How can teachers incorporate active learning into teaching?

Studies show that students learn better when they move and actively participate in the 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. The children get to be part of creating their own educational material and become part of an innovative proces. 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 the children.

Hopspots consists of 12 interactive, wireless physical spots that are connected to an iPad and speakersystem. 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). During spring of 2017 games suited for older children will be launched.

Programming

The games can easily be expanded with personal sounds as the pupils becomes co-creators and can record and make their own games. In that way it is possible to become producers of their own content rather than just consuming. This is a simple way of programming that engages children and makes it possible to work with a wide range of subjects.

 Language Learning

Language learning is an important part of Hopspots where children can strengthen their language and learn new words and contexts. By listening, reading and writing new words children can expand their vocabulary.
