Implementando el deporte, la actividad física y la Educación Física en las escuelas primarias de Nueva Gales del Sur, Australia

Palabras clave: Educación Física, actividad física, escuela primaria, pedagogía, calidad de la enseñanza, enseñanza centrada en el juego

Resumen

Un emergente nuevo enfoque de la Educación Física (EF) para la Educación Primaria en Nueva Gales del Sur, Australia, tiene el potencial de generar una forma de intervención que puede traer consigo positivas consecuencias a largo plazo para toda la población. La introducción de la EF dentro del Currículo Nacional va a provocar que se preste una renovada atención sobre el papel de la EF en las escuelas primarias australianas. El incremento de la obesidad como epidemia internacional abre la puerta para que la EF en las escuelas primarias contribuya positivamente a la mejora de la salud pública. En este contexto, unos buenos programas de EF para la educación primaria, desarrollados por profesorado formado para impartir una EF de calidad, pueden dar lugar a beneficios significativos a largo plazo. Por otra parte, hay también un importante corpus de investigación, pasado y presente, que vincula la actividad física al rendimiento académico. No obstante, no todos los docentes de educación primaria poseen los conocimientos ni la experiencia que les permita impartir una EF de calidad. Con el fin de lograr los resultados esperados, proponemos un enfoque de la Enseñanza Centrada en el Juego (Game Centered Teaching) y la subyacente pedagogía porque tienen el potencial de proporcionar unas experiencias más significativas para estudiantes y profesores. Para poner en marcha dicho enfoque, abogamos porque los responsables de su desarrollo en las escuelas sean los docentes especialistas en EF –y no personal subcontratado externo–.
