Smartphone Sensor Applications In Education




Harold Abelson


App Inventor is an Android application platform, which uses a graphical interface that allows users to drag and drop visual components to create a mobile app. App Inventor removes the technical barriers for anyone who wants to program an app. With activity data gathered from smartphone sensors, and real time status updates shared through the smartphone, we are facing increasing challenges in how to handle these big data. To address this complexity, my work aims to build and integrate new sensor components for App Inventor. The development of the sensor components and the use case studies for education are the key areas of focus.


I had two internships for which I was involved in the financial trading platform developments at Investment Banks. I am currently working with two Chinese universities on promoting App Inventor in China.
