If Kids Designed Apps, from THE Journal

Here’s an interesting article from THE Journal:

Kids, parents, and educators were recently surveyed to gather ideas for “the perfect app” for mobile learning devices. This article outlines the top ideas:
  • An app that helps with music education, including music history, works of famous composers, and “songs that kids can jam out to.”
  • An app that would let kids view videos about school subjects or talk to professionals who use what kids are learning in real life.
  • An all-in-one app that would incorporate an planner, an information database, and a textbook archive, including a 3-D model viewer.
  • An organizer with different “folders” showing how the student in doing in each class they’re currently taking as well as student reactions to their own learning experiences.
  • A game-like interface that allows kids to interact with famous persons from history and share their wisdom with students.
Actually, those sound sort of “do-able,” don’t they! If you’re always wondering, “why didn’t I think of that,” and you’re always on the look-out for that next million-dollar idea, these would be great apps to develop!

… in all your spare time… LOL!
