SOLIS ANTUNEZ, Iker. Experience of "Descansos activos mediante ejercicio (¡Dame 10!)" program implementation in High School. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2019, vol.93, e201911087.  Epub 07-Set-2020. ISSN 2173-9110.


Several studies show the benefits of physical activity-based breaks programs for Pre-school and Elementary School students and their effectiveness to increase the amount of physical activity done during school hours. However, these programs are not intended for High School students. The objective of this study was to implement "¡Dame10!" program with a High School group of students and to assess the results.


"¡Dame 10!" activities were designed and enforced at first High School grade during four weeks at a private school of Preschool, Primary and Secondary Education located in San Cristóbal de la Laguna. 54 students and 9 teachers took part. Several surveys were fulfilled to determine participants' assessment about programs' benefits and opinion through the QuickTapSurvey® web application, from which the results were obtained automatically in the form of percentages.


The number of participants' physical activity during school hours increased by 50%. 75.8% of the students felt more active, 58.5% more motivated and 51% showed a better attitude after the activities. 87.5% of teachers considered possible the daily implementation of "¡Dame 10!".


"¡Dame 10!" was effective to increase the amount of physical activity students do during class schedule and provided additional benefits related to attitude and behaviour in the classroom. Likewise, both teachers and students considered possible its application in High School.
