Making a New Performance with Computer
Some students have difficulties in their gymnastic activities. In the classroom, the students used the VCR and the computer in order to analyze their techniques of jumping the vaulting box. They also modified the forms on the computer screen to make new performance, and did the actual trial later.
First, they actually jumped the vaulting box, and each performance was taken by a video camera. Next, the teacher showed two different kinds of performance which were input from the video camera to the computer. The students discussed the differences. Then the students analyzed their own performance by comparing with other students' performance. They drew lines or some marks on their performance in order to improve their forms. Finally, they actually jumped the vaulting box, and evaluated their own performance and other students' performances.
The students enjoyed this activity and acquired visual images for their performance. Therefore, they could improve their performance.
