Studies show that students learn better when they move and actively participate in class. Incorporating movement throughout the school day makes them less impatient and more focused on learning.
Hopspots is developed by Child Experience Design, CxD. Hopspots is an interactive learning tool with additional games and exercises that all focus on movement, play and learning in relation to teaching. Hopspots combines technology and physical space and focuses on the interaction of children. Children get to be part of creating their own educational material and become part of an innovative process. This is expressed through the possibility to self-program Hopspots’s games, for example recording your own sounds. In that way the games can be customized the individual needs of children.
Hopspots consists of 12 interactive, wireless physical spots that are connected to an iPad and a speaker system. Children are empowered to move while learning and playing at the same time.
Hopspots’s games are developed for pre-school and and primary school children (age 2-10). In the spring of 2017 games suited for older children were also launched.
