Abstract

In this contribution, we explained the meanings of “Education” and “Physical” in Physical Education (PE) in the international framework, as there is a global confusion among PE practitioners. To date, there’s a risk of doing sports, physical activity, and obesity prevention without Education, or acquiring theoretical knowledge without movement. Research indicated that social, emotional, physical, and cognitive dimensions are enhanced through PE and Physical Literacy, that is educating through movement. Thus, laying a strong “physical dimension” platform is necessary to achieve a “health and physically educated” child. In conclusion, to optimise wellbeing children must be first "physically educated"
