Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate the technology teacher attitude toward the subject of technology and link this to the use of NTA (Science and technology for all) in the primary school (graders 4-6) technical education. As Teknikforetagen (2006) stress in their report, the subject seems to be an undisclosed topic that often is combined with the science subjects. There, the science-orientating subjects get a higher priority than the technology. According to several reports, NTA has had a positive result in the teaching it is aimed at. The method of study is a qualitative survey consisting of interviews with middle school technical teachers. The interviews consisted of both technical teachers who use NTA in education and technology teachers without NTA. The result shows that NTA contributes to more practical work in technology, that teachers save time collecting materials, but also that collegial learning in technology increases. Overall, none of the interviewed teachers uses a textbook as support in the teaching. It differs from many other subjects in elementary school. The interviewed teachers generally have a positive attitude towards the subject of technology.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka tekniklärares inställning till ämnet teknik och koppla detta till användandet av NTA (Naturvetenskap och teknik för alla) i den teknikundervisning som bedrivs på mellanstadiet. Granskar man det Teknikföretagen (2006) påpekar i sin rapport verkar teknikämnet vara ett undanskymt ämne som ofta står under NO-blocket. Där får de naturorienterande ämnena en högre prioritet än tekniken. NTA har enligt flera rapporter haft ett positivt resultat i undervisningen den är syftad till. Metoden för studien är en kvalitativ undersökning som består av intervjuer med nio stycken tekniklärare på mellanstadiet. Intervjuerna har genomförts med tekniklärare som använder NTA i undervisningen samt tekniklärare som inte använder NTA. Resultatet visar att NTA bidrar till mer praktiskt arbete i teknik, att lärarna sparar tid i att samla material men också att det kollegiala lärandet i teknik ökar. Överlag i teknikämnet använder ingen av de intervjuade lärarna en lärobok som stöd i undervisningen. Det skiljer sig mot många andra ämnen i grundskolan. De intervjuade lärarna har överlag en positiv inställning till ämnet teknik.
