Join Kevin Brookhouser for an in-depth discussion in this video Design an app with Android App Inventor, part of Teaching Future-Ready Students.
- In this video, I'm going to demonstrate…MIT's App Inventor, another block-based programming platform…that allows users to build mobile apps…for the Android mobile operating system.…Typically, when adults think of computers,…they think of a laptop or a desktop computer.…Kids are more and more used to computing…on mobile devices, and apps are a big part…of that experience.…Building apps is exciting for them…and connects learning computing…to familiar real-world experiences.…
To get started, just Google "android app inventor."…You'll see that there are two app inventors.…I recommend the second one.…The URL is ai2.appinventor.mit.edu.…Once you get logged into App Inventor…with your Google account,…you'll get to the page that shows the apps…that you've created.…Here are all the apps that I've created…using App Inventor.…Yours is probably going to be blank…because you haven't created any yet.…
So the first step is just to click Start a new project.…Let's give our app a name.…You can name it whatever you want,…just make sure there are no spaces or symbols.…
