What is mobile app development for kids?

Mobile app development for kids helps children bring their own mobile app ideas to life. Often referred to as a visual programming language, a mobile app builder like Thunkable and MIT Mobile App Inventor, offers a ‘drag-and-drop’ platform which bypasses complicated code syntax. As a result, it enables anyone, with or without previous coding experience, to build fully functional mobile apps. Mobile app builders are popular amongst the young ones because they are effective, intuitive, and easy to learn. Mobile app development classes for kids are great because children receive personalized attention while developing an understanding of why what they’re learning is important and how to apply it in the future. Plus, classes ensure kids learn concepts and test them out right away, with the opportunity to get feedback so they can be sure they truly grasp the concept. Classes also provide a structured learning path, so that the skills kids learn build on each other.
Why mobile app development classes for kids work

Some decades ago, most of us could not even begin to fathom that our phones would one day start a car, dim our bedroom lights, nor track our children’s location. Speaking of children, did you know that today’s youngest members of our society are the world’s biggest mobile app users? From TikTok to Pokémon to Snapchat to Zoom, their hands are in the “mobile app” pot, and they are taking over in more ways than one.

Kids, by nature, are as curious as they are creative, and are easily attracted to things they can change, edit, and modify - especially when it comes to technology. From configuring a shortcut for a ‘screenshot’ on an iPhone, to uploading and using their own backgrounds during Zoom calls, kids are gravitated toward apps that are customizable. In general, they like being in control and making their own rules. Here we'll cover everything you need to know to get started with mobile programming for kids.

The best mobile app development classes

A precise and well thought-out curriculum makes for the best mobile app development class. But one of the most important concepts is the technique that goes into how mobile classes are taught. For example, when a student is tasked with a challenging assignment, it is important for that student to try to problem solve on their own, before the solution is given by the teacher. Which means the best mobile app classes consist of inquiry-based learning, which is the key to students’ learning success.
