Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Today as ever the attempt to place the motor and sport sciences at school at a higher level of importance and consideration is really called for. The old-fashioned physical education has been so far put apart in practical-training activities or considered as a mere training for sport. On the contrary, it can become a subject that can add to these contents that are anyhow useful for the motor growth of an individual, a series of knowledge, educational experiences and values of great utility for both the individual and social well-being. This perspective is intentionally ambitious and the aim of this work is not to offer pre-made solutions but to offer a way of reflecting and opening new scenarios of revision of this subject that is being taught for thirteen years and can obtain an educational importance so overcoming the specific objectives of the sector. To start this change we deem it necessary to carry out some strategic tactics: firstly the necessity to consider the teaching of Motor Sciences inside a route of cultural enrichment aimed at the prevention of overweight and obesity and at the planning of healthy lifestyles. Secondly the choice of directing the research and the didactics of motor sciences towards modes and types of teaching that are more updated, technological, of multimedia type and interactive so as to take profit of the research results in media education; at last the conviction to carry out a universal formation of the future teaching of sport and Motor sciences oriented to the pedagogy of movement.
