Abstract

Purpose: identification of the effectiveness of physical education by means of remote technologies for the development of students’ value attitude to their own health in the conditions of quarantine restrictions.

Materials and methods. The study involved 3,726 first-year students of the Lviv Polytechnic National University of all educational-and-scientific institutes. Research methods at theoretical and empirical levels were used to solve the tasks. At the theoretical level, general scientific methods were used (analysis, systematization, generalization). At the empirical level of the study, a questionnaire was used.

Results. According to a one-year ascertaining experiment, 30% of students consider improving and strengthening of their health as a medical problem that is limited to treatment only. Nevertheless, 70% of respondents believe that it is possible to positively affect their health in the following ways: prevention of diseases by means of physical education (21%), promoting a healthy lifestyle (21%), setting up for “healthy” behavior by means of physical education (24%). When asked whether distanced physical education classes contribute to the development of value attitudes towards their health, the vast majority of students (81% of respondents) claimed that in this way they received new information that they consider useful for maintaining and improving their health.

Conclusions. According to the results of the study, it was established that physical education by means of distance technologies contributes to the development of students’ understanding of the need for physical culture, especially in the context of the introduction of quarantine restrictions in higher education institutions. According to the results obtained, the vast majority of students believe that physical education, by means of distance technologies is effective in developing a valued attitude to their own health.
