I am so excited. I learned something new today. An online contact, Med Kharbach from Canada, shared with me 3 nifty Web 2.0 tools where teachers can create our own Apps. The best thing is that we don't need to understand HTML coding to do it. Isn't that fantastic! The 3 included this blog allow us to create our own Apps in only a few moments and the best part, completely free. I am creating an App for my writing class today. I can't wait! If you have time this week create your own App and let's share experiences.
AppMaker from an IPhone - AppMakr is a do-it-yourself app creation platform that lets anyone make their own iPhone and Android apps—no coding required. Who can use AppMakr? Anybody!
BuildApp is the established “do it yourself” platform to make iPhone/Android apps, with no coding required. The self service web platform provides easy way for any organization to create their own mobile (iPhone, iPad, Android) applications and publishing materials.
MIT App Inventorr - There are a wealth of teacher resources available on the MIT App Inventor tool Teachers can now connect wirelessly to phones and tablets! I think the wireless feature is awesome. Educators are discovering innovative ways to engage their students in building mobile apps. IT instructors can also use the MIT App Inventor to teach introductory computer classes. It is a great tool to teach programming to high school students.
I am also sharing a video created by an IT student from YouTube explaining how to make an app. If you get a chance to try your hand at creating your own App, be sure to share your experience and our App in the comment window below this blog post.
Happy exploring and experimenting! Enjoy!
