I wanted the class to have a greater understanding of when looking into the suitability of an app along with the other knowledge and information including ratings and requirements. Hence this project was born. I accessed the App Store and chose an App -‘Pages’ was the app as all of my students are familiar with the app itself. We looked at Details, Reviews, Information,-including category, ratings, compatibility and family sharing. After investigating and breaking these components down in pairs students were asked to construct this ‘App Design Cover Page’. We made a template and students set about creating an app, including description and possible screen shots of their app. Students also created the icon in which the app is recognised on their iPad/iphones. This lead beautifully in to a discussion of copyright and creative licence.
I’ve posted a couple of the students pages so you can see their great work.
