five critical incidents demonstrates how difference and similarity were created, maintained and contested, but also how the dismantling of gender differences came to be enacted and socially configured in space and time. The findings of the study point to a slow-but-still ongoing phase of dissolving symbolic and social boundaries. Going for a gender-neutral PE culture in the future seems to require our ability to both be gender sensitive and gender bend in order to transgress traditional gender order.
