While the time invested in ‘skill/drill?based learning
may pay-off when games are eventually played, there has
often been one key element missing from the skills, drills,
game cycle - fun!
Learning Through Games - Football uses practices
that progressively challenge and motivate pupils to develop
an understanding and awareness of the skills, tactics,
strategies, and rules required to succeed in games. In
essence, it makes the game the focus of the lesson rather
than the technique, and challenges pupils to think about
what they are doing and why.
The material in Learning through Games ?Football has
been designed to support teachers in primary schools.
To this end Tacklesport has sought to make the content
as relevant and realistic as possible.
It is hoped that by building the resource in this way,
teachers will identify with the content and needs of their
own pupils. Although principally for teachers, it is hoped
that the resource will also be of benefit to coaches,
providing a reference to support planning and player development.
John Matthews - Chief Executive Physical Education
Association of the United Kingdom (PEA UK):
"Unlike so many other computer based resources LTG
Football does not merely provide a series of lesson plans,
rather it features a series of practices and skills which
teachers can engage with in order to produce lessons plan
suitable for the ability and experience of their own class.
The animations sections help to simply and clearly outline
how the practices should be set up and the linked video
clips offer the teacher an opportunity to see how it should
look for real.
The new make a difference section offer small, well placed
ideas on how to lead pupils to improve their performance.
LTG Football is a well thought out, easy to use resource
which will greatly assist teachers to deliver more effectively
and enhance the learning of pupils."
