There are really quite many things to blame modern educational system for but the opportunity of getting technological skills is a great benefit. Students should realize that it doesn`t matter which career they will choose but there are skills that will always help them to make their living.  Sometimes it can be difficult to motivate children as they can get nearly any kind of paper online using such websites as My Admission Essay Writing  but we can show them examples of outstanding people who became successful because of technologies. It is a perfect motivation and we should use it

Yes the MIT appinventor is a good tool but I see a problem using some proprietary tools to educate children. What we need is tools with longevity and value for the long term. Also the tools should represent expertise in the field of interest, the best way to guarantee that is to get open tools from the experts.
