International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v12 n2 p68-79 2016
The article addresses ICT in Education by describing an empirical investigation of technology-enhanced sports education. The study examines the use of clickers by 162 Judo athletes during seminars on the rules and regulations of the sport. Results are based on quantitative data collected on athletes' performances and attitudes and qualitative data from a focus group with the trainers. Findings suggest that the use of clickers is linked to athletes' better satisfaction and performance and enables the feedback loop between athletes and trainers. More importantly, the implementation with the use of clickers can simulate the fast reaction time and decision making required during a Judo battle, which is difficult to achieve without the means of technology. Research of technology in the field of sport/physical education is limited. This study provides an interesting presentation of the potential of clickers to improve training quality for both athletes and trainers.
