Creating mobile Apps? My thoughts on two helpful environments

I wanted to spend some time over the holidays (It is summer down under) learning to develop Apps. My purpose is to start an App development club at my school, so I needed to find a set of tools with the following features:
  1. Low cost;
  2. A visual environment for the user interface;
  3. An easy(ish) programming language to add functionality;
  4. A clear learning path to take my students and me from beginner to advanced developer; and
  5. A helpful community who are ready to point me in the right direction when I get stuck.
