Third-graders from Jackson Avenue School became app designers for a day. As the culmination to a project-based learning activity, students showed off their apps, which were designed to help others at the local or global level.
Presentations included songs, posters, Keynotes and iMovie videos, which were completed on district-issued iPads. Students created apps to assist organizations such as Make-A-Wish, Feeding America and the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Representatives from many of the organizations attended the expo, with genuine interest in the students’ ideas.
