Schools App Challenge

I've spent a bit of time over the last few days going through entries for the Schools App Challenge, helping with the judging. Such fun.

The challenge is a fantastic enterprise. It is a kind of "magic bullet" that hits a whole bunch of great targets all at once. It gives kids confidence in presenting and discussing their ideas. It helps them learn to work as a team. It engages them with technology. And it gets them thinking about how you can do things to improve the lot of other people.

You can find the entries on the web site and you might like to take a look at them. I found it very cheering.
