Boing and physical literacy: A play based movement programme for community, school and sport

Abstract

This case study offers an overview of a research project currently being undertaken by academics based at the University of Gloucestershire and Oxford Brookes University (United Kingdom). Our aim is to support practitioners to create playful, active and inclusive environments that support the development of physical literacy in community, school and sport settings. Our focus is twofold: firstly, to provide meaningful developmental experiences for practitioners to support the delivery of play-based, problem-based environments for young people, and secondly, through those practitioner, support children to develop their physical literacy through active play. The underpinning work is based on the theoretical constructs of an ecological dynamics framework and grounded on the premise that problem setting and solving is key to young people's development.
