Pupils design apps to boost ICT skills

Computer and technology lessons in schools are inadequate and fall short of equipping students with relevant skills, according to education regulator, Ofsted.

But at St Matthew Academy in Blackheath, south London, pupils are engaged in ICT learning, by designing their own phone apps.

Debbie Forster from Apps 4 Good, who has worked with the students, said it helped prepare the pupils for the workplace.
