Kids Included Together (KIT)

Everyone seems to have an app these days. Many organizations are interested in developing an app, but do not have an understanding of what such a project entails. Before you spend time and money creating an app, it’s important to become familiar with terms, resources, and app-user behaviors.

In this session, you will learn the basics about creating apps for learning. You will explore the differences between native versus web apps and learn what to consider when designing functionality, including the importance of having a user-interface strategy. You will understand the resources needed to get you started when you’re ready to build. You will leave this session with an app-building implementation-plan worksheet, along with an understanding of mobile apps and how to implement them for your own organization.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The difference between a native and web application
  • Important strategies for designing your app
  • Considerations for functionality and the user interface
  • An overview of basic development tools
  • Resources to help you get started

Novice designers, project managers, managers, and directors who are new to the world of apps.
