Are you wondering what the Hour of Code 2021 is all about and how to engage your students? Well, wonder no more!
I know I'm a bit behind here, but I've finally read Hidden Figures. How inspiring to learn that about first "computers"--black women in the 1940s! I'm going to watch the movie this weekend.
I recently stumbled across this interesting Native Land Digital interactive map. There's a lot there to explore, and the map interface and API documentation that could be interesting for a CS class.
Whelp... the AP CSP exam results were posted today. (At least, for the first group of testers...). How did your students do? What will you do differently next year as a result? And/or what worked really well for you this year?
This week Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram went down… and this provides us with a great real world connection to what they’re learning in AP CSP!
I use Code.org's AP Computer Science Principles curriculum, and this week I'm teaching: Unit 1: Lesson 12: Digital Information Dilemmas Project.
The AP CSP exam changed this year and as a seasoned reader, I thought it might be helpful to share some reflections from my reading experience.
