Apps for Good
Apps for Good is a technology education movement that aims to grow a generation of problem solvers and digital makers. Apps for Good wants to transform the way that technology is taught in schools, unlocking the talent of young people and helping them to be more able, self-confident and collaborative, ready to make a difference in their world.?? The Apps for Good course is built around students finding a problem they want to solve and building, launching and marketing a solution using technology. Alongside improving their digital competency, students develop essential 21st century skills such as problem-solving, communication and team work. ?? Apps for Good partners with educators in schools and learning centres, who deliver the course to young people aged 10-18 years. Apps for Good provides the course materials, ongoing continued professional development and connections to Expert volunteers, and then let teachers do what they are best at – inspiring and guiding young people.?? From September 2014, Apps for Good is being delivered to over 25,000 students within more than 470 Education Partners across the whole of the UK, growing by 50,000 percent since launch in 2010 with two centres and 50 students. The majority of Apps for Good Education Partners deliver Apps for Good as part of the curriculum.
