The technological socio-materiality of kindergarten children’s conduct of everyday life

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review


The conduct of everyday life concept has been enormously fruitful for theorizing
how persons come to live their lives across diverse social contexts as
participants in and contributors to social practices. However, social practice
research still needs to investigate in a more detailed manner the relevance of
material artifacts for conducting one’s everyday life. Everyday artifacts such
as media technologies heavily shape the concrete socio-material arrangements
in specific practices, hence co-constituting the scope of imaginable
action possibilities. The presentation builds on insights drawn from a fourmonth
researcher participation in a kindergarten practice. It argues that the
relevance of media technologies can only be investigated in relation to the
various perspectives of the other practice participants. The main focus is put
on the children’s perspectives, as it is their conduct of everyday life which
tends to be most easily ignored when studying the subjective relevance of
everyday technologies in and across practices.
