TO: Teachers and Schools Planning to Teach the AP CS Principles Course
The Mobile CS Principles project (Mobile CSP*) is accepting applications for its 2016-17 professional development (PD) course.
The PD consists of a 4-week summer course (starting June 27) that can be taken either online or in a hybrid format (2 weeks online and 2 weeks face-to-face), followed by PD support throughout the school year. Availability of the hybrid format will depend on whether there is a supported Mobile CSP site (TBD) in your vicinity.
Accepted teachers will receive a stipend of $4000 for successfully completing the PD plus a $1000 upon teaching the AP Mobile CSP course during the 2016-17 school year.
The Mobile CSP course takes a mobile approach to computer science. Students learn the principles of computer science through projects focused on building socially useful mobile apps using App Inventor — apps that have meaning to them or their school or community.
The Mobile CSP course is one of the CSP courses that will be endorsed by the College Board for 2016-17. Participating teachers will receive all of the pedagogical materials needed to teach the complete course.
To apply, please visit our PD page. Apply early — funds are limited. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the project or the PD.
