About this Project:
We interviewed multiple stakeholders (administration, teachers, students, parents and alumni) asking them all sorts of questions about their jobs, their connection with the school and just about their lives in general. We noted their answers to our questions and brainstormed what an all in one app would look like and how it could change the course of a school’s stakeholders life. We then came together as a group and combined all our ideas into one super app called Dyno Learning. We knew we wanted to create an app that connected the school with its community a lot easier especially after being quarantined because of the pandemic. We wanted to make sure that the line of communication for all was open and easily accessible.
If we were given the opportunity to build our app then it would be able to do wonders for students with learning disabilities. Students from their school would have the convenience of communicating with their teachers and peers. School staff can collaborate with their colleagues. Students will have a range of built-in services that will help them in their day to day school life.

Feedback from the Judges:
Joe Chung is a creative technologist and educator who is interested in technologies that help people learn and connect with each other better. A graduate of MFA Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design and MA Instructional Technology and Media at Teachers College, Columbia University, Joe has experimented with VR/AR, sensors and visualizations to help learners bridge the gap between information and knowledge. Joe is also a trained educator, specializing in secondary school mathematics and computer education.
Its also great that you have features like text-to-speech, which can help students access information without being able to read it, benefiting everyone!
I would have loved to learn more about how your average student or teacher would navigate the app, or learn about their user flow/journey. For Michael Wilson, what would his daily app usage look like? This is an excellent opportunity to tell a story about how helpful your app is in helping your typical users achieve their goals.

I'm a Computer Scientist who loves finding ways to use technology and data for making a better world. I believe that education and deep work are the keys to achieve this goal. I've around 15 years of professional experience as a software engineer, project manager, and educator. I enjoy sharing my experiences and learning with others, so I also have been involved in education along my professional journey teaching computer science and data analytics skills from undergrad to postgraduate students.
Accessibility is a broad area of research that will require not only talent but also people with the love and vision you have. I encourage you to continue learning more about accessible user interface design and continue the professional (and even fun) path of universal design.
I like an idea of rewards. It is an excellent idea with kids in addition to grades.
Ability to communicate with each other is also a good feature, especially if a question is simple and student needs to ask teacher instead of sending email.
Good job! Continue working on a project!
