The training went very well. It gave teachers a great snapshot of potential features and uses while making sure we were well equipped to implement the program in class."

I really appreciated having time to actually use MAD-learn in the same way we will ask kids to use it. I think that will be a powerful help when we go to work with kids."

I can count my many favorite features about MAD-learn. There is a fantastic teacher portal that has lesson plans, slideshows, worksheets, and rubrics already made. Also, MAD Learn provides live teacher support. The interface is very user friendly, and it's easy for students to follow along with tutorials. I am very happy with the Customer service and technical support, they are top notch. The development team continues to improve upon the interface and design process making it even easier for teachers and students to use. I can say that MAD Learn has truly revolutionized the mobile app development process."

    Students learned how to create an app,

    which is great in terms of progressive technology and new/exciting ways to present information. I envision a page on our school website where we can ‘promote’ our students' productions. I like the idea of posting the codes to our Twitter as well."

    A large part of my curriculum is digital literacy and citizenship

    This was an excellent tool for both of those topics. I love having the students take ownership of their screens, and I am already planning for next year when I will take this much further with the design aspect ".

    I would recommend MAD-learn to other teachers because it is an awesome program

    As a teacher, the curriculum is very clear to follow. Students learn all of the important elements that are essential to creating a viable product, whether to be used as a unique presentation tool or an app for global consumption. Moreover, you do not have to be a coder or a computer science teacher to teach MAD-learn! "
