Apps for Good is an education technology charity that believes all young people should be empowered to take action on the things they care about most. By providing free tech innovation courses to schools and giving teachers ready-made education content, young people from all backgrounds can develop computing and essential skills to create a brighter future through technology.
App for Social Action educates young people about social action and social change and enables them to take action by building a social action app. This is a course designed to be delivered in Key Stage 3 curriculum time by computing teachers.
Throughout the course, students work in teams to build an innovative social action app. They get to grips with the fundamentals of social action, building their knowledge and understanding, whilst also thinking about what’s important to them and their communities.
They learn, practise and reflect upon their progress across all eight essential skills, social action and social change as well as computing and digital literacy skills.
