SILVA, Siomara Aparecida da; MATOS, Eden Schmidt de  e  VELTEN, Marcella de Castro Campos. Exergames as strategic content in school physical education. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.117, pp. 364-374. ISSN 0103-8486.

The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of the use of exergames as part of scholar physical education on the student's motor coordination. Three experimental groups (GE) took part in 18 intervention classes either with exergames only, general games in the court only, or alternating exergames and games in the court, while the control group (GC) kept attending the regular physical education classes. Motor coordination tests were conducted before and after the period of the interventions. Data were analyzed by means of central trend measures, with comparisons between groups (Kruskal-Wallis) and, for each group, between moments (pair-wise Wilcoxon) and effect size. No difference was found between GC and GE, but the intervention led to large effects in the three experimental groups, mainly in the exergames group, in which the effect was large in almost all skills assessed. The use of exergames in a school context can promote an expansion of the child's motor repertoire and the improvement of some skills in a playful way, what usually does not occur in physical education classes without content organization.
