The effect of the 8 m.m. slow motion color film on the learning of specific motor skills Winslade, Donald Kenneth

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of the 8m.m. slow motion color film on the learning of motor skills in physical education. Basketball skills were used in the study. Three classes of Grade 9 boys were selected for the study. The three classes were administered the Stroup Basketball Test. After the initial test one class was selected as the group to receive the class demonstration by film. One class was selected as the group to receive the class demonstration live, by the teacher. The third group was selected as a control group. The groups were matched by threes on a basis of rank order. The live group and film group received 8 lessons in basketball skills. The lessons were identical except for the method of demonstration. The control group received regular physical education periods, excluding basketball. At the end of the 8 lessons, the three groups were retested. Both the film and live groups showed gains in performance which were statistically significant. No statistically significant gains were obtained for the control group. The improvement of both the film group and live group significantly exceeded the improvement of the control group. The improvement of the film group did not significantly exceed the live group. It was concluded that the 8 m.m. slow motion color film seems conducive to the learning of motor skills and adaptable to use in physical education when used competently.
