013 : Apps for Good : Research, design and make digital products in your school.

Listen to this episode

Heather Picov, UK Managing Director explains how Apps for Good equips students to research, design and make digital products and take them to market. But apps are not the point of what we do. Our goal is to produce more able, self-confident, collaborative young people, ready to make a difference to their world. Most children are consumers of technology; we want them to become makers using technology.
