I am a teacher on a mission. Every student should have access to computer science, it starts in my classroom.

There's an app for that
Today the first-year students worked an art project after finishing a test on while-loops.
The groups were asked to describe a problem that students face in school that could be solved with a computer program. They described what the app does, gave it a title, and designed a button for the app. These are the buttons hanging in the hall outside my room.
We had the i-genda, a student planner. Several apps to allow students to check their balances on their lunch accounts in the cafeteria - must be a real need there. My favorite so far is a marauder's map inspired one that lets teachers and students know where administrators are. Maybe not so appropriate, but certainly out of the box thinking on that one.
