GAMIFICATION AND COOPERATIVE LEARNING: EFFECTS OF A HYBRIDIZATION IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION
The present study aimed to assess the impact of a Physical Education (PE) teaching unit on PE satisfaction classes, basic psychological needs satisfaction, motivation, school social climate and cognitive performance. A quasi-experimental design with a control group was used for a total sample of 120 students of Secondary Education (M = 13,48; SD = 1,36) to whom a questionnaire was administered to analyse the study variables. The teaching unit based on the hybridization of gamification and Cooperative Learning (GF + CL) was applied for 8 sessions. The programme showed improvements in the psychological mediators index, executive function of planning, the PE students satisfaction and the school social climate, which would make it suitable for the improvement in the performance of PE teachers in educational centres.
