Computer Club

Children in Years 5 and 6 are taking part in an after school computer club where they are learning how to create their own Android apps. 
 
 
They have already learned:
 
  • about the global market share of Android vs iOS
  • that Android apps are built using Java and XML
  • that XML code governs the visual layout of apps
  • the camel-case name tags for 3 different app 'views' in XML and how to open and close them
  • 4 different XML attributes and how to edit them
We will keep this page updated with their progress!
The children worked hard over 9 weeks to create their apps.  Each child created music, chose images and wrote questions for their quizzes.  
 
When all apps were complete, children voted on the top 3 to be uploaded to the app store.
