Animated micro-sequences and auto-observational learning
an experiment in physical education and sports classes.
Our experimental protocol aims to study short moving images (GIF format) played in looping mode and their possible effects on learning in a school context, as compared to the conventional method. Pre-service teachers created GIF-format moving images with their learners (N = 158), then integrated those images into the teaching process during classes on the starting position of a running race. The experimental groups showed significantly better results than the control groups (p = 0,043; η2p = 0.026): the students who participated in the creation of GIF images and self-observed their performance showed overall better performances than those who were placed in conventional learning conditions.
