Apps for Good(@AppsforGood)is an independent charity that works with teachers to unlock the potential of learners with their free technology courses. Their courses encourage learners to think about the world around them and solve the problems that they find by creating apps and products with machine learning and IoT (internet of things). These range from no experience of coding to more advanced abilities, and includes apps, AI and IoT.
Apps for Good partner with large organisations to enhance the learning experience, provide opportunities for students and funding in order to remain free and accessible to as many young people as possible.
