Students Design App Ideas to Serve Public Art

According to the Pew Research Center, 78 percent of teens have a cell phone and almost half own smartphones — and those phones are likely filled with apps. Teenagers can learn to go beyond the role of consumer in today’s digital marketplace.  With a little know-how, and they can solve a real-world problem from the palm of their hand by creating their own app.

In this activity, students design an app idea to tackle a problem related to public art in their community. For inspiration, you can show your class an accompanying series of videos of students presenting their app ideas.  Then walk them through the Mobile Design 101 lesson as they find app-based solutions to community challenges!
