      App Inventor in Education Workshop - Part 2

      WORKSHOP Learn to use Google APP Inventor to create free Android Apps for STEM projects or cross-curricular projects with an entrepreneurial focus.  App Inventor is a FREE web-based coding platform using the Blockly language. Competitions, such as Tech Girls are Superheroes, utilise this platform for project entries and it has countless potential to bring real-world learning opportunities to the school projects on a variety of themes. In this two part course you will learn all the steps needed for successful projects and create your own app to use for demonstration in the classroom. The first workshop familiarizes you with the development environment and gets you started in coding and design of graphics with time to tweak and improve your concept before beginning the refinement and deployment process in the second workshop. This series of workshops is ideal for any educator looking to expand learning programs with app development and also provides support to educators in the lead up to the Tech Girls are Superheroes competition.
