  • Traditional assessment and its consequences. A case in the hegemonic
           Physical Education

    • Authors: Marta Oliver Alvarez
      Abstract: The discourse of performance in Physical Education continues to perpetuate a multitude of techniques and
      decisions for student assessment and grading. Physical fitness tests are commonly employed in the school
      context, often without due consideration of the resulting consequences. This current case study, using a qualitative
      methodology, aims to illustrate the experiences and interpret the consequences of using physical tests among
      1st year Baccalaureate students and the respective teacher. Data collection involved a total of 14 semi-structured
      interviews and two-month participant observation recorded in a field diary. As the findings illustrate, the
      expressed emotions reveal a dichotomy between students who feel motivated by assessment tests and those who
      experience frustration after completing them, largely influenced by their skill level. Conversely, the teacher
      exhibits an urgent need to standardize the tests and shelter behind its presumed neutrality. The conclusions
      highlight the necessity of reflecting on the consequences of these persistently replicated practices, in order to
      progress towards more formative and participatory assessment processes.

  • Brazilian combat athletes face the postponement of the 2020 Olympics

    • Authors: Juliana Aparecida de Oliveira Camilo, Giovana Zini Raucci, Valentina Viego
      Abstract: The objective of the study is to analyze the perceptions of Brazilian Olympic combat sports athletes (MEC) about
      the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. Semi-structured
      interviews were conducted with four Brazilian Olympic athletes. The research followed social constructionism, with
      an emphasis on discursive practices, recording the way in which the interviewees produce meanings. Two thematic
      categories emerge from the interviews that make the analysis possible: a) the logic of hegemonic masculinities
      and; b) impacts on mental health. The findings of this research suggest that despite having achieved a good
      performance in the Olympic Games, the isolation produced in the Brazilian MEC athletes a strong impact on their state
      of mind and expectations, associated with the difficulties caused by the lack of minimum structure available in
      Brazil. All those interviewed recognize the importance of psychology services for overcoming the difficulties
      experienced by athletes in the face of the pandemic.

  • Effects of Physical Education on students with intellectual disabilities.
           A systematic review

    • Authors: Amparo Tijeras Iborra, Jesus Ramón-Llin Más, Diana Marín-Suelves
      Abstract: The potential of physical activity and sport for children and young people has been extensively researched, but we
      need to make an effort to analyse the current situation in the attention to diversity. This literature review analyses
      22 scientific papers published in the last decade using the PRISMA method. The results allow us to analyse the
      identification, methodological and content variables and to conclude that all the interventions carried out produced
      different types of benefits: physical, emotional, cognitive, social, health and also in the development of values. In
      addition, there were also benefits in terms of students’ attitudes towards inclusion. Analysis of these results will
      be key to designing future interventions based on scientific evidence. We must not forget that Physical Education is a
      subject for all students and everyone has the right to be there, to participate and to learn.

  • The execution velocity as a marker of metabolic health in university

    • Authors: Jhonatan peña
      Abstract: The aim of this research was to evaluate execution velocity (EV) as a marker of metabolic health in university
      students. During the year 2020 and the first semester of 2021, a descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried
      out on 57 students (45 men and 12 women) belonging to a higher education institution located in the city of Bogotá,
      Colombia. To measure VE, the T-Force System, Ergotech, was used during the development of a direct protocol
      to determine the value of one repetition maximum (1RM) in the squat and bench press exercise. To assess
      the metabolic profile, a blood sample was taken, which was deposited in the Cardiocheck equipment with which
      total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoproteins (HDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and glucose levels.
      Participants who developed a lower average mean propulsive speed in all the series developed, both in the
      squat test and in the flat press exercise, presented a higher Metabolic Risk Score compared to those who had a
      better performance (p < .001).

  • Jigsaw Puzzle technique vs. traditional group work: academic performance
           and satisfaction of the university students

    • Authors: Noelia González-Gálvez, Raquel Vaquero-Cristóbal, Pablo Jorge Marcos-Pardo
      Abstract: Alternative learning methods such as the Jigsaw Puzzle (JP) technique have gained prominence over traditional teaching
      to promote the acquisition of skills in Higher Education. The aim of this research was to compare the academic
      performance and satisfaction of students depending on whether the JP technique or traditional group work was
      used. This is a cross-sectional study that involved 61 students in their 2nd year of the Degree in Physical Activity and
      Sport Sciences (20.11 ± 0.43 years). In one class group, the JP technique was applied (n = 29), while the traditional technique was used in the other group (n = 32). After the end of the workshop, the grade and the degree of satisfaction
      obtained with the techniques used were evaluated. The JP group obtained a grade (X = 8.52; SD = 0.5) and a degree
      of satisfaction (X = 7.28; SD = 1.5) which were significantly higher than the traditional group (rating: X = 5.58; SD =
      0.6; satisfaction: X = 6.34; SD = 1.6) (p ˂ .001 and p = .023, respectively). A correlation was found between grade and
      satisfaction (ICC = .360; p = .004). In conclusion, conducting a one-off session based on the JP technique versus using a
      traditional technique yields better grades and greater satisfaction with the teaching-learning process.

  • Sport and socio-educational intervention: impact on well-being and social
           capital in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities

    • Authors: Luz Ibáñez Navarro, Yamile Turizo, Claudia Arenas, Pedro López
      Abstract: Community development includes various areas of approach such as health, sports, among others, which
      seek to improve the living conditions of individuals or groups in a specific context. In this sense, some institutions
      generate interventions through strategies such as sports or nutritional care. In view of this, the objective of this research
      was to analyze the influence of interventions carried out by two non-governmental organizations on the psychological
      well-being and social capital of two populations living in socioeconomically disadvantaged areas in Colombia. The
      research was of a quantitative transversal explanatory type, carried out with 257 participants of the entities
      that implement social interventions. Ryff’s Psychological Well-Being Scale and Cardozo and Cortés’ Social Capital
      Measurement Scale were applied. The results showed that communities perceive greater identification with foodbased
      interventions; in contrast with those that base their actions on the implementation of long-term strategies
      based on sports. This raises the question of the effect of interventions that meet basic needs such as food, over
      other types of interventions that focus on community and personal strengthening.

  • Social distancing and injuries in students during physical exercise and/or

    • Authors: Rosario Castro López
      Abstract: In the last two years, the scientific literature has revealed the negative physical, psychological and affective-social
      repercussions of confinement and social distancing measures, being the sports field, in particular, the one
      analyzed in this study. The purpose of this research is to relate the frequency and severity of the injury in physical
      exercise and/or sport with the population’s perception of the importance of social distancing and the use of masks to
      reduce Covid-19 infections. The study sample is made up of 203 participants (95 men and 108 women), with a mean age
      of 16 years (SD= 6), belonging to schools in the province of Alicante and Spanish universities. A cross-sectional
      and correlational design was acquired with a selective data collection strategy using self-report measures. To
      evaluate the injuries, a self-report record was developed and for the population’s perception of the usefulness of
      social distancing measures, the Perception Questionnaire on Causal Factors of COVID-19 (CPFC-COVID-19) was used.
      The results indicate that those subjects who perceive more important the maintenance of a safety distance and
      the use of masks to stop infections, present high levels in the dimension of social distancing for mild and moderate
      sports injuries, while those that give less relevance are seriously or very seriously injured. The relationships of
      these variables are discussed, as well as the applicability of the results.

  • Analysis of the shots in Football for blind people in the 2021 World Grand

    • Authors: José M. Gamonales, Víctor Hernández-Beltrán, Kiko León, Mario C. Espada, Manuel Sanabria-Jiménez, Carolina Alemán-Ramírez, Luis Felipe Castelli Correia de Campos, Jesús Muñoz-Jiménez
      Abstract: The present study analyses all in-game goal kicks (n = 424) in 5-a-side football for blind people in the international
      tournament World Grand Prix 2021, held in Tokyo (Japan). For this purpose, the IOLF5C instrument was used, which consists of 14 variables to analyse the effectiveness of shooting at goal. A descriptive study and association between the independent variables of the analysis (contextual and game actions), and the study variable (result of the throw-in) was carried out. The results show that 5-a-side football for blind people is a sport modality with a reduced number of technical-tactical actions. The winning team of the tournament is the one that performs the highest number of shots at goal, they start the play in the starting zone and shoot at goal from the offensive zone. Perform a fast progression with driving and throwing to goal, without blocking, and, mainly, they hit the ball with the right foot and, mostly with the toe/start. In addition, the result of the throw is conditioned by the variables team status, starting zone, throwing opposition and body zone. Therefore, it is recommended that coaches should design situations that favor quick ball stealing after effective pressure in offensive zones.

  • Psychosocial and physical activity levels in elementary school education
           pre-service teachers

    • Authors: Eduardo Melguizo-Ibáñez, Félix Zurita-Ortega, Rafael Caracuel-Cáliz, Jose Alonso Vargas, Gabriel González_Valero, María Rosario Salazar-Ruiz
      Abstract: The selection process for teachers in Spain involves a great deal of academic preparation on the part of the applicant, which can lead to the appearance of negative emotional states together with a high level of sedentary
      lifestyles. The objectives of the research are to study the levels of physical activity, resilience, stress and burnout
      syndrome in terms of the calls for primary education competitive examinations and to study the relationship
      between physical activity, burnout syndrome, resilience and stress. A cross-sectional study was proposed in a
      sample of 4,117 candidates for the primary education competitive examination. The instruments used were the
      Perceived Stress Scale, the Maslach Burnout Inventory and the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale. A higher level
      of burnout (p < .05) and physical activity practice (p < .05) is observed for participants who have taken the teacher’s
      competitive examination more than others. Furthermore, negative relationships of resilience with stress (r = −
      .522; p < .01) and physical activity (r = − .166; p < .01) are evident. Finally, it is concluded that the most experienced
      candidates in the teacher competition process show higher levels of burnout, stress and physical activity time.

      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to analyze the effect of a physical activity (PA) program on the fitness perceptions
      (FP) of nine-to-11-year-old schoolchildren. This quasiexperimental study involved 24 children divided into
      experimental (EG) and control groups (CG). Perceptions of fitness (FP), cardiorespiratory fitness (CRFP) and muscular
      strength (MSP) were assessed using the International Physical Fitness Scale (IFIS). Mann-Whitney and Wilcoxon U tests were used with significance set at p < .05. Significant differences were found between groups in FP (.000 p < .05), CRFP (.002 p < .05) and MSP (0.02 p < .05), with better perceptions existing in the EG. The estimated effect size was large, indicating real differences between the two groups (FP [CG] = 0.15; FP [EG] = 1.71; CRFP [CG] = 0.15; CRFP [EG] = 2.50; MSP [CG] = 1.14; MSP [EG] = 3 .34). The main findings revealed that the examined PA program had a significantly positive effect on FP both overall and in relation to its cardiorespiratory (CRF) and muscular strength (MS) components. A large effect size.

  • The effect of lower limb balance ability and bilateral asymmetry on
           flamenco footwork

    • Authors: Ningyi Zhang, Sebastián Gómez-Lozano, Ross Armstrong, Hui Liu, Alfonso Vargas-Macías
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of lower limb balance ability and asymmetry on external load during
      flamenco footwork. Five professional and five amateur flamenco dancers completed the flamenco Zap-3 footwork
      at 160, 180 beats per minute, and at their own the fastest speed possible while wearing triaxial accelerometry (at the
      dominant ankle, non-dominant ankle, 5th lumbar and 7th cervical vertebrae). The external load was calculated in the
      form of Playerload. The Y-Balance test was used to assess the balance ability, anterior, posteromedial, posterolateral,
      composite scores and the asymmetry index were calculated. Amateur dancers are more susceptible to the effect of
      balance ability and better balance ability may produce less external load. Having good bilateral balance symmetry between both limbs is a positive effect among flamenco dancers: it reduces overloads at the cervical level and injury risks
      and could optimize their percussive tapping technique.

  • A critical look at Adventure Education programs

    • Authors: Antonio Baena Extremera
      Abstract: Programs based on Adventure Education models are increasingly applied in schools, thanks, among other
      reasons, to the inclusion of physical activity in the natural environment as a compulsory part of current educational
      legislation. Scientific literature has demonstrated over the years the wide-ranging benefits that these educational
      models offer students in terms of personal aspects, social aspects, health and the habit of staying active,
      among others. For a better application of this model, it is necessary to identify the different existing programs that
      use “adventure” as a means to educate and, through this, select the most appropriate model for the target group,
      available space and opportunities. For all these reasons, the aim of the present study was to analyze and compare
      the characteristics of the best known and most widely used Adventure Education models on the international
      scene, highlighting those most widely used in Spain. For the elaboration of this work, the models addressed
      were: outdoor adventure education, adventure learning, experiential learning, challenge rope courses, adventure
      pedagogy and adventure education. Following analysis of each of these educational models, it is concluded that
      for correct educational application knowledge is required about the way in which each typology should be applied, as
      well as the differential benefits they produce.
