Abstract

The study aimed at identying the effect of visual and verbal feedback on some kinematics variables in breaststroke swimming on a sample of 20 students of swimming course (2) in the first semester of the academic year 2012/2013. The sample was divided into two groups; the first group includes (10) students which received visual feedback, and a group of (10) students which received literal feedback. Two video filming cameras (Sony) (25-Hz) were used with Kenova analytical software order to find the value of kinematics parameters. The components of study parameters consisted of: (Time of first 25 meters of swimming; time of last 25 meters of swimming; time of 50 meters of swimming, number of arms strokes in the first 25 meters; number of arms strokes in the last 25 meters, number of arms strokes in the 50 meters; stroke length of arms; stroke rate of arms; speed in 50 meters breaststroke swimming; and coefficient of efficiency). The results of the study suggested that visual and verbal-based kinetic analysis feedback has a role in improving the level of kinetic parameters study in the 50 meters breaststroke swimming in the (2) second category of the group of sample students. These are statistically significant differences between the groups of visual and verbal feedback in improving the parameters of (time of swimming in the last 25 meters, time of swimming in the overall 50 meters, speed of 50 meters of breaststroke swimming) in favor of the members of the visual feedback group. The researchers recommended that it is necessary to use of the results of kinematics analysis to evaluate students' performance when giving the feedback in order to detect the points of weak performance for further modification.

Abstract

This study aims at identifying the characteristics of Imam Qabisi's educational thoughts by analyzing and reflecting on his views about the teacher, learner, curricula, teaching methods, along with the educational thoughts in the modern era. The study also includes his views that centre on ethical education, who's educational and intellectual contents have proved harmonious with the educational thoughts in the modern era. This has posed the following two questions as a means to analyses his educational views and coming up with a critical reading of them: -What are Qabisi's educational characteristic features vis-à-vis (teacher, learner, curriculum, teaching methods, and compulsory education)? -What is the critical judgement (a critical analytical view) of Qabisi's characteristic features of his educational thought (teacher, learner, curriculum, teaching methods, and compulsory education)? The two researchers have taken up and espoused the historical method which is based on identifying and analyzing the references relevant to the subject. They highlight the main educational concepts in a way that goes in line with the requirements of our age. The study has come up with a number of results, the most prominent of which is that Muslim educationalist intellectuals including Al-Qabisy have inovated -in the field of Education- unprecedented opinions; rather such opinions run deep in Islam, and thus have been adopted form Islam as a result of deep comprehension of the Holy Quran and the Prophetic Tradition (Hadith). Although Al-Qabisy’s method was not clear and comprehensive in relation to teachers and students, he is considered one of those whose thoughts rely on Islam and the crystal clear legal relationship between the teacher and the student. He has dealt with that relationship with a prudent insight, shedding light on the practical aspects of education and learning.
