smiley DISCUSSION POSTApp development in the classroom, 5 June - 5 July

When students make apps, they learn about valuable STEAM skills like coding, programming, graphic design, and content creation and how to solve real-world problems with digital design. Whether tackling challenges at school, within the community, or even on a global scale – knowing how to build apps empowers students to meaningfully change their environment through technological intervention. In this discussion as we highlight some apps students can create and the contexts by which they might use these. This discussion will be hosted in the Technologies group.
