The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is highlighting the innovative teaching of Boise State’s Yu-Chang Hsu, assistant professor, Department of Educational Technology (EdTech).
MIT’s Center for Mobile Learning published an online story about Hsu’s use of a web-based tool called App Inventor, which allows non-programmers to design applications for mobile devices.
MIT professors and Google officials invited Hsu to share his experiences after they read his article co-authored with Kerry Rice, EdTech chair, and Lisa Dawley, professor, published in the British Journal of Educational Technology. The article is titled “Empowering educators with Google’s Android App Inventor: An online workshop in mobile app design.”
Last fall, EdTech offered the course Mobile Apps Design for Teaching and Learning, one of the first online graduate courses on this topic in the world. You can read more about Hsu on the edtechnotebook blog.
