Launching A Mobile App Dev Program in High Schools

This workshop has been selected for SXSWedu 2015. Participants will gain insight into how two Chicago-area school districts and Mobile Makers Academy partnered to implement mobile app development courses in their high schools. Through a short exercise and presentations, participants will see elements of the teacher training, learning materials, and instructional design used to prepare computer science teachers for the new curriculum. Participants will walk away understanding the steps taken to implement the program in the presenting high schools, and resources to bring this program to their schools.

Here's a video made by students from Barrington High School in Illinois about this innovative new program.
