Beauty and Joy of Computing (CS Principles) on edX

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

The Beauty and Joy of Computing (BJC) is an introductory computer science curriculum developed at UC Berkeley (and adapted at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte and NC State), intended for high school juniors through university non-majors. It was used in two of the five initial pilot programs for the AP CS Principles course being developed by the College Board and the National Science Foundation. Our overall goal is to support the CS10K project by preparing instructors to teach the AP CS Principles course through the BJC curriculum. In this workshop, we will share our experiences as instructors of the Beauty and Joy of Computing CS Principles course at the university and high school level, provide a glimpse into a typical week of the course with hands-on activities, and share details of the 2015-2016 edX SPOC course that teachers could use in their classroom.
