What does it mean to be a mentor?
The first week is about finding problems and doing some ideation so the sky’s the limit…there are no “bad” ideas. However, as mentors, we need to then bring it all back down to earth reminding the team that apps need to be simple and easy to use. Yvette Oliveau
We have set-up a new Edmodo group. Click on thislink to take you to the group. If you don’t have an account already, create one. Mentors and coaches are advised to create a teachers account. Edmodo is for sharing resources, questions, anecdotes and problems within the BCN Technovation group. It is also a great way to connect with teachers around the world who might be able to help you with your project.
Get your team to join this group. Then we will make small groups so that you can share individual information about your project!
