Psychomotricity in School
Development, application and evaluation of psychomotor teaching and learning methods in primary and secondary schools
Through a psychomotricity program, active learning in primary and secondary schools should be enhanced. In training sessions, teachers will be familiarized with active learning and methods of teaching oriented on children’s learning processes. These competences will be put into action in everyday life at school. By the application of psychomotor teaching and learning methods, the pupils should develop greater enjoyment in school, increase their abilities and gather positive social experience.
The project comprises development, execution and empirical tests of psychomotor teaching and learning methods in school. During the project period from 2012 to 2016, the differences in cognitive and psychosocial development of the pupils should be evaluated in the experimental group and in the control group. For the tests in primary schools, Wolfpassing was chosen as experimental group, the primary school Wang as control group. In secondary school, Mannersdorf´s class 1a was selected as experimental group, a class of Bruck an der Leitha II serves as control group.. During training sessions and parent’s evenings, qualitative interviews will be conducted to help interpreting the results and rendering them more precisely.
