Education currently faces new, urgent challenges arising primarily from the developmental dynamics of contemporary society and is confronted with new views and findings in the areas of pedagogy, didactics of different disciplines, the psychology of effective learning and teaching. It is significantly influenced by the transformation of education, resulting from the development of information and communication technologies. New basic documents initiate shifts in goals, conceptions of disciplines as well as the demands calling for changes in the content, forms and methods. Even being in effect for over twenty-five years, the program has failed to meet many of the expectations for the teachers’ work and also their preparation. Elementary school teacher education is multi-disciplinary, and thus broad and diverse, which makes teaching physical education a challenge for many teachers.
This book aims to formulate practical options for teaching physical education at elementary school in contemporary context.
