You can download the Hopspots app on as many iPads you like, and it doesn’t have to be connected to the spots and the speaker unit when you make your own games. Thus, you can easily prepare games ahead of class.
Mix’n’Match works best in smaller groups. If you prepared a game that will activate one group of students you have to think of what the other groups will be doing in the meantime – or they can watch the ones playing and learn from that.
The students can also make their own content – in that way everyone is activated easily: Divide the students into groups and have the groups make their own games. Depending on the number of iPads you have, the students plan their game content and take turns at programming it in the app and playing each others games. The players take turns at stepping on two spots and listening for the content. Once a player has made a match the two spots can be collected as points – adding an element of competition to the game.
You can easily make more pairs than there are spots. In that case, the game will rotate the pairs automatically, using different pairs next time you play.
