SwimPix is a resource for swimming teachers and tutors involved with the delivery of Swim England’s Learn to Swim Programme and School Swimming and Water Safety Charter. A perfect tool for any swimming lessons, SwimPix were developed with additional needs in mind. SwimPix will help learners to engage with fun, inclusive lessons and achieve outcomes more effectively.
SwimPix are waterproof and can be used in the classroom as well as in and out of the pool to enhance school swimming and to help demonstrate those tricky skills from the side!
SwimPix are suitable for all learners, but especially helpful for those with learning difficulties, anxiety, hearing impairments or where English is not their first language. SwimPix enables inclusive lessons and a simple and fun teaching process.
SwimPix can be used with StoryBoard display panels to enhance lesson communication and reduce anxiety for many pupils. Storyboards are especially useful for those on the autistic spectrum to create communication with meaning.
SwimPix minis can bridge the gap between the pool and home or be used with individual learners.
