    I've been using the MAD-learn program for 3 years,

    And I am just as excited to teach now as I was then. I enjoy watching my students go through the design process, and I enjoy watching my students continue to improve upon and add to their apps long after they have left my class. MAD-learn has truly revolutionized the mobile app development process.

    My students love creating apps on MAD learn!

    Last year we used Google Sites to showcase our projects in my class, but creating apps on MAD learn takes it to another level. Not only are students more engaged, but they are excited about coming to class to learn about the engineering design process and basic computer science skills that will get them far in our 21st century world!

    We talk about preparing our boys for the future

    And for really making an impact in their local communities and the global community as a whole. I think this gives them a great opportunity. There aren’t a lot of opportunities to learn and work with others who are not physically in the same location….and I think That is something that they’ll be experiencing a lot more in the next five to ten years.
