Developing perceptive know-how in Physical Education: analysis of the activity of students engaged in a learning sequence in step

Abstract : The aim of this study was to analyze the activity of students engaged in Physical Education (PE),especially a physical self-development activity (step), in order to explore their learning andsensory learning processes. We used the notions of body capability and perceptual know-how tocharacterize and highlight the students’ transformation, concerning their use of physicalperception and their capacity to regulate their personal physical practice. Four students andtheir teacher participated in this study. Their activity was studied in situ during a period of stepteaching, in accordance with the theoretical and methodological frame of the “Course of action”program (Theureau, 2006, 2009, 2015). In the first section, the results show the typical concernsof students engaged in these lessons, with one part focusing on an exploitation of physicalperception. These concerns relate to: (a) effectiveness in execution, (b) self and body listening,(c) optimization of the relation between personal capacities and the choice of exercise intensity.The second section shows the knowledge constructed and updated by the students. Three typesof knowledge were identified: (a) general, (b) about oneself in the realization of the movement,(c) concerning his/her body capabilities. The third section presents the dynamic of concerns andknowledge during the eight-lessons sequence through the four case studies. These results lead toa better understanding of how perceptive know-how is constructed, and to the creation offavorable designs for personal and responsible practice
