TOPICS & CATEGORIES
Courtesy of ADL
The ADL Initiative is hosting its third annual Learning App Challenge. App developers are invited to submit mobile learning Apps designed to support Education, Training, or Performance Support. The targeted learners can be adults or students in grades K-12.
The objective of the Challenge is for contestants to create an App that will help students acquire knowledge and understanding by manipulating tasks, simulations, or situations that require students to critically evaluate what they are learning.
Judges will evaluate the Apps and select the Challenge winners based on the following criteria: How well the App provides a learning solution to a stated problem; Technical quality of the App; and User experience and usability. Extra points will be awarded to Apps that integrate with an existing ADL project, capability, or research focus.
Challenge winners will receive a certificate and be invited to demonstrate their entry during ADL’s iFest 2014 event, scheduled to be held 21-23 October. iFest attendees will participate via virtual conferencing – no travel is necessary. The Challenge began accepting submissions on 3 March and will remain open until 2 September. There is no cost for entering.
