“LearningApps.org is a Web 2.0 application, to support learning and teaching processes with small interactive modules. Those modules can be used directly in learning materials, but also for self studying. The aim is to collect reusable building blocks and make them available to everyone. Blocks (called Apps) include no specific framework or a specific learning scenario. The blocks are therefore not suitable as complete lessons or tasks, instead they must be embedded in an appropriate teaching scenario.”

quotation from https://learningapps.org/about.php

Teacher prepared some exercise using LearningApps application. Finaly task for students is to prepare their own exercise for the teacher. They can decide by themselves on the subject matter, related to on-going main subject.

This is a useful way to build  collection exercise for replay material.

This is also simply way to improve technical skills. This method supports technical as well as theoretical, reflective competences and skills amongst the participants, becouse the content of the LearningApps excerise is related to the main subject.
