Using Video-Based Modeling to Promote Acquisition of Fundamental Motor Skills
Obrusnikova, Iva; Rattigan, Peter J.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v87 n4 p24-29 2016
Video-based modeling is becoming increasingly popular for teaching fundamental motor skills to children in physical education. Two frequently used video-based instructional strategies that incorporate modeling are video prompting (VP) and video modeling (VM). Both strategies have been used across multiple disciplines and populations to teach a wide range of skills, including motor skills. This article describes the benefits of VM and VP and presents eight basic steps to implementing them into physical education classes to promote the acquisition of fundamental motor skills in children. The eight steps are: (1) identifying the target skill(s), (2) selecting the learning cues, (3) selecting the video equipment, (4) selecting the video model, (5) creating the video, (6) selecting and arranging the setting, (7) monitoring progress, and (8) fading.
