MIT is creating a Center for Mobile Learning (Hal Abelson is involved), and it will maintain and develop App Inventor. More information at the Google blog.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab has announced the creation of the New Center for Mobile Learning, with start-up support from Google. The research center, to be led by three professors at MIT, is focused on building innovative mobile technologies in education, such as interactive games for children that use GPS. The first project involves creating new features and versions of Google’s App Inventor for Android, which allows programmers to easily build applications for the company’s smartphone operating system.
