IMPACT OF DISTANCE LEARNING ON THE MOTOR ABILITIES OF PRIMARY SCHOOL-AGED PUPILS
Keywords:motor skills, primary school age, distance learning
The article compares the results of motor strength tests of primary school students to establish the impact of distance learning imposed by the authorities in the Republic of Bulgaria at the end of 2020 in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. The purpose of the present study is to determine whether educational tools affect the motor abilities of students. To achieve this goal, motor tests are conducted at the beginning of the school year and after the end of the online training.
Methods: The empirical methods used are tests to assess physical performance by jumping from a place with two legs to measure the explosive power of the lower limbs and throwing a solid ball to measure the explosive power of the upper limbs, shoulder girdle, and abdominal muscles. The statistical methods are the relative values of the structure – an absolute sum of the structural differences and integral coefficient of structural differences, as well as correlation and comparative analyzes.
Findings and results: The results of the experiment show that the strength achievements of students are not affected by the type of training.
