MAD-learn is a Mobile App Development program that uses the Design Thinking Process for every student, in every class and every grade, preparing them for tomorrow’s careers.
Tomorrow’s technology (and therefore tomorrow’s jobs) will be centered around cloud-based mobile applications. Therefore, it is critical to have our students prepared with not only the technological skills, but especially the problem solving skills that will be necessary for the future workplace. The digital gap is no longer about access to technology, but what students can do with the technology. And, with MAD-learn, that value can be realized today as well as tomorrow.
How is MAD-learn different from other coding programs?
MAD-learn is NOT a coding tool. Our focus is to garner the interest of 100% of students (as opposed to just 10-20%) in understanding the overall process of product development. Our company has entrepreneurs, marketers, product strategists, designers, coders, testers, sales and support people, and many more critical functional areas. With MAD-learn we expose students to all of these kinds of roles, not just coding – so they can truly have passion-driven career choices long term.
Is MAD-learn appropriate for students of different ages and levels?
MAD-learn is most appropriate for students in grade levels 3-12. Depending on the focus of a specific class, our program can be implemented in numerous ways to fit the needs of any classroom. Give us a call to learn how to best implement MAD-learn for your students.
Can teachers who aren’t technology specialists use MAD-learn?
YES! We built MAD-learn specifically so that any teacher, in any classroom can use app development as a project-based learning tool, an artifact of understanding for a module, a group collaboration, a quick experience or an in depth experience. MAD-learn enables every teacher to be engaging and relevant for students in today’s 21st Century environment.
