Beauty and Joy of Computing
July 9 @ 8:00 am - July 12 @ 3:30 pm
BJC, The Beauty and Joy of Computing, is an AP Computer Science Principles curriculum that emphasizes the joy and complexity of creating visual computer programs and apps, balanced with critical reflection on both the potential benefits and harms of new computing technologies. The Beauty and Joy of Computing adheres to the College Board’s new AP Computer Science Principles course requirements.
BJC has a strong design and programming focus, using the visual programming language Snap! and a collaborative, exploratory approach where students work in teams to bring their own unique creations to life.
This is a fantastic professional development option for new teachers as well as teachers who have been teaching AP Computer Science Principles (APCSP) and would like to learn to enhance their teaching practice by learning additional approaches to teaching APCSP.
Teachers will receive a $1500 stipend after the successful completion of the workshop. The stipend is intended to cover travel expenses, including mileage, food (except lunch which will be provided) and lodging, and a stipend to the teacher. It is expected that the teacher will have approximately $500 remaining as a stipend after paying travel expenses.
