Understanding motor learning stages improves skill instruction

For the new learner, the problem to be solved in the cognitive stage is understanding what to do. The associative stage is characterized as much less verbal information, smaller gains in performance, conscious performance, adjustment making, awkward and disjointed movement, and taking a long time to complete.


I think that this article breaks down the stages very well for people who are coaches or supervise children who are developing and participating in activity. It helps them understand how the children's bodies are working. 04-27-2016 11:11am
