Apps for Good

apps4goodv1

Apps for Good is an opensource education programme that aims to build the next generation of problem solvers and makers: students who can create, launch and market new products that change the world. In the year-long course, students work together
in teams, finding real-life issues they want to tackle and how best to solve
them through technology. Students take their idea through the complete product
development process – from feasibility research and deciding on business models
to product design and marketing. The course culminates in the national Apps for
Good competition, in which the best app ideas from our 20,000 students are
launched commercially.

Apps for Good is delighted to continue its close relationship with
Shireland Collegiate Academy. As one of the earliest adopters of the Apps for
Good programme, Shireland are dedicated to bringing creative learning
programmes to their students and using technology to develop more exciting and
innovative ways for students to learn. The staff at Shireland have always been
forward thinking and have gone above and beyond their role of partner school,
helping us trial and develop new areas of the course and hosting regional
training. They were also named Apps for Good School of the Year in 2012.

In recognition of Shireland’s dedication and status as a Teaching School, we have
recently awarded the academy to be one of 12 Apps for Good Ninja Education
Partners. Shireland are the Ninja Education Partner for the West Midlands and
are supporting Apps for Good in building and supporting the regional community
of Apps for Good Education Partners, promoting the Apps for Good programme and
acting as a support network for Education Partners across the region.”
