With this empirical project we examine how children react to daycare rules about the use of
technology and whether these rules have influence on how the children play. We also examine
if there’s a difference between how children play with technology and how they play without
technology. Furthermore, we consider how the daycare teachers manage the children's use of
technology. We also discuss whether technology influences the children’s ability to interact
with each other.
In order to answer the problems of this project we have gathered empirical material on a
daycare by using two methods. These two methods are “semi-structured interview”, and
“participant observation”. Through these methods we have gathered empirical material in the
shape of field notes and an interview with one of the daycare teachers. We later analyzed this
material using theories by different theorists and the analyzing method “culture analysis”.
The main conclusion of this project is that the children follow the rules of the daycare, because
they consider the rules a normal part of the daycare. We can also conclude that the rules of the
daycare have significance for the children’s everyday life and whether or not they immerse
themselves in their way of playing. The rules also affect the way in which the children interact
with each other. It is not always the case however and therefore we can conclude that the rules
can have importance for the way the children play.
