Learning outcomes

The purpose of the course is to create, through the monitoring of children’s play activities, a corresponding progression of play activities to be performed by school-aged children. It will be important to make a distinction between games for children aged 5-7 years; aged 8-9 years and 10-11 years and adopt a teaching method that may use play in a motor literacy setting and also in the sports training. The teaching method shall take into consideration the typical qualities of children of that age.
At the end of the course, students will be able to propose games following a clear evolution, sequence and purpose. They will have learned to enforce the corresponding psychopedagogical, cognitive, organic-muscular criteria of school-aged children; they will know the physical, motor, cognitive, emotional and social characteristics of toddlers and older kids.
They will show they have understood that play and player are two inseparable entities and therefore the teaching may not only be based on the instrumental concept of play per se, but of play and play evolution. They will be able to identify such disciplinary objectives that are subordinate to the play actions and proposed games. They will be able to place them in an adequate school setting.
