Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno


The highlighted reduction in the practice of movement games in the playground constitutes a significant loss of motor habits that reflect the sedentary lifestyle of children today. Numerous studies show a progressive reduction in the use of motor skills due to coordinated factors as well as conditional(2). Furthermore the time dedicated to movement games has reduced and sedentary games have increased. We believe the causes of this situation to be as follows: 1) the arrival of electronic games, which have become more intriguing and interesting for the child than movement games and less tiring; 2) the lack of secure and protected spaces in the open air as old playgrounds are being use for car parks. The children therefore are directed towards static games in the bedroom as open air spaces can be dangerous; 3) in the educational system children are not educated adequately in physical education and it is considered that games should only be used during free time(3).
