MAD-learn’s web-based mobile app development tool is a holistic set of modules for students to experience the software development lifecycle firsthand.
Students live in a mobile world. We aim to move students from being consumers to creators of technology.
Vital and transferable skills provided by our Design Thinking Process approach support students performance across the curricula.
The apps students design and create can be viewed and shared instantly on any iOS or Android device throughout the process.
Work can be done on any device (from tablets and laptops to desktops) with Internet access.
Coders and non-coders alike can create professional-looking mobile apps with ease.
Students in grades 3-12 will realize there are many skills involved in mobile app development.
The design thinking process is now BUILT-IN to MAD-learn, helping you prioritize critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving, which are essential, future-ready skills.
Review your app based on guidelines, use your QR code to see your app on your own device, test its capabilities, and ensure it looks and functions the way it should.
