Resources for Teaching the Mobile CSP Course
Teach Them Where They Live
Mobile CSP is a project-based curriculum. Student projects focus on building socially useful, place-based mobile apps. In this way, student learning is associated closely with their interests and grounded in their schools, their homes, and their communities.
Navigating the Curriculum
The curriculum is currently hosted in two separate branches each of which are explained below. While the Student Branch and Teacher Branch look similar, you can tell the difference between them by looking at the navigation bar -- the Teaching Branch has a green bar while the Student Branch has a blue bar.
Teacher Branch - Green
The Teaching Mobile CSP branch is specific to instructors and provides supplemental and supporting materials for teachers to utilize including lesson plans, discussion prompts for the professional development meetings, and sections on pedagogy for teaching computer science. In the companion Student Branch mentioned above, the actual Mobile CSP content is presented. Access the Teacher Branch here.
Student Branch - Blue The Student Mobile CSP branch contains all the student-facing materials. Teachers will need to have students register for the Student Branch of the course and use it directly during the academic year. Teachers will complete lessons during the summer PD that will be available through this branch. Access the Student Branch here.
