Learning outcomes

The course towards the means direct students to be able to fashion a basic exercitation about motoric activity in the water, introducing instruments to understand the peculiarity of equilibrium in the water for an additional specialization in the area. So I prepared a didactic sequence for the comprehension of the priority for the solu-tion of the specific problems: from the beginnings to the “capability” about the movement I the water and under the water. Lessons will be illustrate almost in the classroom; in swimmingpool just didactic studios about the pragmatism and security. Every student ‘ll be find a reference point to start the didactic project, about durations, ways about aquatic learning, on the basis of theory “to learn to do by doing, learn to swim by swimming”. We want guide every student to recognize a didactic way for an effective didactic experience in water to create the conditions permitting that everyone stay in water in efficient way. The object of course is that every student, at the end, ‘ll be able to prepare a didactic program about basic motoric activity in the water: everyone must be sixteen hours in classroom and fifteen in swimmingpool.
