Brown, Trent D.; Penney, Dawn – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: New curriculum developments present opportunities for established thinking and practice in physical education to be reaffirmed or challenged in government, professional and institutional arenas. The introduction of a new official text for the Victorian Certificate of Education Physical Education [VCEPE] in 2011 provided a prompt for…

Larsson, Håkan; Nyberg, Gunn – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Movement is key in physical education, but the educational value of moving is sometimes obscure. In Sweden, recent school reforms have endeavoured to introduce social constructionist concepts of knowledge and learning into physical education, where the movement capabilities of students are in focus. However, this means introducing a…

Vercruysse, Sien; De Clercq, Dirk; Goossens, Lennert; Aelterman, Nathalie; Haerens, Leen – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Injury prevention is highly needed in physically active populations, such as pre-service and in-service physical education teachers (PETs). As a lack of adherence to preventive strategies is problematic in injury, it seems crucial to develop and optimize interventions that correspond to the specific needs and wishes of PETs. Aim: The…

Roberton, Mary Ann; Thompson, Gregory; Langendorfer, Stephen J. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Valid motor development sequences show the various behaviors that children display as they progress toward competence in specific motor skills. Teachers can use these sequences to observe informally or formally assess their students. While longitudinal study is ultimately required to validate developmental sequences, there are earlier,…

Koh, Koon Teck; Camiré, Martin; Lim Regina, Si Hui; Soon, Woo Sin – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: There is growing evidence indicating that physical education and sport (PES) are environments that, when appropriately structured, can promote positive youth developmental outcomes. In recent years, a number of researchers working in PES have designed programs and interventions aimed at helping teachers and coaches teach life skills…

Lopes, Vítor P.; Stodden, David F.; Rodrigues, Luis P. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Motor skill (MS) competence is an important contributing factor for healthy development. Purpose: The goal was to test the effectiveness of primary school physical education (PE) on MS and physical fitness (PF) development. Methods: Three classes (n = 60, aged 9.0 ± 0.9) were randomly assigned to three diverse conditions during a…

Palmer, Kara K.; Matsuyama, Abigail L.; Irwin, J. Megan; Porter, Jared M.; Robinson, Leah E. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background and purpose: Attentional focus cues have been shown to impact motor performance of adults and children. Specifically, an external focus of attention results in improved motor learning and performance as compared to adopting an internal focus of attention. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of an internal and external…

Bodsworth, Hannah; Goodyear, Victoria A. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: The influence of technology on children's everyday lives is significant in today's society, with children described as digital natives and/or the iGeneration. There are also a range of digital technologies available for use in education and a number of pedagogical approaches reported to support technology integration and pupil learning…

O'Connor, Donna; Larkin, Paul; Williams, A. Mark – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Decision-making is a key component of performance in sport. However, there has been minimal investigation of how coaches may adapt practice sessions to specifically develop decision-making. Purpose: The aim in this exploratory study was to investigate the pedagogical approaches coaches use to develop decision-making in soccer. Method:…

Sato, Takahiro; Haegele, Justin A. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: The field of adapted physical education (APE) has long struggled to overcome significant and persistent personnel shortages [Healy, S., M. E. Block, and J. Judge. 2014. "Certified Adapted Physical Educator's Perceptions of Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Teacher Development." "Palaestra" 28 (4): 14-16].…

Vierimaa, Matthew; Turnnidge, Jennifer; Bruner, Mark; Côté, Jean – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: A growing body of research has studied sport as a vehicle for positive youth development (PYD). While much of this research has investigated the developmental outcomes associated with sport participation, less is known about the mechanisms through which PYD occurs in a sport context. Further, much of the research on PYD in sport has…

Oliver, Kimberly L.; Kirk, David – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2016
Background: Much research and practice in the field of physical activity and physical education for girls has been trapped in a reproductive cycle of telling the "same old story" as if it is news over and over again, since at least the 1980s. A thread running through this narrative is that despite all of this research and related…

Renshaw, Ian; Araújo, Duarte; Button, Chris; Chow, Jia Yi; Davids, Keith; Moy, Brendan – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2016
Background: There is some apparent confusion regarding similarities and differences between two popular physical education (PE) pedagogical frameworks, that is, the Constraints-Led Approach (CLA) and Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU). Purpose: Our aim in this commentary is to detail important theoretical and pedagogical concepts that…

Uehara, Luiz; Button, Chris; Falcous, Mark; Davids, Keith – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2016
Background: Under the view of dynamical system theory, expertise in sports emerges from the interaction of multiple constraints. At an individual level, important interactions amongst constraints could include the relationships that evolve between one's family, playmates/coaches, and specific training activities. Or more broadly, other…
