Swim England and the Institute of Swimming have created a free online resource, ‘Mobile Devices in Swimming Lessons’, to support the growing trend towards mobile devices and apps being used by teachers to manage Learn to Swim programmes.
Rebecca Cox, Managing Director of the Institute of Swimming said: “Online technology in the leisure sector is increasingly replacing the traditional clipboard and pen. This free interactive resource provides swimming teachers with guidance on how to use mobile devices safely and effectively, to take registers and mark pupils’ progress. It also gives tips on how to use the data collated to manage expectations and discuss progress with the parents/carers of swimmers.”
Katy Butterfield, Area Sports Development Manager at Places Leisure said: “I love this Continued Professional Development (CPD) tool. It’s pitched just right and has all the relevant information. I think it’s one of the best online CPD’s the Institute of Swimming has created, they are really embracing the technology evolution and safeguarding its users.”
