Petak Village is a village located in the Pacet District, Mojokerto Regency, East Java Province. Petak Village is one of the partner villages of the Muhammadiyah University Sidoarjo. The partner problem raised in this community partnership program is the lack of community technology literacy, especially the younger generation (grade school to middle school) related to mastery of technology. So far, this group has only been consumers in the technology sector. Both application consumers, content consumers, and so on. If this is allowed, it will make the generation addicted to the device. The solution offered to deal with problems that occur to partners is to conduct training activities with the topic of Technology Literacy for Upper Class Elementary School-aged students. The young generation in Desa Petak needs to be prepared to face a digital future. The digital skill given to partners here is the ability to create applications that can be run on Android Smartphones. Armed with these skills, the younger generation in Petak Village will not only become consumers, but will also have the potential to become producers of technological works in the future. Activities carried out using the concept of training and mentoring. The training was carried out at SDN 1 Petak with 40 students in the 5th grade. In the implementation of the training activities, participants were provided with determining the application concept, how to design the application, gameplay, to download and play the application made by themselves. Mentoring is carried out after the training activities are completed. Assistance was given to several students who were interested in knowing the process of making an application in more depth. The results obtained from the training and mentoring activities are the emergence of student interest in becoming creators in the digital era, both as YouTubers and programmers. In addition, there is an increase in the ability of students to make applications, from not knowing at all, now almost 80% understand and can make their own Android applications.
