This Module Plus is an opportunity to design, develop and implement an app for the purpose of meeting a specific learning need, encouraging your students to engage with a concept, sharing teaching resources or supporting students in making their own apps. The customised app may be the fulfilment of the prototype you created in the learning module. This is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of how to create and use apps in education through a guided process of design, development, implementation, evaluation, review and reflection.
Evolve with QUTeX
You will apply your knowledge and skills to build an app and prepare a curriculum or lesson plan explaining how you will implement it in your educational context. After conducting the learning experience, you will evaluate it by gathering feedback from your students and reflecting on what you have learned before documenting your recommendations.
