Teacher Paul Gallanagh on how Apps for Good's IoT course inspired students to think creatively to solve problems
Our school canteen was strangely quiet during the period we worked on Apps for Good with our first year pupils at Dunoon Grammar School in Argyll, Scotland – with many of our young people choosing to spend their lunch times working together on their app ideas, supplementing the class time spent on this pioneering project.
Not many school-based learning experiences can stake the claim of pupils sacrificing social times, but it was evident Apps for Good sparked something positive in our junior pupils from the get go.
