et saine pour la vie.

Dans un monde dominé par la technologie, le savoir-faire physique en EPS devient un élément essentiel de la santé et du bien-être général. Au fur et à mesure que la pandémie se poursuit, nous constatons d’énormes répercussion sur la santé des adultes et des enfants, et l’importance cruciale d’apprendre à bien se déplacer apparait comme un fondement d’une vie active et saine. L’exploration du jeu et d’une grande variété de compétences fondamentales du mouvement tout au long de notre vie peut avoir un impact profond sur notre santé et notre bien-être.

"L’adoption du savoir-faire en EPS comme objectif, offre une puissante opportunité pour la profession. Elle nous permet de nous unir derrière une vision de qui nous sommes et ce que nous faisons."

OPHEA - Physical Literacy

Video 1 - Introduction Physical & Health Literacy

Introduction to Physical & Health Literacy is the first video in the three part series and is intended for children aged 4-9. In this video, children will be introduced to the concepts of physical and health literacy. A general overview of both terms will be introduced and defined in order to help children and youth build the ground level knowledge needed to lead a healthy and active life every day.

The use of the Internet within education has created an urgent need for research into online learning models, delivery methods and curriculum content modifications especially in online physical education (OLPE). Most secondary OLPE courses focus on the cognitive pieces of the curriculum, and to a lesser degree, fitness for life due to a lack of research. The omission of the physical, social and emotional components of the OLPE curriculum has created a rift in the understanding, growth and development of students who take these courses. For this reason, Kinesiology professionals need to take a lead in the development of OLPE curricula through efficacious research.

Creativity discourses have been central to educational scholarship and policy moves over the past decades (Gormley, 2018; Lucas, 2017), but little research explicitly attends to the intersection between Health and Physical Education (H/PE) and creativity. Writing from the Australian context, we discuss how the pedagogical Key Ideas or Propositions1 of the Australian Curriculum: HPE (AC: HPE) and the Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) general capability (ACARA, 2015) can facilitate re-energising practice in the Australian context and beyond.

Margaret Whitehead first introduced the concept of physical literacy over 20 years ago. Since that introduction, physical literacy has been gaining in popularity within many Western physical education and sport contexts. This is particularly true within Canada, where physical literacy has been embraced by two of the nation’s most notable national physical education and sport organizations (i.e., Physical and Health Education Canada, Canadian Sport for Life). 

The Value of Fostering Physical Literacy

Margaret Whitehead, Elizabeth Durden-Myers & Niek Pot

This article considers the value of physical literacy. Unequivocal support for aspects of the concept can be found in philosophy, neuroscience, social justice, the nature of human development, psychology, and sociocultural studies. These areas of support will be outlined and then related to the practical value of physical literacy in the school context. This article will close with a discussion centered on claims that physical literacy is an end in itself rather than predominantly a means to other ends.

Resource to Share with Parents: Helping Your Child Develop Physical Literacy 

Jeffrey S.Gehris et al.

The development of physical literacy begins in the very early stages of childhood — even  before young children enter the school system and are exposed to structured physical  education classes. This means that parents are essential allies in building an early foundation for their children’s development of essential skills that will enable them to move with  competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities, as well as reap important health benefits.
