Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This unit will enable pupils to create a complete app with full takeaway functionality on an iPhone, Android, Windows or Blackberry smartphone as well as a desktop web browser in class. Pupils will plan and implement their own projects using skills from a teacher demonstration app which creates a guide to the Periodic table including image galleries, video, interactive maps, and web links. Pupils will also be able to program extensions to their own apps using the built-in language Blockly. The unit will be assessed using an assessment portfolio and the completed apps can also be made available for parents and teachers to view online.
