Ideas on how to use SwimPix . . .

… in sequences to storyboard a lesson to reduce anxiety amongst nervous swimmers.
… individually to explain a skill or stroke.
… in the water to demonstrate.
… out of the water, especially useful for hard to demonstrate skills.
… to enhance communication.
… as a reward, a swimmer picks a skill card to try - giving ownership to your swimmers.
… on top of floats to help engage learners during an activity or as a game to find
     different SwimPix then copy the actions
… for behaviour management, especially “hold the side and stay up to listen”
alongside the cards, use short verbal instructions.
… for non-English speaking learners as a visual aid. 
… for swimmers who have hearing difficulties to communicate with meaning
