In this course, students learned how to access the world of mobile services and applications as creators, not just consumers. They will learn to create entertaining and socially useful apps that can be shared with friends and family. In addition to learning to program and how to become better problem solvers, students will also explore the exciting world of computer science from the perspective of mobile computing and its increasingly important effect on society.
This course is similar to and borrows from Dave Wolber’s course. Lectures and homework assignments are mapped to the App Inventor book. Students maintain portfolios of their work. In addition, it is one of several CS Principles pilot courses and maps the course materials to the CS Principles curriculum.
