Questions related to Physical Education
My PHD topic is Constructions of Physical Education In Primary schools through a decolonial lens. I am using PAR. Now I have a challenge on what to change to hence I cannot have physical contacts with my co-researchers. I have done interviews but cannot continue with the original plan.
Although the interests that exist around health and PE have a good sense and meaning, they may not be as benign as, ironically, they think they are. So, what are the risks of Medicine dictating the aims of Physical Education?

In this question, I am looking for teaching modalities that could be utilized considering the situation today and the nature of teaching Physical Education (PE) where "MOVEMENT" is considered fundamental in teaching towards the promotion of health and fitness.
Looking for a place to submit an article related to assessment and evaluation in physical education that was rejected clearly due to being qualitative in nature.
I am looking for information for the last 100 or 50 years on measurable sporting performance (for example: in athletics, swimming, cycling, rowing and the like) for competitors aged 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+ etc to answer the question: Has the physical performance of the elderly changed over the last 100 or 50 years?
Results for London etc marathons provide times and ages since the 1980s, but that is one activity and just 35 years.
Is there more information?

I am looking for items to measure overall physical education and school sport (PESS) experience (other than satisfaction of or attitudes towards PESS).
Is there any good measurement especially for retrospective research which examines general experiences of PESS in the past?
Any comments would be very helpful.
Thank you. Cheers!
It could be a Science discipline like Natural Sciences or Maths
It could be a Artistic discipline like Arts and Craft, Social.
it could be a Health Science discipline like Physical Education
It could be a Humanities discipline...
Students with disabilities have been included and segregated in physical education and I am curious to hear what people think is the right decision. Should students with disabilities be removed and put into their own class? should students be included? a mixture?
Does any one have good succestions for peer reviewed journals for proposing an article about using computer game design to design a real life learning situation in sports ( Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). Might be Physical Education? Modern culture? Gaming?

I know for ActiGraph, some widely used cut points were from Freedson 1998, Troiano 2008 and Mathews CE. Would somebody commend on which is the best one? Or if there are others available and should be used.
If not, how can I access the English version?
I would like to use it for my Master's Thesis.
I am starting a research project that will involve data collection in three different countries. We are looking at educational policy and practice related to social and emotional learning in physical education. There are multiple methods being used and I am interested in methodological resources, seminal works, etc.
We want to observe interaction and social skills in a group of adolescents with autism who are part of a sport-based program. Is there a validated tool for such thing? Could anyone point me in the right direction? I am happy to share research notes if anyone is interested.
Hello, everybody. Are there any references about the culture of primary skeletal muscle cells (myoblasts, myogenic cells) from aging and/or old rats/mice?Thanks very much !
Currently, I am working on a Master thesis project which focuses on the development of a business case within the realm of Telecare. The aim is to deliver a product or service (potentially a game platform) that stimulates children with impaired mobility to improve their physical fitness level. I have found a lot on impaired mobility, games and telecare but no specific articles in which I can see or find a link to physical fitness. If anybody could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated. (I have been searching on Business Source Premier, maybe this is not the right search engine for the topic?).
I just want to have an idea how this centers are structure, and what is the conception of athlete life and career that support this kind of facility. What is the scientic literature that supports the conception of Sports Performance Centers?
I need to know about new studies about this teaching sport model with young students (from 10 to 14).
I instruct elementary physical education methods and will have a large number (28) of students during the semester. The typical class size is 15. Students enrolled in the course will learn to construct and instruct a 30-minute lesson plan in physical education. For many of the students, this will be the first experience in writing and instructing a lesson plan. Field experiences will also be required with placement being in one physical education setting. The entire group of 28 will attend the field experiences together. The course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so during the semester there are approximately 28 class days. Several weeks are needed to introduce physical education concepts and fundamental skills before instructing the lesson plan and its components. I would love ideas and suggestions on how to accommodate 28 students in physical education methods without losing the effectiveness of my own instruction.
Would you mind please sending Physical Activity Behavior questionnaire (for children) and Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of children questionnaire along with keys for statistical analyzing?
We know that there are many determinants and barriers to physical activity. Among them are the extrinsic factors such as environmental, socioeconomics, and sociopolitical as intrinsic motivation, self-perception, self-efficacy and level of knowledge.
My questions are: Are people becoming inactive due to lack of knowledge of practical recommendations for physical activity, as well as the volume and intensity to achieve health benefits? Would an intervention program based on the recommendations of health would increase levels of physical activity?
If you were to prescribe children exercise, how long and what intensity should they perform the exercise to see mental benefit?
If I have allometrically scaled (body mass) data from a performance test is it possible to use the scaling component to track changes longitundinally?
If I scaled data from a baseline measure (fitness test) from a full squad/cohort of players, and want to assess a number of specific players longitudinally (across a season) do I still use the original scaling component from baseline to assess changes?
For example if a player has a large increase in body mass across a season but maintains performance of a fitness test, does the original scaling component apply as I am assessing the individual against themselves?
I am developing a project involving Athletic Trainers in School Based Health Care, working interprofessionally with nurses and other health professionals. Can you offer insight?
The following article illustrates some ideas:

I know Hills' chapter in the Azzarito's book about visual method (Routledge), but is it the unique work abuot diversity/masculinities using this new methodology?
Looking for prevalence data/publication on number of Canadians meeting resistance training guidelines (muscle and bone strengthening activities using major muscle groups, at least two days per week).
I am looking for the earliest possible research paper describing a physical activity intervention (not ancient). I want to basically know when it all started and who started it.
I am thinking about basing my dissertation on this topic, is this a good idea or is there anyway I could change the question to make it better?
I'm basing my dissertation question on body image perceptions of secondary school girls and whether this influences how they feel towards PE. I was just thinking about the best way of gathering data for this so I can get started.
Remedial Program Biomechanical corrections for the illegal bowling action (Chucking), any research or evidence based support is appreciated.
In modern society Hypokinetic Problems exist in abundance, in spite of awareness regarding importance of exercise the number of sedentary population is increasing.
I am thinking how to arrange experiment with the registration of EMG of the most relevant muscles in race walking. It seems to me that calf muscles are important at heel off phase but at the same time they may provide larger oscillations of the center of mass. Am I right?
It appears that most people used the PAQ-C, but the validity differed by race (Moore et al. 2007, Pediatric Exercise Science). Any other ideas or experiences would help.
Physical education teachers play a key role in promoting health-seeking behaviors. However, teachers will successfully serve the role of a health promoter only if they themselves display a positive attitude towards their own health. I am looking for information about health behaviors (e.g. physical activity, proper nutrition habits, prophylactic behavior, health practices) undertaken by physical education teachers.
I would be glad to receive some references as well.
We are conducting research with young people with Down syndrome and are having difficulty finding previous research regarding the speed-agility (4 x 10 test).
How do you rate (percent wise) the performance of skills? Is the rating based on the criterion with minimum standard or based on the way the student performs the skills based on skill cues? Do you give a greater score to students for competency on the skill performance such as time and distance or based on skill cues?
How do we know that students have learned a physical education skill? We can assess students using formative and summative assessments but how do we know that students will actually be able to use their skills in real-life, authentic situations? In short, how do we know that our students are competent in the target technique?
Is SIMCE (System for Measuring the Quality of Education) in Physical Education, recently introduced in Chile, a valid element to assess the physical condition, as stated by the Minister for Education as a series of measures announced by the government to lower rates of physical inactivity and obesity in this country.
Children are built to move. Their love of moving - and their instinctive capacity to crawl, run like the wind, bound, climb countless trees, or just giggle infectiously due to the invigorating power of moving - is contagious. We all know the value of physical activity and active play in the lives of children but what are some strategies for still including these opportunities in our already overcrowded curriculum? I thought I would share a few of my ideas, and invite you to share your strategies.
If we are going to plan and perform a core stability program among students of university just for health factor, what's the best method?
Is this method performable in physical education lessons?
When students apply the knowledge of other disciplines to understand physical education, then the approach is cross-disciplinary.
Should Physical Education play a significant role in contributing to a child's daily physical activity? If so, should our children have more time dedicated to PE?
