Assessment has widely been acknowledged as a central element of institutional education, shaping curriculum and pedagogy in powerful ways and representing a critical reference point in political, professional and public debates about educational achievement and policy directions. Within physical education there remains significant debate regarding the subject knowledge, skills and understandings that should be assessed, in what ways and at what points in students' education this should occur. Divided into three parts, Assessment in Physical Education makes an important contribution to our understanding of the socio-cultural issues associated with assessment in physical education, in terms of its systemic development as well as at the level of pedagogic relations between physical education teachers and their students. It provides readers with an insightful critique and theoretically informed ideas for rethinking assessment policies and practices in physical education. This book will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in physical education and youth sport studies, as well as those involved in initial teacher education and teacher professional development.

Cooperative Learning is a dynamic instructional model that can teach diverse content to students at different grade levels, with students working together in small, structured, heterogeneous groups to master subject content. It has a strong research tradition, is used frequently as a professional development tool in general education and is now emerging in physical education. This book defines Cooperative Learning in physical education and examines how to implement Cooperative Learning in a variety of educational settings. It explores Cooperative Learning in physical education from three main perspectives. The first, context of learning, provides descriptions of Cooperative Learning in different levels of education (elementary school, secondary school, and university physical education). The second, Cooperative Learning in the curriculum, offers case studies from teachers and researchers of their experiences of implementing Cooperative Learning within their own national context. The third perspective, key aspects of Cooperative Learning, examines how the different elements of the model have been foregrounded in efforts to enhance learning in physical education. As the only text to provide international perspectives, from eight different countries, of Cooperative Learning in physical education, this book is important reading for any student, researcher or teacher with an interest in physical education, sport education, sport pedagogy, curriculum development or methods for learning and teaching.

The rapid development of digital technologies has opened up new possibilities for how Physical Education is taught. This book offers a comprehensive, practice-oriented and critical exploration of the actual and potential applications of digital technologies in PE.

Including contributions from the US, UK, Europe, Canada and New Zealand, this international collection reflects on how digital innovations are shaping PE pedagogy in theory and practice across the globe. Its chapters identify core pedagogical principles – rather than simply discussing passing digital fads – and offer practical narratives, case studies and reflections on how PE practitioners can introduce technology into teaching and learning through the use of social media, video gaming, virtual reality simulation, iPads and Wiki platforms. Digital Technology in Physical Education: Global Perspectives is a valuable resource for students, researchers and practitioners of PE looking to integrate digital technology into their work in a way that does justice to the complexity of teaching and learning.

Noriaki Osada, teacher and philosopher, wrote the Theory of International Physical Education and Sports Studies for the Achievement of Peace with "three bold intentions" in mind: to awaken the physical education and sports scholars of the world to their social, nationalistic and global responsibilities; to promote the study of physical education and sports as a study of peace independent from other academic fields; and to affirm the value of such study. As demonstrated in the special atmosphere of the ancient and ever popular Olympic Games, Osada believes that it is the "physical education and sports scholars of the world [who] will, through physical education and sports research, create national theories that will lead to peaceful societies and peaceful nations." Mr. Osada looks forward to the day when such sports terms as fair play and team spirit become the language of international relations. Now a resident of New York City, the author believes that with the establishment of physical education and sports studies for the achievement of peace, we in the United States will leave our mark in human history. About the Author: Noriaki Osada was born in Kyoto, Japan, on March 19, 1949. He has a bachelor's degree from Osaka Physical Education College and an M.A. from National Osaka Education College. He also studied philosophy at Kyoto University as an auditing student. Mr. Osada continues his work in international physical education and sports studies as the founder of Olympic Education for people around the world, is a lifetime member of ICHPERSD (International Council for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, Sports, & Dance), and is also a member of AAHPERD (American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance).
