FREE MobileCSP Professional Development through WeTeach_CS Collaborative

April 9 @ 9:00 am - June 13 @ 7:00 am

AP Computer Science Professional Development:


The Mobile CSP PD (program will be offered in a blended learning environment that will prepare teachers to teach the College-Board endorsed Mobile CSP Advanced Placement course. An online professional development course will begin April 9th and continue through June 8th and culminate in an in-person two-day capstone on June 11th and 12th.  This 90 hour CTE program is designed to be accessible to teachers new to computer science (CS) as well as experienced CS teachers. Prior to attending PD, teachers will also attend the WeTeach_CS Summit with a scholarship paid for under the grant.


The first 10 applicants will be able to participate.  There will then be a waitlist.  


Mobile Computer Science Principles Project, a National Science Foundation funded curriculum,  provides a broad and rigorous introduction to computer science based on MIT App Inventor, a mobile programming language for Android devices. The course is based on the College Board’s Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles curriculum framework for introductory computer science. This 100-hour PD is equivalent to taking a college-level CS Principles course and is recommended for teachers with no prior education or teaching experience in computer science.
