Design and prototype an app for #HourofCode – stages 5 and up

Teacher and student learning together with technology

Do you want to spark a generation of App designers in your classroom?

Join Apple Learning Specialists to get prepared and equipped to lead an inspiring, design-based hour of code with your students in stages 5 and up.  

In this session, you will learn how to lead learners in your classroom to: 

  •  identify problems they care about 
  • plan, prototype, and share app ideas that everyone could access and understand. 

Each step features additional resources and tips to simplify the lesson for early learners or extend the activity, using the Develop in Swift App Design Workbook for grades 9 and up. 

Learners also have the option to experiment with code for their app ideas in the Swift Playgrounds app. 

You’ll need to download the Keynote free app on your iPad or Mac if you’d like to follow along in the session.

To make the most out of this session you will need: 

  • iPad or Mac fully charged and ready for action 
  • download the Keynote free app on your iPad or Mac if you’d like to follow along in the session 
  • we recommend having the webinar showing on another machine or projector to enable you to follow along on your device 

Plus if you are keen to start exploring here are some resources to get you started!
