Planning to teach Apps for Good in 2015/16? Choose the right delivery model for you

When thinking about delivering Apps for Good, many educators ask us, ‘What are the different ways I can deliver the course in my school?’.

Across our community of Education Partners we see a range of delivery models being used to make sure the Apps for Good course works effectively in their school.  About 60% of our Partners deliver the course during curriculum time, 25% opt to teach Apps for Good as an after-school or lunch-time club, while the remaining schools choose to mix both curriculum and club models.

Today we’re sharing some of our Educators’ experiences to help you identify the best approach for your school. First up we have Joe Santarcangelo and Gary Whiting from Thornleigh Salesian College who discuss how they deliver Apps for Good to secondary level students during curriculum time.

If curriculum time isn’t right for your school, then watch this video of George Faux from Shireland Collegiate Academy, who discusses delivering the course across a series of enrichment days.

After school club is another option used by many of our Educators. David Talbert of Highgate Wood School choose this approach and shares his experiences, as well as tips for other Educators, in the video below.
