Using an extension to Appshed, our very popular App development software we have used for many clubs and workshops. GameMaker focuses on Game Creation. In this case, a game resermbling 2D Minecraft. Whether it’s for a phone or tablet running IOS (i.e.iPhone) or Android (e.g. Samsung) you will learn some essentials of programming a Minecraft game.

Developing smart phone apps in primary schools

We will be using AppShed: an intuitive, easy to use platform that’s perfect for first-timers and loaded with features for the more adventurous.

A taster of programming with basic JavaScript

Get to grips with some key programming concepts and ease your way into your first steps in JavaScript while having fun creating fully functioning apps that you can download onto any smartphone at the end of the course.

Students will:

  • Use an online app-creation tool to design, create and publish mobile apps
  • Understand the key elements of an app
  • Improve problem-solving skills
  • Combine creativity and technology to plan and present information in an alternative format
  • Show evidence of understanding user interaction
  • Be introduced to basic JavaScript programming
  • Create their own unique app to share with friends and family on iPhone or android

NB Apps are created in web browsers, so children do not need a smartphone during the course.
