Mobile Apps for Teaching, Learning, and Educational Research - This course will focus the design, development, and uses of mobile apps for teaching and learning. We will explore a wide range of apps and contexts and get hands on experiences using and developing apps for learning. The course will be structured around three themes: (1) review of empirical research on the design of apps for learning and health education, (2) review and analysis of existing apps for educational contexts, and (3) hands-on creation of apps using existing toolkits for design and implementation (e.g., AppInventor2). In the course, you will learn how to critically evaluate existing apps that are claimed to be educational, identify trends of app usage by educators, students, and in research, and engage in class projects with other students to design, build, and share prototypes. No programming skills are required to take the course.
