Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical education which is applied using a specific teaching methodology has a direct impact on different aspects of the lives of students. Its main purpose is to develop students’ motor skills, which are skills defined as the integration of procedures, attitudes, feelings and knowledge mainly related to motor behavior. The aim is to enable students to move effectively and efficiently.

This Special Issue in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, entitled “Physical Education and Health at School Age”, offers researchers the opportunity to publish multidisciplinary research regarding the importance and incidence of physical education in today’s society. We are interested in high-quality original research, review papers or study protocols related to the practice of physical activity (sports) to generate healthy lifestyle habits that favor an adequate quality of life and prevent diseases, such as childhood obesity.

The nature of this subject transversally allows improvement in other curricular subjects. It also generates suitable spaces for the development of sports learning and constructive conflict resolution. Therefore, papers that analyze the relationships between teaching methodology, sports learning and academic performance are also welcomed.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Innovation and teaching methodologies;
  2. Motor skills and sports analysis;
  3. Physical fitness, health and quality of life;
  4. Healthy habits and lifestyles in relation to physical activity;
  5. Academic performance and co-education;
  6. Evaluation instruments.

Hybrid implementation of pedagogical models (PMs) helps to overcome the limitations of a single pedagogical model (PM) when it comes to improving student learning outcomes in physical education (PE). Empirical research on hybridizations has grown substantially in recent years, so the purpose of this study was to conduct a systematic review on the effects and mechanisms of different hybridizations on students’ learning outcomes (i.e., motor, cognitive, affective, and social) in PE. Electronic databases, including ERIC, SCOPUS, EBSCO host, and Web of Science, were used to select intervention studies. After inclusion and exclusion criteria were applied, 17 high-quality studies, published in English peer-reviewed journals, were assessed. Results show that there were seven different hybrid models having impacts on students’ learning outcomes, which could be divided into four categories: (1) game performance and technical skills; (2) understanding of tactics and decision-making abilities; (3) motivation, autonomy, and confidence; (4) interpersonal skills, cooperative learning ability, and responsibility. Length of implementation and teachers’ familiarity were the main factors that limit the implementation on hybridizations. Future research should consider quasi-experiments with control groups of hybrids versus single models to figure out the advantages of the hybrid model over the single model; including more evidence from different schools, regions, and countries is necessary.
