Project principals Akira Kamiya and Molly Laden delivered a presentation Integrating Project-Based Computing at the MassCUE conference at Gillette Stadium (Foxboro, MA) on October 19, 2016.
The session traced the project’s trajectory from professional development to implementation as CS Pathways enters its third year.
About a dozen teachers attended, all of whom were planning computer science instruction using MIT App Inventor.
The team presented the curriculum developed by CS Pathways teachers and gave an introduction to App Inventor programming. Teachers interacted with apps developed by project students, including the Cheese Around the World app, the Motivational App, and the Everett Landmarks app.
Materials from the presentation, including the slide show and sample curricula for 6th and 8th grades, may be downloaded from bit.ly/cspathways-masscue2016.
