Coding: App Making

Where would we be without apps? In this MediaLab experience, your ākonga will bring block-based coding languages to life, using MIT App Inventor to create their app for Android, the world’s most popular mobile platform.
Students will engage in creative problem solving, logical thinking and decision making. This programme encourages students to collaborate and share ideas to solve problems.

Coding: App Making also supports the following curriculum links:

Designing and developing digital outcomes – Progress outcome 2 

Students identify the specific role of components in an input-process-output system and how they work together, and they recognise the “control role” that humans have in the system.

Key Competencies

• Thinking
• Managing Self
• Using Language, Symbols and Text

My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.

Really positive experience. The students were all engaged for the nearly two hour session and didn't want it to end.
