27 SES 07 B, Learning Experience, Critical Thinking and Literacy
Childrens Use of different Medias, such as Literature and Film, has changed dramatically over the Last Years and their attitudes to specifically Reading of Literature has become less positive, especially in Sweden (Mullis, I.V.S., Martin, M.O., Foy, P., and Drucker, K.T., 2012). The Syllabus for Swedish Language and Literature for Elementary School includes Education about Literature and Multimodal Texts, such as Web Texts (Kress 2003, Barton 2007). From a Swedish Educational Perspective, it is important to consider the Pupils' Experiences when the Teacher plans the Teaching about Literature and other Medias (Chambers 2011). This study examines eight ten year old Childrens experiences of Literature, Movies and Social Media and the Childrens Experiences of those Medias. It considers Appleyards (1991) Theories about the Young Reader. It also examines how these different medias are used in the Education in School, according to the Childrens experiences and Point of view. The Study also investigates those Childrens opinions and experiences about social Medias, such as Facebook and Instagram, and their pedagogical possibilities (Jones, N., Blackey, H., Fitzgibbon, K., and Chew, E., 2009). The Main Topic of the Study is to invent what kind of Texts the Children are using in their Everyday Life and what Role those Medias play for the Children and what kind of Functions they have in the Childrens Life. The Second Topic is to investigate The Childrens opinions about how these texts are used in School.
