BYOA = Build Your Own App

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, teachers and administrators are introduced to a professional, online, app-building tool they can use to make their own mobile apps. They will learn that building apps does not have to be a tedious and daunting project. Our "coding to learn" approach gives students a platform that allows them to easily build a content-rich, visually impressive, and professional mobile app. The program, called MAD-Learn, enables students to quickly see the finished product, and use technology creation as a means of serving the community, solving problems, building entrepreneurialism, and sharing ones ideas with the world.



1. Intro (Informational apps vs. Gaming apps, uses/examples)

2. Getting started (ideation and mind-mapping)

3. App creation (using the CMS)

The workshop will be divided into five parts:


1. Introduction (The importance of teaching mobile app development, the "Coding to Learn" approach, Informational apps vs. Gaming apps, uses/examples)
