The nine key principles of motor skill learning is primarily used in the learning process. ... The Principle of Skill Specificity states that the student's ability to perform one motor skill effectively is independent of the individual's ability to perform other skills.
1. The Principle of Interest states that the student's attitude towards learning a skill is a determining factor for thethe amount and kind of learning that happens.
2. The Principle of Practice claims that practicing the motor skill correctly is essential for learning to occur.
3. The Principle of Distributed Practice states that short periods of intense practice will result in more learning than longer practice sessions.
4. The Principle of Skill Specificity states that the student's ability to perform one motor skill effectively is independent of the individual's ability to perform other skills.
5. The Principle of Whole-Part Learning states that the difficulty of the skill to be learned and the student's ability determine whether it is more efficient to teach the whole skil or break it by components.
6. The Principle of Transfer states that the two tasks are more indentical, it is more likely for positive transfer to occur.
7. The Principle of Skill Improvement involves the development of motor skills over time.
8. The Principle of Feedback states that internal and external sources of information about performance is essential for effective learning to happen.
9. The Principle of Variable Practice states that variable practice aids in the theoretical learning while block practice aids on the application or actual performance.
