CDI Apps for Good

Apps for Good is an open-source technology movement that aims to grow the next generation of problem-solvers and makers; students who can create, market and launch new products that change their world. Apps for Good wants to change technology education forever by teaching young people to be makers - and not just consumers - of digital products. We want to enable young people to solve problems within their communities through technology by building mobile, web and social applications. Apps for Good sees technology as a way of levelling the playing field and we aim to close the gender gap in the sector.

Mission

Apps for Good is an open-source technology movement that aims to grow the next generation of problem-solvers and makers; students who can create, market and launch new products that change their world. Apps for Good wants to change technology education forever by teaching young people to be makers - and not just consumers - of digital products.

Programs

Apps for Good is a programme where we challenge the way business and ICT are taught in schools and enable young people to embrace, imagine and build the technology tools of the future. Our goal is to use technology to create the next generation of problem-solvers and critical thinkers. From a pilot course in 2010 with 50 students in two locations, Apps for Good is now a fast-growing education movement working in 230 schools in the UK and training more than 20,000 students.
