Cárdenas, Manuel | 2019-01
The low levels of coordination diagnosed in children can affect their subsequent motor development and their academic performance; therefore, it is justifi ed to formulate and evaluate intervention pro-grams that improve their coordinative capacities. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of a pedagogical recreational program on the coordinative abilities of 64 male and female students aged between 6 and 7 years in a Colombian educational institution. In the research carried out, a quantitative cut-off methodology with a quasi-experimental-descriptive design was used; the infor-mation was collected by means of the Capón test, used before and after applying the designed recreational-pedagogical program. The processing of the data was done with free software R. The results allowed to establish that, on average, the differences between the scores accumulated between the pre-test and the post-test in the experimental group are signifi cant and attributable to the aforementioned program. In conclusion, such a program does have positive effects on the coordinative abilities of the study participants.
