Mobile Computer Science Principles: Teaching Computing Through Mobile Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The College Board’s CS Principles (CSP) Project is an effort to develop a language-neutral, breadth-first advanced placement (AP) course in Computer Science. Mobile CSP is an NSF-funded effort to train high school teachers to teach a CSP course that engages students in building mobile apps with App Inventor. The workshop will provide an overview of Mobile CSP training including a hands-on workshop with App Inventor and a representative sample of CSP-based lesson plans, assessment materials, and other resources. Mobile CSP training will be available for free to all teachers in summer 2015 through an online course, which will begin in June 2015. Information about the summer 2015 training will be available on our website. Target audience: Primarily high school teachers, but middle school teachers will also benefit from this workshop. *Laptop required.
