Mr Reid Speaks to QA for Education About Apps For Good
Apps for Good is an open-source technology education movement that partners with educators in schools and learning centres to deliver our course to young people 10-18 years of age. They provide the course content, training and connections to their Expert volunteers, and then let teachers do what they are best at – inspiring and guiding young people.
In the course, students work together as teams to find real issues they care about and learn to build a mobile, web or social app to solve them. Like professional entrepreneurs, students go through all key aspects of new product development, from idea generation, technical feasibility and programming to product design, deciding on business models and marketing.
