    Physical Activity and Mobile Phone Apps in the Preschool Age: Perceptions of Teachers and Parents2019Inngår i: JMIR mhealth and uhealth, E-ISSN 2291-5222, Vol. 7, nr 4, artikkel-id e12512Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND:

    Physical activity (PA) is already beneficial at the preschool age. In many countries, young children spend most of their days in the preschool setting, making it a common arena for PA interventions. Mobile health tools are becoming increasingly popular to promote PA in different populations; however, little is known about the interest for and how the preschool setting could incorporate such a tool.

    OBJECTIVE:

    This study aimed to examine how teachers and parents perceive PA in preschool-aged children in general and their perceptions of how a mobile phone app could be used to promote PA in the preschool setting.

    METHODS:

    Semistructured interviews were conducted with 15 teachers (93%, [14/15] women, mean age 43.5 years, 47%, [7/15] with a university degree and 10 parents [91%, 9/10] women, mean age 38.9 years, all with a university degree) recruited from 2 urban preschools in central Sweden. The interviews were recorded, fully transcribed, coded, and analyzed using thematic analysis by means of an inductive approach.

    RESULTS:

    The analysis revealed 4 themes: (1) children are physically active by nature, (2) the environment as a facilitator or a barrier, (3) prerequisites of the adult world, and (4) an app in the preschool setting-challenges and possibilities. Parents and teachers perceived preschoolers as being spontaneously physically active; however, high-intensity PA was perceived as low. The PA was specifically performed during the day in the preschool. Identified facilitators of PA were access to safe and engaging outdoor environments such as forests, spacious indoor areas, and adult involvement. Adult involvement was considered especially important for children preferring sedentary activities. Identified barriers for PA were restricted indoor and outdoor space, rules for indoor activities, and lack of adult involvement because of time constraints. The teachers perceived that they had limited skills and experiences using apps in general, although they also acknowledged the increasing role of technological tools in the curriculum. Thus, the teachers expressed an interest for an app designed as a support tool for them, especially for situations when PA was limited because of perceived barriers. They suggested the app to include accessible information regarding the health benefits of PA in children linked to a library of activities for different settings and seasons. Parents suggested interactive app features including problem-solving tasks and music and dance, but not video clips as they made children passive.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    Vigorous PA was perceived as low in preschool-aged children. Future tailoring of interventions in the preschool setting should work around barriers and support facilitators to PA, especially PA of high intensity. In such work, an app could serve as a source of inspiration for PA in different ages, settings, and seasons and thus reduce environmental and structural inequalities in the preschool setting.

    Gamification of health education: Schoolchildren’s participation in the development of a serious game to promote health and learning2018Inngår i: Health Education, ISSN 0965-4283, E-ISSN 1758-714X, Vol. 118, nr 4, s. 354-368Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The use of modern technology has many challenges and risks. However, by collaborating with schoolchildren, ideas to effectively promote health and learning in school can be identified. This study aimed to examine how a participatory approach can deepen the understanding of how schoolchildren relate to and use gamification as a tool to promote physical activity and learning.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Inspired by the concept and process of empowerment and child participation, the methodological focus of this study was on consulting schoolchildren. During a 2-month period, 18 schoolchildren (10–12-years-old) participated in workshops to create game ideas that would motivate them to be physically active and learn in school.

    Findings

    The phenomenological analysis resulted in one main theme, ‘Playing games for fun to be the best I can be’. This consisted of four themes with two sub-themes each. The findings offer insights on how to increase physical activity and health education opportunities using serious games in school.

    Originality/value

    The knowledge gained provides gamification concepts and combinations of different technological applications to increase health and learning, as well as motivational aspects suggested by the schoolchildren. The findings are discussed with health promotion and health education in mind.

    From rocking horse to rocking chair in good health: research methods for intergenerational knowledge sharing in health promotion2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this presentation is to discuss research methods for data collection togive voice throughout the lifespan including children, adults and elderly. More specifically,the aim is to present research methods to capture intergenerational experiences ofpsychosocial well-being, and transformation of knowledge between age groups. Subjectivewell-being is people’s positive evaluation of their lives including pleasant emotions,fulfillment and satisfaction. The methods are based on the concept of salutogenese, focusingon empowerment combining written and oral, individual and group methods to access variousforms of communication. The focus is on self-determination, ability to influence andparticipation as dimensions of empowerment, which lead us to an approach that is solutionfocusedwith a starting point in the participants’ own experiences of psychosocial well-being.First reflective narratives – open letters – are offered to the children, adults and elderly as away to share their experiences, thoughts and ideas on how to amplify health and well-being.Then participants meet in different constellations, focus groups, to share their healthpromoting experiences first with each homogeneous group; children, adults and elderly, thenin mixed age groups. The purpose of the heterogeneous focus groups are to develop the openletters, with health promotion ideas the individual participants have written, in order todeepen the understanding of how health promotion activities can be designed in differentcontexts. The purpose of the homogeneous focus groups are to make knowledgetransformation possible between different age groups, both as a way to enrich the discussionabout the topic as well as to empower the participants. Based on research showing thatpsychosocial well-being increase when people are listened to, taken seriously and have thepossibility to participate, these research methods may not only be ways to collect researchdata but promote health and well-being as well.

    Physiotherapists enabling school children's physical activity using social cognitive theory, empowerment and technology2017Inngår i: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177, Vol. 19, nr 3, s. 147-153Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To contribute knowledge concerning how physiotherapists using social cognitive theory, empowerment and information and communication technology can promote children’s physical activity in a school context.

    Methodology: Four studies were conducted in the northern part of Sweden and a qualitative discourse analysis of the results from all four studies was performed to enable a more comprehensive understanding. Three of the studies involved children, and one study involved parents.

    Major findings: The findings formed three themes: A, Acknowledging empowerment; B, Bonded forces overcame barriers; and C, Competence and motivation enable change. The first theme includes the act of creating the intervention using an empowerment approach. The second theme concerns barriers to being physically active and social support from parents and peers regarding physical activity promotion. The third theme concerns motivation and associated personal factors, such as self-efficacy.

    Principal conclusion: This course of action might be a way for physiotherapists to promote children’s physical activity using social cognitive theory, empowerment and information and communication technology in a school context. An empowerment approach that includes the formation of partnerships with children is a promising avenue for developing physical activity interventions in schools. In addition, physical activity interventions should attempt to build on children’s self-efficacy and make physical activity opportunities fun and enjoyable.

    Promoting adolescents' physical activity @ school2015Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this thesis was to explore the development of a health-promoting intervention that uses empowerment and information and communication technology, to examine the impact of the intervention and to describe adolescents' and parents' experiences of the intervention. This thesis includes four studies, three of which used a qualitative approach (I, III and IV) and one of which used a mixed method approach (II). Three of the studies involved adolescents (I-III), and one study involved parents (IV).Data were generated using focus groups and analyzed using latent content analysis (study I). Physical activity, self-efficacy, social support, and attitude data were collected before and after the intervention and analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistics (study II). Adolescents were interviewed and the data were analyzed using latent content analysis (study III). The parents were interviewed and the data were analyzed using latent content analysis (study IV). The findings formed three themes: A, Acknowledging empowerment andphysical activity; B, Bonded forces overcame barriers; and C, Competence andmotivation enable change. The first theme concerns behavior regarding health promotion, specifically physical activity. That theme includes the act of creating the intervention using an empowerment approach and the physical activity behavior after the intervention. The second theme concerns barriers to being physically active and social support from parents and peers regarding physical activity promotion. The third theme concerns motivation and associated personal factors, such as knowledge and self-efficacy.The main conclusion of this thesis is that it is possible to develop anempowerment-inspired health-promoting intervention with a positive impact.Furthermore, interventions that aim to promote physical activity among adolescents should preferably include information and communication technology from the adolescents’ reality, involve actions that stimulate the participation of both parents and peers and be school-based.

    The Praise and Price of Pokémon GO: A Qualitative Study of Children's and Parents' Experiences.2018Inngår i: JMIR Serious Games, E-ISSN 2291-9279, Vol. 6, nr 1, artikkel-id e1Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Physical activity has multiple health benefits; however, the majority of children around the world do not attain the recommended levels of daily physical activity. Research has shown that the game Pokémon GO has increased the amount of physical activity of players and that the game has the potential to reach populations that traditionally have low levels of physical activity. Therefore, there is a need to understand which game components can promote initial and sustained physical activity. By using a qualitative research approach, it is possible to achieve rich descriptions and enhance a deep understanding of the components promoting physical activity among children in a game such as Pokémon GO.

    Objective: The objective of this study was to explore children’s and parents’ experiences playing Pokémon GO.

    Methods: Eight families comprising 13 children (aged 7-12 years) and 9 parents were selected using purposeful sampling. Data collected using focus groups were analyzed using qualitative latent content analysis.

    Results: The following three themes were revealed: (1) exciting and enjoyable exploration; (2) dangers and disadvantages; and (3) cooperation conquers competition. The first centers around the present and possible future aspects of Pokémon GO that promote physical activity. The second focuses on unwanted aspects and specific threats to safety when playing the game. The third shows that cooperation and togetherness are highly valued by the participants and that competition is fun but less important.

    Conclusions: Components from Pokémon GO could enhance the efficacy of physical activity interventions. Cooperation and exploration are aspects of the game that preferably could be transferred into interventions aimed at promoting children’s physical activity.

    Fun, feasible and functioning: Students’ experiences of a physical activity intervention2014Inngår i: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177, Vol. 16, nr 4, s. 194-200Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe students’ experiences of participating in a physical activity (PA) intervention. Methodology: A purposive sampling was used; 14 students (four boys and 10 girls) were interviewed and the collected data was analysed using qualitative content analysis. Major findings: One main theme was identified: fun, feasible and functioning. The following two subthemes also emerged: the multi-component intervention fits several, but not all, and manageable measuring can also be motivating. The main theme elucidates that fun was an important factor for joining the study; the students also experienced he empowerment-inspired intervention and the data collection to be fun and feasible. According to the students, the intervention was functioning since they experienced that it increased their PA. Principal conclusions: An empowerment approach that includes forming partnerships with students is a promising avenue for developing PA interventions for schools, regardless of whether the person concerned is a parent, teacher, school nurse or physiotherapist, but one size will never fit all.

    Abstract [en]

    Many unhealthy behaviors are created during adolescence and follow the individual into adulthood. In addition, health behaviors often occur in clusters as those who are inactive are more likely to eat unhealthy food and smoke. This makes the early foundation of healthy behaviors vital. The aim was to describe and develop an understanding of adolescents' awareness and experiences concerning health promotion. Data was collected using focus groups with a total of 28 seventh graders and was analysed with latent qualitative content analysis. One main theme was identified; being competent, ambivalent and creative at the same time. The following three subthemes also emerged: being a digital native for better and for worse, knowing what is healthy, and sometimes doing it, and considering change and having ideas of how change could be supported. The main theme elucidates how the majority of students were informed and able but they did not always prioritize their health. The concept of health promotion relies upon the engagement of the individual; however, although the students had clear ideas about how they would like to change their own behaviors, they felt a need for support. Interestingly, the students were able to make several suggestions about the kind of support that would make a difference to their adoption to more healthy modes of living. They suggested information and communication technology (ICT), for example encouraging text messages (SMS), and social support, for example parents setting rules and peers inspiring them to adhere to a healthy behavior. The knowledge gained from this study echoes our view of inclusion and this could be helpful for those who encounter the challenge of promoting health among adolescents

    Parent participation plays an important part in promoting physical activity2015Inngår i: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 10, artikkel-id 27397Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Although physical activity (PA) is an important and modifiable determinant of health, in Sweden only 15% of boys and 10%of girls aged 15 years old achieve the recommended levels of PA 7 days per week. Adolescents’ PA levels are associated withsocial influence exerted by parents, friends, and teachers. The purpose of this study was to describe parents’ experiencesof being a part of their adolescents’ empowerment-inspired PA intervention. A qualitative interview study was performedat a school in the northern part of Sweden. A total of 10 parents were interviewed, and the collected data were analyzedwith qualitative content analysis. Three subthemes were combined into one main theme, demonstrating that parents are oneimportant part of a successful PA intervention. The life of an adolescent has many options and demands that make it difficultto prioritize PA. Although parents felt that they were important in supporting their adolescent, a successful PA interventionmust have multiple components. Moreover, the parents noted that the intervention had a positive effect upon not only theiradolescents’, but also their own PA. Interventions aimed at promoting PA among adolescents should include measures tostimulate parent participation, have an empowerment approach, and preferably be school-based.

    Active School Transportation in Winter Conditions: Biking Together is Warmer2019Inngår i: International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, ISSN 1661-7827, E-ISSN 1660-4601, Vol. 16, nr 2, artikkel-id 234Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a decline in children’s use of active school transportation (AST) while there is also limited research concerning AST in winter conditions. This study aimed to explore the prerequisites and experiences of schoolchildren and parents participating in an empowerment- and gamification-inspired intervention to promote students’ AST in winter conditions. Methods: Thirty-five students, who were aged 12–13 years, and 34 parents from the north of Sweden participated in the study. Data were collected using photovoice and open questions in a questionnaire and analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Results: The results show that involvement and togetherness motivated the students to use AST. In addition, during the project, the parents changed to have more positive attitudes towards their children’s use of AST. The students reported that using AST during wintertime is strenuous but rewarding and imparts a sense of pride. Conclusion: Interventions for increasing students’ AST in winter conditions should focus on the motivational aspects for both children and parents. For overcoming parental hesitation with regards to AST during winter, addressing their concerns and empowering the students are key factors. To increase the use of AST all year around, targeting the challenges perceived during the winter is especially beneficial.

    Moving From Idea to Action: Promoting Physical Activity by Empowering Adolescents2014Inngår i: Health Promotion Practice, ISSN 1524-8399, E-ISSN 1552-6372, Vol. 15, nr 6, s. 812-818Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Physical activity provides fundamental health benefits for children and youth. The aim of the study was to explore the possibility of conducting an empowerment-inspired intervention and examine the impact of the intervention in promoting moderate and vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among adolescents. Method. A nonrandomized trial with a concurrent control group was carried out. Physical activity data were collected before and after the intervention with daily questions by short message service. Self-efficacy, social support, and attitude were also measured before and after the intervention since they were possible mediators. Results. The intervention was created by the students, the researchers, and the teachers using an empowerment-based approach. Students in the intervention group (n = 21) increased their MVPA on average by 4.9 (SD = 28.9) minutes per day, and students in the control group (n = 25) reduced their MVPA on average by 25.4 (SD = 23.0) minutes per day (p = .000). Conclusions. The intervention might have contributed to a promotion of physical activity among students in the intervention group. The most valuable contribution this study provides is the knowledge that it is possible to develop and conduct an empowerment-inspired intervention to promote adolescent physical activity.

    One Step Forward: Development of a Program Promoting Active School Transportation2018Inngår i: JMIR Research Protocols, ISSN 1929-0748, E-ISSN 1929-0748, Vol. 7, nr 5, artikkel-id e123Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Physical activity promotes health and learning. However, up to 80% of the children in industrialized countries do not achieve the recommended level of daily physical activity. By encouraging children to use active school transportation (AST), it is possible to increase their overall physical activity.

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper was to present the development of an AST intervention using Intervention Mapping (IM) to promote children's physical activity.

    METHODS: The principles of IM were applied to guide the development of the intervention. The process was divided into 3 phases. First, a literature review and collection of experiences of stakeholders were carried out to gain a broad perspective on the problem and possible solutions. Thereafter, an analysis of the critical environmental and behavioral factors affecting outcome was conducted, which guided the choice of tangible components of the intervention. Finally, a plan of evaluation and implementation was established.

    RESULTS: A structured program to increase AST among children was developed, consisting of 3 subsequent phases that are described in detail. Implementation took place, and evaluation of the intervention is being carried out.

    CONCLUSIONS: IM proved to be a valuable method to develop a structured AST intervention for children. By following the steps of the IM process, it became evident that empowerment and gamification are 2 promising avenues to consider when designing AST interventions in a school context. By engaging end users and including important agents, such as parents and teachers, who control the environmental factors, the possibility to design a sustainable program increases. In addition, gamification made it possible to integrate learning into AST, which could motivate schools to devote time and effort to implementing this program.

    Physically inactive adolescents’ experiences of engaging in physical activity2019Inngår i: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This study aimed to describe physically inactive adolescents’ experiences and reflections about engaging in physical activity. Methods: Nine graduate students from the third year of upper secondary school (six women and three men) participated in this study. Narrative interviews were used for data collection and qualitative content analysis was used to analyse the interviews. Results: The analysis revealed three themes ‘Acknowledging resistance and barriers to performing physical activity’, ‘Knowing that it is good is not enough’, and ‘Feeling included and accepted is fun and motivating’. These themes show that the adolescent’s experienced barriers, acknowledged pros and cons and identified possibilities to be physically active. Conclusions: Identifying experiences that impact on inactive adolescents’ attitude and willingness to perform physical activity can be useful to understand the needs of the individual. By relating these experiences to the different stages of the transtheoretical model, this study could provide valuable knowledge for designing future interventions to enhance physical activity in this target group.

    Active School Transportation is an Investment in School Health2018Inngår i: Health Behavior and Policy Review, ISSN 2326-4403, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 88-97Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: In this study, we aimed to explore the experiences of schoolchildren and teachers participating in an empowerment- and gamification-inspired program to promote children's active school transportation. Methods: Data were collected using focus groups with 32 schoolchildren and 2 teachers. Content analysis revealed 2 themes and 5 subthemes. Results: Integrating learning into the program increased student engagement and enhanced learning outcomes. The program also created additional value beyond physical activity, such as togetherness, readiness to learn, and changed parental attitudes. Conclusions: Combining learning with physical activity through gamification is a promising method for promoting active school transportation. The time and energy spent increasing active school transportation enrich learning activities and health and are therefore well invested

    Children’s motivation overcame parental hesitation: active school transportation in Sweden2018Inngår i: Health Promotion International, ISSN 0957-4824, E-ISSN 1460-2245Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)

    Abstract

    To meet the recommendation of 60 min of daily physical activity, children can be encouraged to walk or bike to school, which is known as active school transportation (AST). The aim of this study was to describe parents’ attitudes to AST and to explore their experience when implementing interventions to promote it. To explore parent’s experiences, we collected pre- and post-intervention data via three questionnaires, using both closed and open questioning techniques. The pre-intervention questionnaire informed development of the intervention. Open-ended questions (pre- and post-) were analyzed with qualitative content analysis. In the intervention, there were 42 children, with 63 parents answering pre-intervention questionnaires and 44 answering a post-intervention questionnaire. The analysis resulted in one main theme: children’s motivation and active travel reduces parents’ perception of problems, along with three subthemes: parental concerns and suggestions for solutions, children’s motivation guides parental choice of transport mode, and trying it changes attitudes. In conclusion, it is beneficial to use the enthusiasm and motivation of children to overcome parental hesitation with AST. In addition, it is critical to acknowledge their concerns, as they are the gatekeepers to the children’s use of AST and it is valuable to empower parents when designing relevant interventions. Interventions to increase AST could preferably target changed behavior, and parents’ confidence in their children’s ability to use active transport in a safe and effective way, vs focusing on changing parental attitudes.
