Title Physical Activity and Learning in the Swdish Bunkeflo Project : evaluation of Motor Skills Training in Compulsory School
Author(s) Ericsson, Ingegerd
Date 2013
English abstract
The aim was to study relationships between physical activity and school performance in perspective of results found in the Swedish Bunkeflo project, also called the Pediatric Osteoporosis Prevention (POP) study. Another aim was to evaluate the model for motor skills training used in the project, the Motor skills as Ground for Learning (MUGI) model – (in Swedish: Motorisk Utveckling som Grund för Inlärning).The MUGI model for motor skills training was found to be useful as a pedagogic model for improving motor skills (balance/bilateral coordination and eye-hand coordination) in school pupils. Both boys and girls improved significantly in motor skills with extended physical education and extra motor training in school. The article proposes a theoretical model for understanding relationships between motor skills and school performance. Key words: Academic achievements, Cognition, Motor skills development, MUGI, Physical Education and Health
