Year 6 App Summit

31 May 2016

In August, the Year 6 students began thinking about a problem that they could solve using an app. Back then, many of them would not have believed that just 8 months later, they would have fully functional prototypes of their apps on their iPads!

During our weekly computing lessons, the children have worked collaboratively to develop the skills necessary to plan their app, manage the project, research the market and design their app’s interface. And all this before they could actually learn how to develop their apps! The children had the choice from two app builders; the Justinmind programme on the computer or Mobincube online.

Their thoughtful designs included apps to assist with finding resources at school, to alleviate boredom with art, and to deal with your problematic cat.

On the day of the summit, the Year 6 Parents were invited to test out the apps and, to add a little competition to the occasion, parents were also given tokens and asked to vote for the apps according to four categories; Relevance, Usability, Thinking Skills and Engagement. Of course, we trusted that none of the parents would simply vote for their own children’s apps!

Overall, the event was a success and the children had an opportunity to share the apps that they had worked so hard to develop. Well done to all the groups!
