Hopspots Code:kit adds purpose to coding that is you create a game that you can play with your friends. First you design the game for which you must apply 21st century skills (critical thinking, creativity, problem solving etc.). Afterwards, you programme the game and improve your computational thinking, digital competencies, your ability to act with technology and programming. Last but not least, you play your game together with your peers and evaluate, play and reflect on it together.
Hopspots code:kit builds on the knowledge we have on combining movement with learning, which has proven to increase the learning both because the flow of oxygen to the brain increases when you move but also because we all learn in different ways – and in this way we can use the body and senses.
Thus, there are lots of good reasons as to why you should work with coding Hopspots. It is different from other coding projects as you get to be physically active and test the end result on your own body.
