The observation is a selective process , differs from the simple look or see, as the viewer’s eye is led from the assumptions made by it , aiming for the relevant information in the most accurate and effective way .
Without going into more complex definitions that constitute the observation theory, there is limited to indicating the main guidelines that ” MORESWIM” intends to respect during its activities , namely :
- “Direct observation” : requires a complex organization in the true and proper observation , recording techniques and analysis of any event which may occur in a certain time and environment ( field or laboratory ) ;
- “Natural” observation : is performed by avoiding the generation of external event that could interfere with or alter the spontaneous appearance of a certain behavior.
In the context of ” M.O.R.E. Swim” , the observation is carried out with the s shooting/recording systems , respecting as much as possible the criterion of non-invasiveness in the environment pool .
One of the effects of a low instrumental invasiveness , during the observation , is certainly represented by the achievement of a good level of naturalness of the observed behavior.
