ABSTRACT

This research is a pilot study aimed at analyzing the intensity of male and female students' learning movement comparison using a polar global positioning system (GPS). It is a comparative study, and participants in this study were junior high school students aged 12-13 years, totaling eight students (four males and four females). The research instruments used were Polar GPS RC3 and Polar Heart Rate Sensor H3 to measure the distance and heart rate of students during the learning process. All participants were given a tactical learning model and a technical learning model on different physical education learning days. After that, they were analyzed comparatively to find out the difference. The results showed differences in the intensity of movement in male and female students, with the tactical learning group had higher intensity of movement. Besides, the average male students had higher movement intensity than female students. This study's findings could be used as evaluation material for teachers to improve the physical education teaching and learning process quality. Furthermore, the use of technology, such as the Polar Global Positioning System (GPS), helps teachers monitor their students' level of physical activity. Since this research is a pilot study, further research is needed to determine the differences between the two learning models and gender-based student movement intensity more comprehensively. Besides, the comparison of giving feedback during the lesson is also suggested for further research.
