Integrative pedagogical technique of physical education of female students with overweight

Keywords: female students, body mass correction, integral pedagogical technique, physical education


Purpose of work : design and testing of the integrative pedagogical technique of physical education, aimed at the female students’ overweight correcting. Material . The anthropometric examination of 1st-year female students (n = 397) was carried out. The female students were referred to the special medical group according to the health condition. Overweight female students (n = 86) were selected for the pedagogical experiment. The female students were divided into 2 groups: experimental (n = 42) and control (n = 44). Anthropometric and physiometric parameters were determined. The body mass index, Robinson index, and power index were calculated. The motor qualities of female students were evaluated by tests. The female students attended the academic classes "Elective courses in physical education and sports" 2 times a week. The pedagogical technique “inverted class” was applied: the previous self-study of the material on electronic gadgets or on the Internet; subsequent detailed analysis of the gained knowledge in the classroom. Results . By the end of the pedagogical experiment, the female students of the experimental group demonstrated the decrease in body mass in 12.6%, functional characteristics of the cardiovascular system improved, and power and motor abilities’ parameters increased (p <0.05). The body mass index corresponded to normal values in 20 female students (47.6%) at the end of the experiment. The body mass index decreased by 13.8% in 12 female students (28.6%). The body mass index did not change in 10 female students (23.8%). The female students of the control group demonstrated lower results than female students of the experimental group. Conclusions . The integral pedagogical technique is based on a combination of the “inverted class” method and digital learning. Pedagogical techniques considered to be more effective for female students’ body mass correcting than the traditional one.
