Students Create Android Apps

ConVal students learn how to make their own Android apps with the MIT AppInventor, an innovative program jointly created by MIT and Google.

AppInventor transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks. The simple graphical interface grants even inexperienced coders the ability to create a basic, fully functional app within an hour or less.

In this unit, students go through the entire process of concept creation, learning about step-by-step procedural programming, actual app creation prototyping, and testing with a network-connected ASUS tablet.

The final step is the presentation of the finished app to the class.
