What's The Value Of Appsmashing?

What's The Value Of Appsmashing? | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
The key to a great appsmash is not the number of apps that you manage to smash together into a final product but the pedagogical thought behind the smash itself. Ask  yourself why are we completing this activity? What is the educational purpose of it? If your answers are simply the students will enjoy it or it will greatly enhance collaboration in my class I would ask you to have a rethink.   Many multi app appsmashes are very complex, way too complex in my humble opinion.  In schools we are time poor and an incredibly complicated appsmash can suck hours out of your teaching time. For me, the best appsmashes are those with learning at their heart and by learning I mean intrinsically linked to that which you are teaching and learning in class.

10 Reasons to Teach Coding

10 Reasons to Teach Coding | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how… And that begins with you!

 

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills.
