How often have you heard:
“I have an idea for an app!”
For many students, every idea…is an app idea.
And it’s hard to blame them. Between Instagram, TikTok, WhatsApp, etc. students are spending more than 7 hours per day on their screens.
Of course, they aren’t alone (and they may be on to something)…
Using Apps to Teach Skills
While apps aren’t everything in entrepreneurship, we can leverage our students’ love of them to:
- Teach prototyping
- Enable students to launch an MVP
- Develop a skill (mobile design) they can use throughout their careers
An experience that engages students.
How to Build a 1-Hour App
In the 1-Hour App exercise, students will:
- Use Glide to create a tutorial app (that would cost ~$70k+ to build from scratch)
- Launch their tutorial app
- Start building a custom app for their company (or their resume)
Turn your students’ love of apps into learning opportunities.
