    (International Journal of Development Research, 2022-01) da Silva, Cláudio Silvério ; Winckler, Ciro ; Mataruna-Dos-Santos, Leonardo Jose ; Ferreira, Heidi Jancer ; Nunes, Hudson Fabricius Peres ; Drigo, Alexandre Janotta
    The objectives of this study were to analyze the professional training in physical education of coaches since its beginning and what are the perspectives of training and career. The study participants were Brazilian coaches medaled in the summer Paralympic Games in athletics and swimming. Fourteen coaches participated in the study - nine working in swimming and five in athletics; all male, graduated in physical education, ten have graduate degrees, aged between 28 and 54 years old, and held positions from 1 to 31 years old. The research approach used was qualitative and the method of data collection was the semi-structured interview. The study showed that the professional training of coaches in physical education in the field of Paralympic sports was precarious for the majority and adequate for a minority. Only three coaches had intrinsic motivations of intentional choice to work in Paralympic sports, while the rest started occasionally. Although the coaches' perception valued the formal training given by the Brazilian Paralympic Academy, there is a lack of research on how this training impacts the development of coaches. As for career prospects, coaches consider them promising, although Brazilian high-performance sports, whether Olympic or Paralympic, do not have a well-defined career path.

This chapter is a case study on one of the OVS discipline – cycling event - which utilized Zwift, an online multiplayer cycling training program. It also aims to explore the elements which will enable the IOC to integrate Olympic values and promote education and peace. (C) Gama Assessoria Empresarial, 2021.

    Análise documental dos pecs de educação olímpica certificados pelo comitê Brasileiro Pierre de Coubertin
    (Gama Assessoria Empresarial, 2021) Perovano-Camargo, Leonardo ; Mataruna-Dos-Santos, Leonardo Jose ; da Silva, Otávio Guimaraes Tavares
    Partindo do princípio da existência de uma influência mútua entre as manifestações esportivas e os valores que as sociedades carregam, tem-se que o esporte, enquanto fenômeno socializador, porta alguma concepção de valor. Isto permite pensar a legitimação histórica das práticas esportivas enquanto metalinguagens axiológicas. Os temas educacionais do olimpismo são a alegria do esforço; o jogo limpo; o respeito pelos outros; a busca pela excelência; e o equilíbrio entre corpo, vontade e mente. Esses valores podem ser ensinados a partir da educação formal (escolar), educação informal (o ambiente onde se vive) ou ainda, na educação não formal (iniciativas não-escolares de ensino). A experiência mostra que de forma geral, programas de educação olímpica podem ser classificados como “educação não formal” (atividades educativas com algum grau de intencionalidade e sistematização, não regidas pelas leis da educação nacional). No Brasil, os programas de educação olímpica certificados pelo Comitê Brasileiro Pierre de Coubertin - Estação Conhecimento (EC) – núcleo Cidade Continental, em Serra/ES – e a Fundação Tênis (FT) – seis núcleos em SP e oito núcleos em RS - podem ser classificados como iniciativas de educação não formal. Porém ainda não temos conhecimento suficiente sobre estes programas. Assim, este trabalho teve por objetivo identificar, descrever e analisar suas categorias teóricas. O método adotado foi o da pesqui- 59 sa documental. Além dos documentos digitais escolhidos (sites oficiais e postagens em redes sociais relacionadas), recolheu-se como “documentos físicos tradicionais” o Projeto Final Aprovado, as Ações para o Comitê Brasileiro Pierre de Coubertin, e a Proposta Pedagógica de Esporte da Estação Conhecimento e o Estatuto da Fundação Tênis. Os dados foram analisados a partir das categorias de inclusão social sistematizadas por Richard Bailey e da tipologia de projetos sociais esportivos descrita por Geoff Nichols. A partir das análises feitas nos documentos, classifica-se, em relação à tipologia de nível de risco dos participantes, como “secundária”, pois os dois projetos trabalham com crianças e adolescentes em situações consideradas vulneráveis. Pode-se classificar o mecanismo de ação dos projetos, a partir do relatado em seus documentos, como o de “desenvolvimento pró-social”. No entanto, apesar dos objetivos e metas proclamados, não se percebeu formas de avaliação dos componentes da inclusão social ou sobre os temas da educação olímpica.

    Success or failure : social media campaign analysis of wethe15 movement at Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games
    (Gama Assessoria Empresarial, 2021) Mataruna-Dos-Santos, Leonardo Jose ; Guimaraes-Mataruna, Andressa ; Milla, Asli Cazorla ; Noaman, Samar Billi ; Fontinele, Geane ; Wanick, Vanissa
    Wethe15 is a global campaign launched at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games to improve the diversity and inclusion of 15% of the World’s population who have a disability. The WHO estimates that 1.2 billion people are living with some form of disability (15%), and 2-4% are experiencing severe difficulties in functioning (WHO, 2011). Focusing on increase disability visibility, inclusion, and accessibility, the campaign aims to involve the “international organizations from the world of sport, human rights, policy, communications, business, arts and entertainment” to end discrimination (WETHE15 Website, 2021). Inclusivity is not only about acknowledging the diversity, but also acting as one cohesive society. In order to raise awareness, campaigns like Wethe15 need social media more than ever. Diversity is conceptualized as representing a multitude of individual differences and similarities that exist among people (Wellner, 2000). Disability constitutes a minority group, but with heterogeneous aspects that make up a complex discussion. There are 81 huge differences inside this group, that may affect individuals in the sense of mobility, visually impairment, intellectual disability, hearing impairment, and other categories. In this regard, information is one key element to make society aware of disabilities forms and levels and could help to extinguish prejudice and public misconceptions. News about Wethe15 was published in different media channels, however, the official sources of the campaign are the website and two social media networks: Instagram and Twitter @WeThe15. Precisely since the 2008 Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, social media emerged as a phenomenon as an alternative media for marketing and advertising (Liu, 2016). The present research aims to evaluate the content published on the website and social media of the campaign, using a qualitative content analysis approach to examine: how the campaign Wethe15 was framed and publicised during the Paralympic Games between 21st August and 27th August 2021. We aim to analyze the content on multiple platforms on a timely basis and provide scientific insights on how to reach engagement for this movement in the upcoming years.

    Strategies for physical education classes in the context of covid-19 pandemic
    (International Journal of Development Research, 2021-12) Nunes, Hudson Fabricius Peres ; Rosa, Fernando de Freitas ; da Silva, Cláudio Silvério ; Mataruna-Dos-Santos, Leonardo Jose ; Christofoletti, Ana Elisa Messetti ; Fukushima, Raiana Lidice Mor ; Metzner, Andreia Cristina ; Drigo, Alexandre Janotta
    The objective of this study was to propose recommendations and protocols that can prevent or minimize contagion by Covid-19 and provide security for educational establishments to operate. Qualitatively and descriptively, the proposal took into account three possible scenarios: social isolation; gradual adaptation to the resumption of on-site activities with the imminence of the virus; and post-Covid-19 educational reality. Considering that pharmacological treatment is still incipient, facing the virus requires collective awareness, as well as cooperative and supportive actions by the whole society. © 2021, Hudson Fabricius Peres Nunes et al.
