Abstract
This Master’s thesis aims to examine how the archive educators whitin the public archives in Sweden mediate knowledge about source criticism for pupils in elementary- and upper secondary schools. Internet sites like Wikipedia and the social network site Facebook have been the primary inforamtion resource for children och young adults for many years. Previous Research and scrutiny have also shown that pupils and teachers knowledge about source criticism is bursting. The public archives in Sweden have for a long time offered pedagogical programs for pupils. It is Therefore of high relevance to examine how the archive educators whitin the public archives in Sweden mediate knowledge about source criticism for pupils.

This Master’s thesis aims to examine how the archive educators whitin the public archives in Sweden mediate knowledge about source criticism for pupils in elementary- and upper secondary schools. Internet sites like Wikipedia and the social network site Facebook have been the primary inforamtion resource for children och young adults for many years. Previous Research and scrutiny have also shown that pupils and teachers knowledge about source criticism is bursting. The public archives in Sweden have for a long time offered pedagogical programs for pupils. It is Therefore of high relevance to examine how the archive educators whitin the public archives in Sweden mediate knowledge about source criticism for pupils.

The archive educators that have been examined in this thesis are operative at Helsingborgs Stadsarkiv, Malmö Stadsarkiv, Landsarkivet in Uppsala and Landsarkivet in Göteborg. They are all public archives and offers pedagogical programs for pupils. The method used to understand how the archive educators works with promotion of knowledge about source criticism for pupils in elementary- and upper secondary schools are interviews. The theory being used to analyze and to compare the interviewed archive educators is derived from Terry Cooks article ”Evidence, memory, identity, and community: four shifting archival paradigms” and the article ”Archival science and postmodernism: new formulations for old concepts”. I have also used the terms ”Edutainment” and ”Tacit/experiential learning”.
A result of this study is that pupils and teachers have little or none knowledge and experience about archives and archival matererials. The archival educators are therefore taking into account pupils previous knowledge when they construct pedagogical programs for pupils that aims to promote knowledge about source criticism. (Less)
