At TapTeach, we have a simple belief that by creating an environment in which educators, designers and developers can collaborate, we can evolve not only educational applications, but the classroom itself. And we want to begin creating that environment right here in Kansas City with the first annual Back-to-School AppFest Weekend.
This fun and educational event will provide an environment for educators to present, mold and outline app ideas; ask questions of and learn best practices from designers and developers; and take assessments on device proficiency from TechOrchard, the leading expert in mobile device management.
At the Back-to-School AppFest Weekend, educators, designers and developers will form powerful partnerships which will lay the groundwork for new and exciting educational apps, as well as an ecosystem where educators will leverage the power and immediacy of modern technology, all to benefit the students of today and tomorrow.
Located at 1820 Westport Rd Kansas City, Missouri
