DDC 2010 Mobile App School (Pilot): Final Presentation: Off the Beaten Path


16 NYC public high school students pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform. Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology ? from thinking critically about mobile phones (what they can and cannot do, what we think they are for, how people use them, and how we think people will be using them in the near future), to taking an idea from brainstorming into development, to thinking about a user story and experience, to communicating an app identity through visual design and graphic elements. These students ideated, mood boarded, story boarded, designed pitches and were all around brilliant.
