Launching AP Computer Science Principles with Code.org (part one)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Bring AP Computer Science Principles to your school and offer students a Math or Science credit with an accessible AP course. Using Code.org’s open source (FREE!!!) curriculum provides teachers support with daily lesson plans, activities, activity guides, assessments, rubrics, and a constantly moderated forum that welcomes and encourages teachers to share questions and ideas. Participate in a live demonstration of the curriculum to get a feel for how you will use the resources in your class. Information will be provided about a five day summer workshop with quarterly follow ups throughout the year that supports teachers as they implement the curriculum.

During part 1 we will model unit 1 lesson 9 in which students play battleship to build an understanding of the need for addressing in the internet.  

In part 2 we will give an AP CSP "crash course", an overview of Code.org's cyber security activities on encryption, and a demo of App Lab.  Participants will get to customize an app!

The two sessions can be attended individually, part 1 is not needed to participate during part 2.  

Please bring a device to each session if possible.
