Abstract


Motor learning in preschool education is very important to be a concern because it has an impact on the growth and development of children, and their mental abilities. This study aims to design and implement motor learning measuring tools using sensor technology for preschool education. This measuring instrument is expected to have a good performance in assessing motion in children, such as running, walking, and jumping. This type of research is development research with three stages, namely, phase I needs analysis and designing motor learning measuring tools, phase II, implementation of motor learning measuring tools, and developing motor learning measuring tools, phase III, evaluating of motor learning measuring tools and dissemination. However, this research is only limited to the stage of designing and implementing motor learning measuring tools. This research involved instrumentation experts and Kindergarten students, with a total sample of 65 students, using the purposive sampling technique. The result of this study is a sensor technology-based motor learning measuring instrument that can make an objective, easy and practical assessment. This measuring instrument can measure motor skills in locomotor movements, namely, running, walking, and jumping. Furthermore, the results of the implementation showed an increase in the motor skills of children aged for the better. So it is hoped that this measuring tool can be used by the wider community in an effort to improve preschool education learning.
