App Development Project (Including Support)


App Development Project (Including Support)

This project based learning pack has been designed as a standalone, ‘off the shelf’ project to support teachers.

Gaia deploys its expertise  within its Studio Services team to work alongside teachers and students and weave the use of educational ICT into real teaching and learning. This allows students and teachers to work together with real programmers, digital artists and video technicians.

This project includes:

  • documentation
  • lesson planning adapted to your needs
  • 4 days online or remote support
  • plus additional technical support to finalise and publish your app.


Product Description

The aim of the project is for pupils to create and build an App. The project is divided into three steps:

Unit 1 - Content: This helps to define the nature and organisation of the content by breaking it down into a series of steps.

Unit 2 - Design: How to build a User Interface (UI) for the App by mocking up how it should look and work.

Unit 3 - Production: This focuses on how to create the App by using a software framework.

Each of the steps contains:

  • Lesson Tasks – suggested exercises for pupils to work through in order to complete the project
  • Teaching Tips – ideas on how to increase learning, help pupils complete the exercises and general advice with regards to the project
  • Starter Questions – suggested questions to help prompt pupils and introduce new ideas or concepts
  • Learning Outcomes – pupil learning statements, ‘I can’ statements and digital literacy outcomes for each example task
