Acquiring Skills: How People Develop Skills in PE

People perform skills every day - ranging from simple tasks such as walking (although this is not simple for a 10 month old child?) through to much more complex skills such as gymnastics routines. Elite sportspeople perform complex tasks repeatedly and with high success rates whilst beginners start off with basic movements and make many mistakes. Skill Acquisition is the study of how people develop skills and become successful performers. This programme clearly investigates the basic concepts of acquiring skills and information processing and applies these to human performance. The programme provides strong links with the associated areas of: Classification of Motor Skills, Types of Movement, Open and Closed Skills, Types of Learning, Stages of Learning, Processing a Skill, Feedback, Memory and Practicing Skills.
