Computer Science Principles Curricula

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

Several recent sessions at CSTA and elsewhere have provided details about the development, piloting, and exam format of the NSF/College Board Computer Science Principles (CSP) project. Other presentations have highlighted individual projects and implementations of the CSP course. These courses differ in many respects – from choice of programming language, to the degree of emphasis on the Internet, and more. As schools move to adopt the CSP framework, develop courses, and deliver them, teachers and administrators look to national models for curricula that can be adopted and adapted to suit local needs. In this session, we highlight six NSF- and private/non-profit-funded projects that have developed, piloted, and made available CSP curricula. The single- session, active format facilitates direct comparisons of the approaches.
