I taught my first AP CS class on Thursday. I was wearing a Google teeshirt (it was a “nice” one, have to dress up for the first day of school) so the first thing the students asked me was, “Do you work for Google?” Then: “Can we visit Google?” And: “Will this help us get an internship there?”
I started out with a little “why learn programming/why programming is cool” spiel. I showed them Abundant Music and let them try out my Cardboard, both of which seemed to impress them. Next week, we’re going to discuss Net Neutrality!
