Teaching App Inventor to Kids

At work, its been really busy. With the start of a new year, we decided to teach mobile application development to kids ages 7 and above.

That decision led to me doing the edx App Inventor course last year. This year, I have developed a learning curriculum to teach the kids mobile computing. The lesson plans have been completed and our portfolio site is up. Some material from Mobile CSP was used in creating the curriculum so I dare say that I have done my homework.

I wish I could say I wasn’t nervous about tomorrow but it would be a lie. My experience in teaching kids has made me acknowledge the fact that kids have a way of throwing out the plan. So whilst I am confident of the content that I have spent time developing, somewhere at the back of my head is the knowledge that I might have to adapt my curriculum to the needs of the class.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
