Dataset manuscript 'Learning bean bag throwing: a comparison of explicit, error-strewn, learning and implicit, error-reduced, learning in 5- to 8-year-old children' The study was set-up to elucidate differences between explicit, error-strewn learning and implicit, error-reduced learning in learning a gross motor task (underhand beanbag throwing) in children and to assess the role of working memory in these forms of learning. Typically developing children (n=37) of 5-8 years participated in a three-day underhand throwing training program in a pre- and post-test design and were assigned either to an explicit learning (error-strewn) or implicit learning (error-reduced) group. The effectiveness of the different learning conditions was assessed by the number of hits and quality of the aiming movement. For more information see methodology section in the attached files.
