It is an authentic setting which allows for social interactions and demonstration of positive emotions as well as social behaviours. Furthermore, the interactive and problem-solving nature of many physical activities means that students have numerous instances to communicate positively with others, source for information, as well as to think critically and creatively – all necessary for 21st century living. Through learning activities and ‘teachable moments’ in physical education, students are given the opportunities to acquire sound moral values, develop social skills and higher order thinking skills, and 21st Century Competencies.
