What's Going On With AP CS: The CS 10,000 Teachers Project
Presented by Jan Cuny & Chris Stephenson
For the last year the AP Computer Science Commission and the AP CS Advisory Council have been working on a new Computer Science Principles course that is expected to debut as a new Advanced Placement course in 2015. This session provides information about the big ideas and supporting concepts in this new course, its intended place in the high school curriculum, and its importance to the goal of making computer science more engaging for students. We will also provide information on the 10,000 Teachers project, which is intended to get this course into 10,000 schools and to prepare the teachers we need to make this goal a reality.
