After sketching your apps, it is time to try TouchDevelop & Windows App Studio. Both websites are designed for creating apps. Go to the links and explore them. There you will find some videos and tutorials that can help you to use them. If you need more help, please go to YouTube and find videos from which you can learn and share with your friends.
Your task is not to create apps now. Just go to the links and play to decide which one you are going to use when you start your app.
If you have any questions, please let the conversation go below. All the best!
As we discussed in our face-to-face meeting at school. Our main goal in the second part of our project is to create an app that helps students in the first-year grade communicate with each other in a secure environment, study their subjects together, and solve their problem themselves. Of course, this will be under the eyes of their teachers and parents.
All what you are going to do now is to put your ideas on a paper using your pencils. Work in groups and start drawing how your apps will look like on a blank white paper, then upload it to this post to be ready for the design stage at the beginning of your mid-term holiday.
I am looking forward to seeing your sketches. All the best!
Every day, you play games and use many apps on your mobile phones. Have you ever thought of creating an app or a game yourselves? Don’t think a lot! Now, you can do it in a few steps using one of Microsoft free tools called “TouchDevelop”. It allows you to write codes, edit, run and share them with the whole world.
To share your love for coding, it is time to spend an hour of code during this week (Dec. 8 – 14, 2014). All students from different corners of the world take part in this event.
What are you waiting for?
Go to this link and start your journey. Once you finish, upload your certificate below in the comments box. All the best!
Welcome Back! Really, I am so happy to meet you online again.
As we discussed in our meeting at school, there are many things to do together. Are you ready? I am sure you can do more and more to help your friends learn better. In this stage of project, you are not only learners who look for new things to do, but also a group of leaders who will create educational apps and give a hand to students when trying out your own products.
Now, please tell me how you feel about your new job in the project. Can you be good leaders?
My students have done an amazing job. Please, kindly leave a comment to encourage them to do more or thank them for their great efforts. If you like to ask them or their teacher any question about the project, please feel free to ask it here.
It is the end of our project. Really, I don’t have enough words to thank everyone of you. You always surprise and amaze me. I’m proud of you all. Your hard work to create new things, persistence to do the best, team work, helping each other, and encouraging each other are among a lot of things I learned from you. Your collaboration is a great example to be followed in other projects. BigThanksForYou!
At last, we can celebrate our success. Please, discuss with each other when you want to have our party. Don’t think about where it will be held because our Facebook Group is the suitable place that we have now.
Here are my presents for you:
If you would like to download your Badge and the Project Mug, please let me know to share them with you on our Facebook Group.

Really, it is a very great chance to work with you all. You were so hard-working, creative, and helpful to each other. Throughout all these weeks, you did a great job. Although it took a lot of our time, we learned a lot of skills in this project.
Please, let us know what things you have learned. You can talk about the skills of English you improved, for example, writing, reading, speaking, listening, using vocabulary and grammar, pronunciation, punctuation, translating and correcting mistakes. You can also talk about the tools you have learned to use and how you worked in groups to complete tasks.
Dear students, It is time to assess your work in week 6. Checking the rubrics of the tasks, I will give you one of these levels (Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Needs Improvement).
Group 1: Creating Flyers
Esraa Mahmoud, Hasnaa Thabet, Heba Mohamed, and and Smaa Ashraf.
Your level is “Excellent 97%“.
All the information you used is related to the topic you are talking about. Your images are so attractive and big enough to attract attention. You successfully chose bright colors and suitable fonts for your flyer. The blue color background is so comfortable to the readers’ eyes and encourage them to read what you have done. There are no mistakes in grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
Your video is also a wonderful work in which you managed to put your voice and the flyer’s images together. The only small problem you have is mispronouncing a few words in your recordings. Also, you didn’t use titles on some photos you used in your video.
Again, what I liked the most is your cooperation and working together to complete your task. Great work!!
Group 2: Creating Videos
Nourhan Ahmed: Your level is “Excellent 98%“. All your images are related to what you say in the recording, but one is not clear enough. You also need to add more images that go with your recording. You successfully selected transitions, but you repeated them on two slides that are next to each other. It is great to use different transitions from one slide to another. You used titles and captions well on images, but you need to add more. There are no mistakes in grammar and spelling. You recording is very clear and has no mistakes in grammar or pronunciation. Really, you have done an amazing job. What I liked the most is your persistence to do the best. Thanks so much for revising the video many times to make it better.
Esraa Ahmed: Your level is “Excellent 97%“. All your images are related to what you say in the recording, but one or two of them are not clear enough. You successfully selected a great group of transitions and visual effects. Your titles and captions add lot of meaning to your images. However, sometimes I can’t see the words because their colors are not well-chosen. Also, there are a few mistakes in spelling and grammar (e.g., “out Side” instead of “outside” and “to communication” instead of “to communicate“). Your recording is so clear and has no mistakes in grammar or pronunciation. To sum up, your video is so attractive and worth watching. I also love your persistence to try and try many times to make your video better.
Gehad Karram, Ghada Mohamed, and Omnia Hassan: Your level is “Excellent 93%“. All your images are related to the topic of the video, however, there are a few of them are not clear enough. Your video is so easy to follow, but you used only one transition (to move from slide to the next) for all the video. You used a few of titles and captions. You only depended on voice and images. Titles and captions help people to be focused while watching your movie. Your recordings are very clear and there are no mispronounced words. The speech comments you used at the beginning of the video have only one misspelling “You wrote take instead of talk“. In general, your video is great and full of energy. What I liked the most is your cooperation and collaboration to complete this great work.
Group 3: Creating Posters:
Safy Sabry: Your level is “Excellent 90%“. Your information is related to the topic, but you need to add more to make your message clearer. All your images are attractive and related to your idea. I noticed you put a lot of images that don’t add meaning to your poster. You colors are bright, but you didn’t successfully choose colors of fonts that go with the background. The fonts are clear enough to read, however, sometimes I find some words difficult to be read.There are no mistakes in grammar, spelling and punctuation. The links to other websites, recordings and videos are great. What I liked the most is your well-organization for the poster.
Dana Ayman: Your level is “Very Good 87%“. Your information is related to the topic, but you need to add more to make your message clearer. Two of your images are attractive and related to your idea. However, there is another one image that is not related. Your colors of the background and fonts are great and bright. Have you noticed that your selected background is not free? The fonts are clear enough to read, however, sometimes I find some words difficult to be read.There are no mistakes in grammar, spelling and punctuation. The links to other websites, recordings and videos are great. You didn’t write any sentences that can help your audience to know what you want to say. Really, I appreciate your hard work.
Sarah Nageh, Kholoud Hussein, and Sarah Ahmed. Your work in the group poster deserves “Very Good 80%“. Your poster background is so lovely, but it is brighter than the message you want to tell the audience, in addition to one misspelled word “You wrote Communicat instead of Communicate“. I loved the way you put the links of your work during the project, but they are not enough. One can’t know your message unless he or she goes to the links. The video is not related to your idea. It doesn’t add meaning to your poster. The images are attractive, but only one that shows how you communicate. I know if you have more time, you can make this poster better.
What I liked the most is your cooperation and working together to complete your poster.
Please, feel free to ask me any questions about your level.
