This Teacher Guide provides tools to deepen engagement with aspiring app developers, whether you have experience teaching with Swift or other programming languages.
As a College Board Endorsed Provider, Apple’s Develop in Swift AP® CS Principles course helps students learn key computing concepts, building a solid foundation in programming with Swift while preparing for the AP® Computer Science Principles exam. Lessons take students through the app design process: brainstorming, planning, prototyping, and evaluating an app of their own. They’ll learn about the impact of computing and apps on society, economies, and culture while exploring iOS app development.
Connected World units provide students an engaging way to explore advanced technology concepts and the impact of computing on their lives. An illustrated, fictional story follows a group of students in a film club and their use of technology to arrange a viewing party, order food, and post to social media. Interactive illustrations provide insight into the technology behind their activities—including topics such as how computers digitize images and how online activity can be stored and tracked.
