Metacognition, the METAPE-3, a New Instructional Model for Physical Education

Alison Morag Murray, Gloria Napper-Owen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This entry theoretically positions metacognition
pragmatically through social constructivist learning and conceptually through creativity theory. The approach calls upon tenets of agency and
ownership of learning. While it recognizes the
complexity of preparing for informed future based healthy active living, it promotes a way to bridge current practice of motor competence
acquisition with thinking for future healthful
activity lifestyle intention. Educators can choose
to emphasize learning domain preference; psychomotor, cognitive, affective, and healthily active oriented, to support need and preference.
Physical education embodies each and all.
