We are pleased to announce the MassCUE and M.A.S.S. 2016 Annual Technology Conference, co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Computer Using Educators (MassCUE) and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S.). Both organizations recognize the benefits of a collaborative partnership that focuses on the collective interests of our school districts.  We will be providing educators from across the Commonwealth and New England with exciting ways to enhance teaching and learning with technology.

AP Computer Science Project-Based Learning Project

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation will demonstrate how a real world application can be used as a 3-4 week project-based assignment in the A.P. Computer Science curriculum. Students are given a series of assignments to code a mini student information system database. Through completing this project students learn many of the important parts of the Java language and the basic concepts of object-oriented programming languages. Handouts describing the project and how the basic concepts of computer science, such as information hiding and abstract data types, are handled within the project. Participants will also be given all assignments and completed project code. Upon completion participants will have a complete project-based assignment package that can be used to enrich student understanding of the required concepts in AP Computer Science.
