Making apps for iPads and other platforms used to be something that required difficult coding and was not possible with Primary aged students.

Not any more!

In this session I will introduce free tools for Mac and Windows that allow students to explore their creativity in creating cross platform apps for iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Android, Windows and Mac through drag and drop visual programming.

In the last year a group of ESF primary students in Y5 and Y6 have been learning to create their own apps and have some of their creations now ready for submission to the iTunes app store, Google Play store, Windows Store and Mac appstore. This project has grown to include students in several schools who are working collaboratively online through their projects. These tools are some of the best applications of maths skills that I have seen.

I will share some of their apps and the story of their learning. Attendees will get an initial taste of how to use the tools and can take away resources to get started making their own apps or to work with groups of students in schools.
