21st Century Skills - design an APP!
Students will create an APP idea that doesn't exist already. First, they will brainstorm issues that people face today such as time management, weight loss, etc. Then, they will partner up to create an App that will solve or help with a problem. In order to do this, students will fill out an application as well as compare their App to a similar App on the market already. They will consider price, App's capabilities, problems in developing the App, and more. Finally, they will draw the icon that will appear on the technology device. The pretend application is included.
Even though they aren’t actually creating the App for real and just doing the beginning phases, there is nothing that says students cannot approach a company about buying their App idea! There are plenty of online App design companies that are willing to pay people for great App ideas and give them a percentage of the profits just for thinking it up.
This really makes students create, design, collaborate, and problem solve. Let's get those students practicing 21st Century Skills! The best thing is that it's FREE!
