Who Will Present It during the Broadcast? A Case Study at a Daily Activity Centre
Reichenberg, Monica
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v16 n1 p65-73 Jan 2016
The present study is an investigation of a daily activity centre (DA). The overall aim was to build a grounded theory that could explain why this particular DA deviated from the norms of Swedish group homes and DAs described in previous studies. These studies have suggested that the staff stuck to old routines, such as letting the participants fold laundry, set the table and clean the table. These routines did little to nothing to promote the skills necessary for participation in the society, such as reading and writing. Furthermore, I used visual ethnographic methods and interviews to capture the activities at the DA. My analysis showed how the staff and the participants at the DA were engaged in reading and writing activities, such as publishing articles, comics, broadcasting radio and web-TV. The main conclusion is that four factors facilitated participation: new technologies, IT competence, a culture of self-responsibility and autonomy/control.
