ICT There’s an App for That More than 70 students spent a day during Activities Week creating an iPhone or Android phone App. Students were given a design brief via a video message from singer Gemma Ray to create an iPhone App to promote her latest album and tour. The morning was spent designing graphics and editing photos to make them suitable for the smaller screen of a smartphone using a range of tools in Adobe’s Creative Suite. Students spent time learning to create apps through the online application AppShed, enabling them to create smartphone apps quickly that could be further customized through HTML, CSS or Javascript. Student feedback was very positive about the day – the activity was challenging and rewarding. Students were particularly impressed when they were able to load their apps on to their own phones and see them working. Mr Harvey Leader of ICT
