Check out the student app winners from the Apps for Good Awards 2016 who have turned bright ideas into real technology products to solve problems in their world.
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.
While celebrating the milestone of 1 million children being reached by the Barefoot Computing Programme I interview 2 teachers from the top of the BT Tower.

Barefoot volunteer Simon Vaughan-Long tells me how rewarding it is to be part of the Barefoot Programme. These workshops support primary educators with the confidence, knowledge, skills and resources to teach computer science.
I chat to Karen Hayton – Senior Manager Tech Literacy Programme BT Group.
We discuss how BT is involved in supporting Barefoot. What is Tech Literacy? How does Barefoot support the computing curriculum?
