Technology has been in the classroom for years, from computers to smartphones, tablets, apps and more. These devices and programs have changed the way students learn and the way we teach. By embracing these technologies, learning to code as a teacher and passing these lessons on to our students, we can optimize the use of technology in the classroom and maximize the learning potential for our students.
App Development with Swift for Educators Course Details
Oregon State University's App Development with Swift for Educators is designed for teachers and will help you bring Apple Swift coding into your classroom. This two-part training will give you the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to implement coding directly into your current curriculum. Led by College of Engineering instructors, you will navigate online course materials and benefit from in-person instruction.
Code is the language of technology, and learning to code will help you solve problems, build apps and work in creative ways that bring your ideas to life. This training will give you the hands-on training with Apple's coding language Swift through two distinct courses.
Introduction to App Development with Swift
Even if you have no programming experience, this expert-led course will teach you the basics of Swift and Xcode. You'll cover the same curriculum that you can later teach your students on how to be an app developer as you choose between two basic iOS apps to build.
After building a base knowledge and familiarity with the coding language Swift, you will move on to building mini projects and testing your code in playgrounds. At the end, you will build a fully functional app of your own design.
Open Lab Session
After completing the three-day workshop and navigating online materials at your own pace, there will be an open lab where you can visit an expert, ask questions and get help with issues you encounter. You will also have continued online support after the open lab session to help you integrate these lessons into your curriculum.
Oregon State Instructors Make a Difference
This course is led by Oregon State University employees in the Center for Applied Systems and Software in the College of Engineering. You will learn directly from experts in the field doing this kind of work on a daily basis. Additionally, you will have their ongoing support after the workshop to ensure your continued success.
