Purpose and goal

We develop products and services together with companies that make it possible for inclusive education in Physical Education in the school from a norm-critical perspective. To gain knowledge about which measures contribute to increased learning for children with and without disabilities in inclusion and increase participation in school and society. The project has elucidated how a norm-critical perspective challenges people to think about how Physical Education is made possible for everyone and how sports equipment is designed so that everyone can participate.

Expected results and effects

Two products and one prototype have been completed. The products are a Kids Sand Glove with an instruction folder and a Paralympic bench. A prototype Sportblock has also been designed. The project has entailed new collaborations between the Business and the University, Health Technology Centre, children, teachers, and the Municipalty. The children´s own role in the design process has been clarified and children with and without disabilities participated. We presented at research conferences, where the norm-critical perspective was emphasized based on the school subject of PE.

Planned approach and implementation

The Kids Sand Glove has been tested in 3 primary schools in Halmstad municipality among children with-and-without disabilities aged 10-15 years. The researchers filmed, interviewed and observed the children. The children gave development proposals and different perspectives on inclusion. Their voices were important for researchers and entrepreneurs to develop the ability to think in new ways. The PE teachers emphasized the need for further training and appropriate material for increased knowledge. The material contributes to adapting PE to everyone´s needs and conditions.
