Hopspots in the Danish Shark Tank

By |February 28th, 2019|english-blog|0 Comments

12-year-old Anton presented Hopspots in the Danish version of Shark Tank By Aviaja Borup Lynggaard, Entrepreneur behind Hopspots Our dream is to spread Hopspots across the globe. Wednesday evening we took a huge step in that direction when I, together with my 12-year-old son, participated in the Danish version of Shark tank, and got to show Hopspots during the best possible time on the Danish Broadcasting Corporation TV-show. Back in November we got the opportunity, with a very short notice, to participate in the show. A wonderful opportunity of spreading the word about Hopspots, which I of course said yes to. Hopspots is a small company, and for that reason it can be really hard to spread the word far out. I think that Shark Tank is the best TV-show at the moment and have not missed even one episode of it. That's why it [...]

Make your own interactive stories with Code a Spot DigiPippi made their own stories in Code a Spot The weekend before last we made stories in the Hopspots-game, Code a Spot, at a DigiPippi-event for girls, who are interested in technology. The three groups of girls made their own great stories and programmed the stories in Code a Spot, where they also added sound effects. The stories had the following titles: "The dancing flamingo", "The lonely dinosaur" and "The hedgehog that got scared", and they were all brilliant. Get others to find the order At first the girls worked on creating great stories after which they recorded the stories on the Hopspots. Afterwards, the three groups tried each other stories.

Practice working memory… with Hopspots By Trine Askjær-Jørgensen Hopspots is standing in the middle of the classroom with the 12 colorful spots spread all over the floor because now it's time for the pupils to move while learning. The teacher, Monica, started a game of Sequence. William is next in line to remember the sequence. He starts with the yellow spot next to the speaker stand, then the turquoise, lying far away next to the blackboard, purple... and then... William hesitates... was it the black or the brown spot that was next? His classmates yell "Brown, brown! Brown's next", trying to help him because if he makes a wrong step the game starts over. William steps on the brown spot, which gives out a loud fart and makes all the children laugh. Now it's his turn to add a new spot to the sequence. He [...]
