CS10K: TeachIT - Scaling Mobile CSP Professional Development Online

NSF Awards: 1440947, 1240841

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12, Undergraduate, Adult learners

Mobile CSP is a Computer Science Principles curriculum and professional development based on the theme of mobile computing. It can be offered in a non-AP, AP, or Concurrent Enrollment format. The course:

  • Engages students in building socially useful mobile apps in App Inventor;
  • Uses project-based programming and computer science lessons;
  • Emphasizes writing & communication skills;
  • Fosters collaboration & creativity in the classroom.

Since 2013 the Mobile CSP project has provided professional development to more than 600 teachers throughout the U.S. and reached more than 10,000 students. We are often asked: how do we address the need to broaden participating in computing? While we address student recruitment during the professional development, it is often hard to explain how to recruit students to computing courses. This video shows four strategies that have emerged over the years and have been effective - from both the teacher and student's point of view.
