Research on Children: New Approaches to Answer Old Questions, But is This Sufficient?
Whitall, Jill
Quest, v61 n1 p93-107 Feb 2009
This article addresses how kinesiological research on children should advance. Using the study of motor development as a backdrop, the article is divided into three sections. The first section relates the four fundamental questions in motor development that have been asked throughout its history. The second section describes four areas of advancing knowledge, primarily from other disciplinary fields, that provide new approaches or paradigms that can advance us in answering these old but relevant questions. The third section suggests that there may be new questions equally or more deserving to be answered because they have broad and applied societal implications. These new questions require interdisciplinary and translational methods that we, as a field, are uniquely able to address. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures and 3 notes.)
