Hopspots a part of new Science Gym in Sweden By Trine Askjær-Jørgensen - Communication Back in April Hopspots participated in the SETT tradeshow in Stockholm Sweden, where I was at Lekolar's stand, showing Hopspots to lots of interested visitors. Several times Caroline and her co-workers from Region Kronoberg in Sweden stopped by me to check out Hopspots.  They all fell in love with the interactive learning tool immediately and thought it would be perfect for their future Science Gym, which was to open this summer. Shortly after the tradeshow in Stockholm Caroline contacted us as she was ready to get started with a set of Hopspots in Sweden. SO ready that we sent it to them in the middle of the summer holiday, before we even had the time to go there and give them a start-up course ourselves. This August we then visited Caroline [...]

SEN: "Everyone can participate in their own way" By Trine Askjær-Jørgensen - Communication A couple of weeks ago I visited Geelsgårdskolen in Virum, Denmark, where they had just bought a set of Hopspots. I did that because we at CxD were quite curious about how their first period of time with the interactive tool had been and not least to learn more about how they use Hopspots in this SEN.  Back in January when we participated in BETT-show, a huge international EdTech tradeshow in London, we were paid a visit by Line Torp from Geelsgårdskolen at our stand. Line had never seen Hopspots before, this was the very first time, but she immediately spotted that Hopspots was really some for the kids back home at "her" school. Line works in the therapeutic department at Geelsgårdskolen, and shortly after having returned home from the tradeshow, she contacted us [...]

6th graders: "The Island scores 8,5 out of 10 as teaching material" Imagine that you are stranded on a deserted island with your classmates! What would you do first? How would you get food, make decisions and create a community on the island? Those are the kinds of questions that a 6th grade at Samsøegade Skole in Aarhus, Denmark, had to solve together during a month of playing the interactive game, The Island, for Hopspots in class. The pupils said the following about the experience... ”We have gotten much better at listening to each other and discussing things" ”I think I have gotten better at expressing myself in writing” "I think it is great that we get to move during our teaching". ... when we visited them to hear about what they learned from the game.

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 [...]

They had to listen to the individual parts of the stories on the spots and try to find the correct chronological order to place [...]
