As a third and fourth grade teacher, Brian Dang (known as Mr. Dang by his students) used PowerApps to create several education apps for teaching, managing his classroom, and gamifying the learning experience. In this in-depth interview, Brian shares his experience meeting Bill Gates, how he got started with PowerApps, how students and teachers are using apps in the classroom, and his vision for PowerApps in the education space. Teachers and students are very excited about using apps in the learning process. Not only do the kids get engaged in the subjects they are learning, but they also explore the technology and authoring tools used to create the custom apps, like the spelling and banking apps. His fourth graders even collaborated in teams to create their own apps, such as one with a Harry Potter theme. Since recording this video, Brian has joined the PowerApps team to execute his vision of bringing PowerApps into the classroom and enabling teachers, students and administrators to "not settle for the apps they have, but create the apps they want."
@Mr-Dang-MSFT, I came across a video about you using PowerApps in your classroom. I am interested in learning more about how to do that especially in the area of gamification as that is something I am doing in my classes but use a spreadsheet to keep up with the data. I am unable to find any specifics and am wondering if you can give me more information.
