Educational Computing and Mobile Apps

The MIT Center for Mobile Learning, and we have several
UROP slots for work in educational computing and mobility. The current
opportunities involve App Inventor, a programming tool that lets
anyone, create their own apps for Android smartphones. We're run
a major public cloud-based IDE that lets people all over the world
create their own mobile applications and lets schools all over the
world include mobile app programming in their middle and high school
curriculum.

UROP projects can range anywhere from developing new curriculum and
programming language features and trying these with kids and teachers,
to doing critical systems development and design work on a
global-scale Web service for tens of thousands of users.

Positions are available for fall and spring. If you're
