Sport Education in a Higher Education physical activity course

The present research had the purpose to analyze how students perceived a physical activity (PA) course in higher education that used the Sport Education (SE) model. The study addressed: i) Students overall enjoyment; ii) Students’ skill acquisition self- perception; iii) Students’ game rules knowledge self-perception; iv) Students’ instructional preference. Twenty-six students from an American university located in the Southern region attended this course. The Futsal (indoor-soccer) course offered two 75 minutes class per week. Two forms of data collection were used: a five-point Likert- type scale survey and a post-course interview. Students reported to have a very high enjoyment in all six major features of the SE model. In addition, statistical significance was reached when students reported their perceived skill acquisition and game rules knowledge acquisition. Students also reported to prefer SE when comparing to other physical activity courses that used a traditional pedagogy.

Rethinking sport teaching in physical education

Rethinking sport teaching in physical education

The data indicated that there are complexities in PETE-PS teachers translating the vision of sport teaching encountered during course work into the enacted curriculum in schools. Curtner-Smith et al. (2006), for example, provide a critical account of beginning teachers attempting to deliver SE while facing many of the issues raised in this research– acculturation, professional socialisation and organisational socialisation. They found that the teachers interviewed delivered SE as either a full version maintaining fidelity with the tenets of the model, a watered down version that failed to include elements that transform traditional sport teaching into SE, or a ‗cafeteria‘ approach incorporating parts of SE into a traditional sport teaching model. The beginning teachers who employed the full version of SE were described as entering PETE ―op en to new idea s‖ (p. 104). While the complexities confronting PETE-PS teachers translating the vision of sport teaching encountered during course work into the enacted curriculum in schools do not necessarily act as a direct block to progressive sport teaching they can be seen as diverting the vision for sport teaching from education in, through and about movement and constrain sport teaching for PETE-PS teachers. The analysis of the data highlighted the

Investigation of Physical Activity Report Card Applications by Physical Education and Sport Teachers

Investigation of Physical Activity Report Card Applications by Physical Education and Sport Teachers

In this study, the opinions of physical education and sports teachers about physical activity report card applications were examined. The subscale and total scores of the teachers were compared according to the gender variable, and statistically significant differences were not found between them. No national studies have been conducted on teachers' physical activity report card applicaitons in the literature. However, Farias et al. (2016) have reported gender differences in the survey conducted to determine the level of Physical Activity of children and adolescents between 2005 and 2015 in Chile (3). In addition with this, in the study by the “University of Southern Denmark Research and Innovation Centre for Human Movement and Learning”, reported that 70% of children aged 11-15 years and 13-18 years were affected by physical activity (at the specified level) and there were gender differences (18). Again, it has been reported that, female students were less likely than male counterparts to participate in vigorous physical activity at recommended levels (5). Results showed an increase in knowledge and in frequency of vigorous physical activity, which persisted to the 12-year follow-up for boys but not for girls (15). TAAG, a national multisite randomized intervention study, is currently under way at 6 sites across the country. It is testing a school and community multicomponent intervention designed to prevent the decline in physical activity in middle school girls (14). Other studies that addressed physical activity through multiple component interventions include the Australia School Project and Slice of Life which was part of a larger community study, had multiple intervention components and addressed multiple cardiovascular health behaviors and resulted smaller declines in physical activity for intervention students, with the most significant effect on girls (6,8,12). When the sub-dimension and total scores of the physical education and sports teachers are compared from the scale according to the school type, statistically significant differences were found between them. While the difference between the "Forcing, Competence, Support" sub-dimensions and the total scores is significant, the difference between the other sub-dimension scores is insignificant. The high total scores of physical education and sport teachers that working at the secondary schools may be due to the physical activity report card applications done as pilot applications in primary schools. No national or international research has been found to support research in the field.

Physical Education Method: Effects on Physical Fitness and Competency of the Students

Physical Education Method: Effects on Physical Fitness and Competency of the Students

the best examples: Julie S. Stoekly in a study entitled: “Sport Education and the Traditional Unit Approach: A Comparison of Student Activity Levels” introduced sport education as a curriculum model in physical education that promotes student responsibility and positive social skills. Healthy People Organization recommended students to spend at least 50% of the studying time on moderate to vigorous physical activities. This study was designed to compare the level of student activity between the traditional unit approach and the sport education curriculum. The procedure dealt with the (SOFIT: System for Observing Fitness Instruction Time) coding system and total number of steps obtained by students using pedometers used as measures of activity to compare models. An AB treatment design was utilized to rotate curriculum models across two classes. The findings indicated that class A spent 64.45% of lesson time on sport education in average, and group B spent in average 60.23% of lesson time on sport education. According to data collected from pedometers and SOFIT, class A had higher activity levels in sport education than in the traditional unit approach, and class B had higher activity levels in the traditional unit approach than in sport education. Consequently, in this study, the sport education model was an effective approach to meet the recommendations of Healthy People Organization, suggesting that students spend at least 50% of lesson time on moderate to vigorous physical activities. Although class B had lower activity levels in the sport education class, the class still averaged higher than 50% of lesson time on moderate to vigorous activities.

Educational Alternatives, Volume 13, 2015

The regularities and specificities in the development of adolescents, as well as their overall behavior, suggest not only physical and cognitive activity, but also acquiring habits, skills and abilities which can help students to apply the latter in practice. Building this new type of behavior in the learning process in physical education and sport should reflect the student's attitude, position and motivation to perform the activities. This requires the use of imitative methods, but also specifically the setting of conditions for rendering an independent and free choice to each student. Behavior is viewed as s personal form of expression, expression of one’s own position on the basis of personal assessment, as a purpose and meaning of what is being done. For this it is necessary to implement a consistent approach with the age characteristics of the students Bozhilov (2002).

Impact of Higher Institutes of Sport and Physical Education in Tunisia Students’ Pre University Cheating Behavior on Their Asocial Conduct during University Examinations

Impact of Higher Institutes of Sport and Physical Education in Tunisia Students’ Pre University Cheating Behavior on Their Asocial Conduct during University Examinations

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first thesis dealing with cheating in university exams at the higher institutes of sport and physical education in Tunisia. This research is aimed to 1) evaluate the importance of the pheno- menon; 2) define the profile of cheating students; and 3) contain the role of the society in the emergence and spread of this phenomenon. 799 students from the four Tunisian higher institutes of sports and physical education vo- lunteered to respond to a quantitative questionnaire-based survey. The data collected were statistically analyzed using the SPSS-version 20 software. A univariate statistical study was followed by a bivariate or multivariate study. 86.1% of respondents admitted that they had cheated during their university education. Univariate and multivariate studies pointed to cheating antecedent as the common denominator amongst cheating students, since 99.98% of them had already cheated at school. Results analysis was performed from two standpoints: the individual and the social context, in which the student was brought up, based on well-established known theories. This twofold approach made it possible to highlight the interaction between the different actors. Student misbehavior is the inevitable result of the shift in social representa- tions of academic norms that have led to the trivialization of cheating, con- verting student status from mere observer into a follower. The genesis of this culture, where cheating has become part of the norm, is marked by the collu- sion plays between the actors involved in the training and evaluation processes i.e. students, professors and the institutions.

The awareness level of the parents about the benefits of the physical education lesson in secondary grade of the primary education schools

The awareness level of the parents about the benefits of the physical education lesson in secondary grade of the primary education schools

According to the scale research [2] about the parents who incredibly attend to the sport of their child that these parents mainly aim the ‘physical development’ ‘athletic skill’ and ‘competition’ [2]. Kılcıgil [7] stated in his research with Turkish families about the family expectation that the first reason for being sent the child to the football club is the desire of the child, the second reason is to provide financial gain and the third one is not to be any traffic risk. According to the study [13], the ‘skill development’ and ‘competition’ are placed near the top of the participation motives of the children [14]. It is found in the study of Colchico et al., [1] that the girls who attend to physical activity after the school feel themselves worthwhile and healthy. Moreover, reported that there is an increment in the social skill of children who attend to the physical activity after the school [13, 15].

ATTITUDES TOWARD PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF DELHI

ATTITUDES TOWARD PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF DELHI

Knoppers, 1988). Treanor, Graber, Housner, and Wiegand (1998) and Lirgg’s (1993) reported that both boy and girls secondary school students showed preferences for single-sex PE. Osborne, Bauer & Sutliff (2002) found that secondary school students preferred single-sex PE. Koca et al. (2005) also indicated that both girls and boys in coed educational high school preferred coed PE class. In Turkey, especially after 1997, Ministry of National Education have started to use “students” as target audience in all of the Physical Education course instruction programs in primary schools, high schools and equivalents. It is stressed that such units have to be practiced together to all students without girl-boy separation (excluding wrestling and soccer branches in girls). Thus, the possibility of different expectations from girls and boys with different physical and emotional status were not considered in the preparation of the program. In spite of the growth in the studies on the effectiveness of PE, sport science literature that have investigated students’ attitudes toward PE and on PE class preferences according to age and gender are limited.

Physical activity in physiotherapy and physical education high school students

Physical activity in physiotherapy and physical education high school students

Abstract. A term of health-related physical fitness became topical with four its components: aerobic and/or cardiovascular fitness, body composition, abdominal muscle strength and endurance, and lower back and hamstring flexibility. Complex evaluation of health-related physical fitness and physical activity (PA) may show a wider insight in health promotion and disease prevention. The aim of this study was to evaluate physical activity relation to health-related physical fitness in Physiotherapy (PT) and Physical Education (PE) students. Final study sample consisted of 67 students (46 women and 21 men) (aged 21.61 ± 0.71). All participants filled in International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Health-related physical testing included: 1) body composition evaluation, 2) abdominal muscles strength tests, 3) dynamometry, 4) hamstring muscles and m. quadratus lumborum elasticity evaluation tests, 5) bicycle ergometer test (anaerobic threshold, maximal oxygen consumption). Results showed that most students had normal body composition parameters (BMI, body fat, muscle mass, body water) in both genders and study programs. Women were less physically active that men, and PA duration was higher in PE students. PT students had higher body composition values, lower cardiorespiratory fitness parameters and lower handgrip strength in both hands than PE students. Greater PA generally implies a higher level of health-related physical fitness. PA significantly positively affects body composition, upper m. rectus abdominis strength, grip strength and aerobic capacity.

Interests in mobile activity forms of persons practicing judo

In the years 2007-2010 the Supreme Chamber of Control [30] carried out inspections of student par- ticipation in physical education classes in the case of 18 661 students. In the inspected schools it could be observed that along with the subsequent stages of edu- cation critical perception of participation in physical education classes is on the increase. In the conducted survey, almost one fifth of final grade primary school students, one fourth of lower secondary school students and one third of secondary school students expressed opinions that these classes were not interesting. In the years 1985-1986 Strzyżewski and Górna [31] conducted research on students’ opinions about phys- ical education and sport classes in several towns of southern Poland. They examined 3696 male and female students of primary and secondary schools. Interests in mobile activity forms of persons practicing judo

Designing a Framework of Stakeholders’ Participation in School Sport Decisions

Designing a Framework of Stakeholders’ Participation in School Sport Decisions

Mutter and Pawlowski (2014) stated that increased participation of students in schools sport is affected by stakeholders such as peers, parents, teachers, coaches, and sport characters (8). Several studies on sports management have used stakeholder theory to understand the role of key sectors in sport. Most of these studies have focused on professional sport, while schools sport has remained understudied (4, 9). Friedman et al. (2004) examined professional sport and schools sport to discover how stakeholder theory could be applied to the issues surrounding the sport environment. They concluded that managers needed a proactive, consistent, and sustainable approach to managing stakeholder relationships (10). In the United States, school sports stakeholders include governments, coaches and physical education teachers, school administrators, students, school graduates, as well as community and schools sport boosters (7). School sports stakeholders in South Africa also include school management (manager and school board), physical education teachers, parents, local sports clubs, community, ministry of education, and the ministry of sports and youth (11). Mackintosh (2014) stated that schools’ sport stakeholders include the sport federations and clubs, higher education institutions, health professionals, government (at all levels of the national, provincial, and regional), community, private sector, sport characters, peers, parents, teachers, coaches, and the family. All these stakeholders must participate in the development of schools sport and take on their responsibilities and provide sufficient opportunities for students to participate in schools sport and physical activity (12). Mandic et al. (2012) argued that the best way to develop schools sport is to provide more stakeholder

Influence of Teaching Style on Pupils Engagement in Physical and Sport Education in Grammar School of Brazzaville

Influence of Teaching Style on Pupils Engagement in Physical and Sport Education in Grammar School of Brazzaville

The analysis of the results of the data highlights several important points: First, it appears that each student has a personal representation of the physical and sport education discipline, which influences his participation in the PSE course, and more precisely the causes of this participation. (Learning, demon- stration of the motor image, realization of gymnastic elements, acrobatic, aes- thetic, pleasure, progress...). Each pupil, therefore, has a different motivation when he comes to PSE, and this is accentuated by the physical activity offered, rather than by the teacher concerned. For Blake & Mouton (1987), these styles are determined from a two-dimensional model that combines two attitudes of the teacher: attitude towards the discipline and physical and sport education and attitude vis-à-vis students. Each of these attitudes is expressed in varying de- grees, weak or strong, disinterest or interest. The combination of these two atti- tudes identifies four basic styles: the transmission style (entered on the discip- line), the incentive style entered on both the discipline and the students), the as- sociative style entered more about students), and the permissive style (very little entered on students or discipline).

Physical education, physical activity and sport in schools

Statistics from the Active Lives Children survey 2017-18 (see section 6.1), published in December 2018, showed that 77% of Year 7 pupils (first year of secondary schools) reported that they could swim 25m. However, only 42% of children from lower socio-economic backgrounds reported that they could do this, compared to 86% of children from more affluent families. The School Sport and Activity Action Plan (see section 5.3), published in July 2019, notes this discrepancy and states that the Government will work with schools and the sport sector to “identify areas where schools face additional barriers to provide high quality swimming and water safety lessons and provide further support to ensure all pupils learn how to swim and be safe in and around the water.” 9

Physical education and sport in schools

Physical education and sport in schools

In June 2018 the Government published chapter two of its childhood obesity action plan. Among other things, the plan announced that the Government would “review how the least active children are being engaged in physical activity in and around the school day.” The review, it added, will also “consider how the Primary and PE and Sport Premium is being used.” The action plan also set out a “national ambition” for every primary school to adopt an active mile initiative, such as the Daily Mile. Such initiatives can, the plan states, be a simple means of contributing to the recommendation that schools should deliver at least 30 minutes of the total recommended 60 daily minutes of physical activity for children. The Government will review how the PE and Sport Premium can be used to support the ambition. 90

Significance of Health & Physical Education P...

Significance of Health & Physical Education P...

According to Mood, Jackson, and Morrow (2007), children should be engaged in moderate physical activity for thirty minutes per day for five or more days per week and vigorous physical activity for twenty minutes per day for three or more days per week. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) (2011) stated that elementary students should be participating in 150 minutes of physical activity a week and middle and high school students should be participating in physical activity for 225 minutes a week. According to The School Health Policies and Programs Study (SHPPS) 2006 study, only 3.8% of elementary schools, 7.9% middle schools, and 2.1% high schools provided daily physical education in the United States. There were several goals for the middle school and high school students involved with this PEP grant. These goals included student improvement in (a) time involved in moderate to rigorous physical activity, (b) nutrition habits, (c) body composition, (d) flexibility, (e) aerobic capacity, and (f) muscular strength and endurance. The other goal directly involved the physical education teachers in this school district. The PEP grant provided the opportunity to pursue professional development opportunities which allowed them to better understand the changes that needed to be made in their classes regarding curriculum and class management. Furthermore, and more importantly, the professional development opportunities were intended to enhance their instruction.

The effects of individually designed programs of physical training based on US army standards on motor abilities of Slovene armed forces personnel

The effects of individually designed programs of physical training based on US army standards on motor abilities of Slovene armed forces personnel

Submitted in May, 2005 Adequate physical readiness is a significant aspect of universal armed forces readiness and an integral part of military support. The aim of this research was to ascertain the effect of a training program, based on individually adapted intensity levels, on motor abilities of the Slovene armed forces (SV) personnel. The sample of subjects in- cluded 34 members of SV (16 in the experimental group – ES, and 18 in the control group – KS), aged between 35 and 40. Results have been processed by the SPSS 8.0 for Windows program. Data processing was carried out in several phases. First, the basic statistical characteristics and the distribution of individual variables have been determined, the measures of central tendency and the measures of dispersion have been calculated and a method for the analysis of variance with 5% risk has been used. The results have shown that a characteristic enhancement of certain motor abilities of the sample studied can be improved by means of training process economisation and individually adapted training intensity levels. Statistically significant differences between the experimental and control groups were found in measurements of body fat (KG), push-ups (SK), curl-ups (DT), a 3200 meter run (T3200M) and the morning heart beat frequency (FSUs). Although the research sample was small, these studies, at least in theory support the need for future research in these areas, as our evidence strongly suggests the effectiveness of individually designed training protocols on the physical readiness of Slovenian armed personnel.
