Welcome! This is the website for the CSTA 2014 workshop Mobile Computer Science Principles sponsored by the Mobile CSP Project.
Mobile Computer Science Principles: Teaching Computing Through Mobile Technology
Please join us at CSTA 2014 in St. Charles on Monday, July 14, from 1:00 - 4:00 PM in room Broadway C.
This hands-on workshop is for middle and high school teachers who are interested in teaching an introductory mobile computing course based on the CS Principles framework. The workshop will provide a overview of the online Mobile CSP course and a preview of the Mobile CSP Project's online professional development course for teachers.
During the workshop participants will develop simple Android apps and be introduced to lessons, homework exercises, project assignments, and assessment materials (quizzes, grading rubrics) that can be used in an App Inventor-based, introductory-CS course.
This workshop is suitable for those who are new to App Inventor, as well as those who would like to teach to the CS Principles standards with App Inventor.
Android phones will be provided on loan for the duration of the workshop. You need to bring your own laptop and we ask you to please install App Inventor ahead of time. If you have an Android phone or tablet, you can bring that too. Please follow these directions: before arriving at the workshop.
We look forward to seeing you there!
