European Physical Education Review, v19 n2 p165-182 Jun 2013
Technology can support teaching, learning and assessment in physical education. The purpose of this study was to examine children's perspectives and experiences of using digital video in primary physical education. The impact on motivation, feedback, self-assessment and learning was examined. Twenty-three children aged 9-10 years participated in a 10-week intervention which focused on learning basketball skills. Digital video was used to provide feedback and support self-assessment using rubrics. The project design involved a qualitative inquiry where data was collected through focus groups, interviews with the children and children's skill self-assessments. Teacher skill assessments and teacher research diary entries supported triangulation of data. Self-assessment using digital video impacted positively on student performance. Students were motivated and engaged by the feedback provided as well as the self-assessment process. Digital video can enhance motivation, feedback and performance in skill learning in primary physical education. (Contains 1 figure.)
