Comprehensive Application of Spatial and Reasoned Thinking in Physical Education
The traditional classroom teaching of physical education (PE) tends to be boring, stereotyped, and rigid; the teachers and students cannot choose between various teaching methods. Therefore, it is difficult to cultivate the creative thinking of students under the traditional model. To adapt to the needs of scientific development and modern society, it is important to explore a new PE model in combination with the knowledge in modern pedagogy, psychology, and kinesiology. This paper integrates the cultivation of spatial and reasoned thinking in PE. Specifically, the authors carried out questionnaire and field surveys on the understanding of students, teachers, and parents of PE in the primary schools of a region in China, and statistically analyzed their recognition of the PE teaching model improved in this research. The results show that: most students could adapt to the improved PE teaching model, and improve their thinking ability under that model; 89% of teachers and 72% of parents held a positive view of the improved PE teaching model. The research lays a theoretical basis for the improvement of traditional PE teaching model, and promotion of the diverse development of PE teaching.
