Introducing AP Computer Science Principles
Launching in fall 2016, AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. In this webinar, participants will learn why and how this new course was developed, how it differs from and complements the existing AP Computer Science A course, and the ways it attracts and engages traditionally underrepresented students with essential computing tools and multidisciplinary opportunities. Participants will leave with an understanding of what it takes to bring AP Computer Science Principles to their schools, how to identify teachers for the course, and the support available for curriculum implementation, professional development, and student recruitment.
Gregg Fleisher, chief academic officer, National Math and Science Initiatives
This webinar will be moderated by Lien Diaz, senior director, AP Computer Science, The College Board
