Limited Capacity seats available

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 content-rich, visually impressive, and professional mobile apps. 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. 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) 2. Getting started ("Learning by Design" approach elements such as ideation and mind-mapping are shown to be foundations for solid app development) 3. App creation (Using a user-friendly, professional online management system to create an app without any prior knowledge of coding) 4. Lab work (Working in groups or as individuals to create the framework for a mobile app, while gaining an understanding of a logo and color's relationships to marketing and branding, copyright considerations, and user interface) 5. Sharing of finished products with the whole group
