App Inventor Workshop for Teachers This Summer

Professional Development Workshop

University of San Francisco

High School and Middle School Teachers, we are offering a free professional development workshop this summer, led by Master Teacher Tom Clifford of Carmel High School along with Professors David Wolber ( and Alark Joshi of USF, who run USF’s Democratize Computing Lab (

The Workshop will focus on programming with App Inventor along with computer science fundamentals. App Inventor is a visual blocks language that is highly accessible to beginners and fun– you get to build apps for phones and tablets!  If you are interested in bringing coding and computer science into your classroom, App Inventor is a great way to learn and a great way to teach.

High School Teachers:
The in-person workshop, held June 26-June 30, will introduce the Mobile Computer Science Principles (CSP) curriculum. A 3-week online follow-up course, July 3-July 21 will be available and will include support from the instructors. Stipends are available if you complete the 4 weeks and get principal approval for teaching a Mobile CSP course in the 2017-18 academic year.  

Middle School Teachers: We will provide breakout sessions for middle-school specific lessons and discussions. Please see this link to see what some San Francisco middle schools have piloted this year: Click Here.

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog post on App Inventor. I’ve never been to one of the workshops before and I would be very interested in attending one in the near future. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make apps and this would be a great opportunity for me. Hot Water Heat Pump Perth
