Haslam, I. R. (1999). Electric learning environments for mastery learning in physical education. In S. P. Loo (Ed.), Proceeds of the MERA-ERA Joint conference 1999: Educational Challenges in the New Millennium (pp. 1654-1661). Malacca, Malaysia.
The purpose of this paper is to explore how the use of information technology in a
physical education curriculum can contribute to the development of a mastery learning
environment. The physical education curriculum can be viewed as a system and a set of
interrelated sub-systems. The most popular are the fitness education and motor skills education
sub-systems with possibly a social education sub-system. If the fitness or skills education subsystem
is exclusively a physical experience then it would be mainly kinesthetic information
that the student would be learning through the instructional programme. In a mastery learning
environment, which is seen by many as a motivational learning environment, there needs to be
a cognitive and an affective element in the lesson. In short, it is a challenge of the physical
education teacher to create an environment conducive to a thinking, feeling moving person.
Electronically supported physical education lessons could help to create both the mastery
learning physical education environment in class and at the same time help to develop positive
attitudes toward physical activity.
