The CSforMA Professional Learning Institutes feature intensive train-trainer courses in emerging technologies that track closely to our Digital Literacy and Computer Science standards and licensure requirements. 

The Mobile CSP curriculum is a project-based curriculum based on the theme of mobile computing that engages students in building socially useful Android and iOS mobile apps in MIT’s App Inventor (a blocks-based programming language). Students complete two collaborative programming projects and an individual research and writing project on the impact of a recent, computing innovation that appeals to the student.

Cost: The cost to cover the workshop is $1750 per educator, thanks to significant contributions from business partners, CSforMA is able to offer scholarships for eduators in MA public schools.
