Encouraging Students to create an Android app
Walk into a high school and ask how many students to raise their hand if they have a cell phone. Chances are most of them do. As teachers we want students to demonstrate comprehension and knowledge of our subject areas. What if students could do that and create a real product? Something that they can relate to.
Andromo is a good place to start. It allows you to create Android apps without the need of coding. First app is free.
Applications in the classroom:
1. Have students create an app for a sport or club they're involved in.
2. Have students create an app about their school. Include interactive maps, calendar of events, contact list, etc.
3. Doing a lesson on Geometry. Have students gather tools to help them explain the concepts and integrate it into an app they can share with their classmates.
