What Is App Smashing?
App smashing is about using multiple apps in tandem to complete a task, and it’s a fantastic approach for EdTech projects. When apps are integrated, you and your students can easily build the foundation of a project in one app and then go to another to create a completely different element. You can then merge these pieces of content together to create a unified final product that’s polished from start to finish.
Why App Smash?
Because app smashing involves several specialized applications working together, it involves creative thinking from your students, maximizes the value created by your applications, and often results in more engaging final products. As long as students clearly understand what they want to achieve and have an outline of the project, app smashing can empower them to craft a more efficient and exciting end result.
