Extrinsic vs Intrinsic Motivation - The Sport In Mind – SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

Extrinsic vs Intrinsic Motivation - The Sport In Mind – SPORT PSYCHOLOGY | Sport and Physical Education | Scoop.it

Extrinsic motivation is ‘external’: people – in this case athletes – are driven to succeed by factors from outside i.e. money, prizes, acclaim, status, praise. Intrinsic motivation comes from within i.e. an athlete driven by a need to succeed because they want to be the best and are not overly concerned by financial or ego boosts

Intensity- n. the extreme magnitude or amount of strength, force, energy, or feeling that something has.  The word, intensity, is commonly used by people to describe the degree to which something is challenging or difficult, just like the dictionary defines it as.  This is no different when it comes to describing a workout.  Many people run in the other direction when they hear the words, “vigorous exercise” or “intense workout”.  No pun intended.  However, in the fitness world, the word intensity is used for different purposes.  Further, the benefits of participating in regular vigorous exercise are becoming more and more apparent.

Not sure I agree with this totally, team sports are a massive part of what a lot of (not all) students want PE to be. The reason a lot of students elect to take PE is to help improve their abilitys in team sports

cgibbons's comment, July 23, 2013 5:49 AM
Don't agree but does bring up a possibility of a subject pathway with this particular focus.

Interesting take on PE and it's value. It almost totally overlooks the life skills and well being benefits of sport gained that are then applied to real life skills in and out of the sports domain.

Having aggressive parents on the sideline took the enjoyment out of the game and ended up making the players aggressive as well , it also made the game all about winning.
Todd Davies's comment, August 10, 2014 6:48 PM
When on the field the worst and most annoying thing is having parents on the side line telling you what to do. Its so bad at the hockey turfs that they have put up signs say these are kids. umpires are humans. coaches are volunteers. This is not the world cup. This shows what kids sport has come to.
Tyler Callum Owen's comment, August 17, 2014 9:03 PM
This article is completely true as parents are the main influences in our adolescent lives as they encourage and discourage all kinds of activities but when they are on the sideline the beast comes out, From personal experience I can remember my mum yelling and screaming at the referee and players, which is totally uncalled for and destroys the point of playing sport which is to have fun and be competitive compared to just being competitive.

7 Wonderful iPad Apps to Learn about Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Sport and Physical Education | Scoop.it

"Technology has radically revolutionized the human science and provided us with profound insights that were not knowable to us before. It has also cracked the dark secrets of some key scientific concepts that mystified the human mind since the dawn of time. The physiology of the body and body anatomy are some of these key areas that have benefited a great deal from the advancement of technology. Consequently, the teaching of these concepts have become way easier and more attainable. In this regard, developers now have designed so many apps that examine the human body in 3D."

Innovate My School - How to introduce critical thinking skills into your classroom

Innovate My School - How to introduce critical thinking skills into your classroom | Sport and Physical Education | Scoop.it
This approach to teaching critical thinking (CT) makes use of the ‘descriptive-not-prescriptive’ principle I introduced in this article for Innovate My School. In other words: teach by showing them (the students) what they already do rather than telling them what they should be doing but aren’t. Though I will talk about philosophy sessions, as that is my background, the principles and procedure that you will find outlined here apply to any teaching context where the teaching of CT skills will be of value, whether maths, English or P.E.
