Improving Speed in Primary School Pupils using Integrated Dynamic Games
Keywords:speed motor quality, integrated dynamic games, primary school
AbstractCurrent primary education aims at the multilateral development of students using means that interconnect the subjects studied so that they outline a wide range of key competencies at the end of the cycle. The present research seeks to find didactic solutions, experimentally confirmed, and transposed by the application of dynamic games, to improve the speed motor quality cumulative with the consolidation of the competencies formed within other disciplines, thus, capitalizing on the multifunctional solution of new learning situations. The study was applied to 54 students from 3rd and 4th grades in rural areas, divided into 2: a control group and an experimental group. In the school year 2021-2022, the experimental group went through a program containing integrated dynamic games for the development of speed motor quality, solving at the same time certain requirements with interdisciplinary approaches. The obtained results confirm the validity of the hypothesis by improving more obvious the speed motor quality of the students from the experiment group as a result of the implementation of the integrated dynamic game program. The study also highlights that a reorganization of activities must be made so that the student can demonstrate interconnections to respond promptly to the tasks imposed by the future society.
