Fostering entrepeneurship through the use of technology for social good
AppEducation focuses on the design and creation of applications for mobile devices, the development of their prototypes and the design of the go-to-market strategy. Offered as a computer science elective in Catalan high schools, the main purpose of this project is for students to design and develop apps that give users the ability to solve a problem or offer some type of help in doing so.
Based on a project-based learning methodology, this project encourages students to work collaboratively and organize themselves as if they were a real company, hence promoting team work in the classroom, entrepreneurship and a sense of social responsibility, all while developing digital skills.
In addition, students and teachers receive mentoring from industry experts who volunteer their time to improve the learning outcomes and offer a vision of the industry.
