Hva vet vi (ikke) om elevers opplevelser med friluftsliv i norsk skole - en gjennomgang av empiriske studier 1974-2014
The article aims to provide a systematic review of research literature on students’ experiences with school-based ‘friluftsliv’ (word used to describe a Nordic tradition of outdoor life). Even though 40 years have passed since the word ‘friluftsliv’ first entered the national curriculum in Norway and became part of the expected student experience, no such reviews of empirical research from schools have been conducted. The authors reviewed literature published between 1974 - the year ‘friluftsliv’ became a formulated goal in the new curriculum - and 2014. For this period only 24 studies, of which 18 were master's theses, met the inclusion criteria. The result shows that current research-based knowledge about students' experiences with ‘friluftsliv’ and nature-based outdoor education in schools is extremely limited, and does not allow us to draw synthesized conclusions. However, the analysis of the included studies revealed five themes that the article presents and discusses. These themes are learning outcomes, student involvement, assessment in ‘friluftsliv,’ students with an immigration background, and ‘uteskole’ (outdoor education as a methodology for learning different subjects).
