10 Years of Apps for Good

Growing the confidence of hundreds of thousands of students

First of all - Thank you!

We don’t often get the chance to reflect on the work that we do, we are a small team and always moving to help support teachers to deliver the best in technology education.

This year we’re taking the opportunity to look back at some of our favourite stories and celebrate all the people that have come together to help us on our mission.

From the teachers delivering our courses, the students who have gone on to do so many incredible things and the industry experts that have given their guidance and support across the years.

Now more than ever, we need to help our young people thrive and support our teachers and schools to make this happen. Here’s to the next 200,000 students!
