Creating a HS App Programming Computer Elective

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will describe the structure, available resources, and pedagogy for creating a High School computer science elective that teaches students how to build Apps for Apple's iOS. It is based on a course that was successfully pioneered in 2011-2012, and continues today. The presenter is the course's current instructor, who does not have a degree in computer science, and who will demonstrate that a degree in computer science is not necessary for a successful offering of this course. Some topics to be covered include but are not limited to the following:
-Apple's SDK and Xcode;
-Dealing with the Apple Developer issue with the HS age group;
-Getting to the documentation with Dash;
-Using Stack Overflow;
-Using iTunesU in conjunction with iBooks materials;
-Introducing a business model to student development teams;
-Vetting the professional literature, from sources such as Big Nerd Ranch, and O'Reilly Media.
