- Functional Tools: The creation of an app that allows you to put extensive data at your fingertips is powerful to assisting teachers in the classroom.
- Great Experience: Building apps for real classroom settings not only prepares future teachers for the challenges they will face, but also allows them to improve interfaces that they will be using in dynamic settings.
- With a tool that can easily be created, manipulated, and updated students are able to build other apps that will continue to meet their needs in the future as changes occur in their classes.
- This assignment also promotes collaboration between students so that they can better refine their apps.
