The Activation order and Single activation commands are new to Grid 3, and are a great way to create fun activity grids. We’ve created a couple of example grid sets to demonstrate how these new commands work.
You can use the Activation order command to set the order that cells are activated. This could be helpful if you want to practice sentence building or create a cloze activity.
For example, this tongue twister grid set forces you to choose the words in a particular order to complete the sentence.
Simply add the Activation order command to your cell, and select the order you want it to appear in from the drop down menu. The Dim option is selected by default, but can be turned off if you want to avoid guiding the user.
You can reset the activity with the Reset activation order command.
When the Single activation command is added to a cell, it can only be selected once.
In this example grid set the words can be selected in any order – they can only be selected once however, as the Single activation command has been added to each cell.
The completed sentence at the top of the grid acts as a guide.
You can reset the activity by selecting the Reset single activation command.
You may also want to combine this with Clear and Stop speaking commands, to clear the writing area when you start the activity again.
These commands are located under Interactive learning from the Create cell window in edit mode.
