Martin awarded $50K from Google for Android education project
Professor Fred Martin has received a $50,000 award from Google's education group to create resources for users of App Inventor for Android.
App Inventor is a system developed by Google to allow novice programmers to develop applications for their Android phones with an easy-to-use visual programming environment.
With the award, Dr. Martin's group will develop a web site for App Inventor users to publish and share their projects. This “Community Gallery” site is being modeled after MIT's successful Scratch site.
The project team includes faculty and students from Wellesley College, Mills College, Trinity College, the University of San Francisco, and MIT.
