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, application and empirical testing of psychomotor teaching and learning methods at school. During the project period from 2014 to 2018, the differences in cognitive and psychosocial development of the pupils will be evaluated in experimental and control groups. During training sessions and parent’s evenings, qualitative interviews will be conducted to help interpreting the results and rendering them more precisely.
