“ I took this text from Game Project Changing. What you thing about this? This week I wanted to share a guest blog from our great friend Todd Beane from TOVO Academy in Sitges, Spain. Todd is a huge advocate for evidence based learning, and in the post below he highlights something we see a lot; two coaches side by side, one seemingly teaching masterfully and the other herding cats. Which group is learning? Here are Todd’s thoughts:
Repetition is not like repetition. To improve skills and creativity in problem solving in sports like tennis, we need more than hitting 10 000 hours the same ball in the same context. Differential learning gives us an idea how to make motor learning more effectiv and more fun! These are some examples how we can vary in coaching without the traditional imagination of repetition. Do it differential! (slides from my presentation „power of differences“ at the „It`s my game II“ conference.
3 Essential Principles for Acquiring Skills in Practice. In this episode CLC covers 3 essential topics about skill acquistion. First, how practice is more than repetition. Second, context is king in transferring learning. Third, know if the goal is to learn or to perform and communicate it. We examine each one of these topics in depth and provide examples for how to apply them in practice.
Glad to present you the slides of my presentation at the „It`s my game II“ conference 2021. The video and all the other amazing presentations from Judy Murray to Mike Barrell are on the following webside for 6 months.
