The website Onderwijsvanmorgen (education for tomorrow) is an initiative of educational solutions provider Malmberg. On this site, Malmberg publishes interesting news items, articles about the latest developments in (ict) education and also topical lesson ideas.
The Onderwijsvanmorgen-App is now available in the iTunes Store. Bas Verhoeven, web designer at Malmberg, has designed this App in his spare time, together with Renée Conradi (editor of OVM) and Yvonne Kuypers, (editor in chief of OVM) at Malmberg.
“The web statistics showed that more and more people visit www.onderwijsvanmorgen.nl through a mobile device. A good reason to look into the possibilities of developing a "low-profile" (low-cost) offer for mobile devices. On the one hand, to offer user-friendly content for mobile users. On the other hand, to learn what is needed to develop an App. What kind of choices do you need to make, and what are the consequences of these choices. This App also offers a different marketing channel to build an even bigger range within Dutch education.”, comments Yvonne Kuypers.

Since the launch a few weeks ago, the App has been downloaded more than 450 times. The App gives you access to the most recently published articles and lesson ideas, always and everywhere. With this free App, the teacher is always informed of the latest news about:
The latest ICT developments at school
Social media applications in class
Practical experiences of teachers and pupils
Learning styles, teaching methodology and media intelligence
Latest trends within education
And you get topical lesson ideas
Currently the App is only available for iPod, iPhone and iPad. At a later stage we might consider developing the App for other devices as well.
