- App Inventor Computational Thinking Curriculum
The curriculum is a refactoring of the Coolthink Middle School Curriculum, a 3 year computational thinking curriculum currently being piloted in Hong Kong, in collaboration with the Education University of Hong Kong, and funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. This curriculum is intended to be delivered in a single year, and can be modified to work as a 6 week unit, 12 week unit, or a semester long course. The curriculum is based on teaching students to think computationally: to decompose problems, abstract and modularize, reuse and remix existing solutions, and to test fully to arrive at a working solution. Students will use MIT App Inventor, a blocks-based programming language with a development environment that runs in a browser, to design and build mobile apps. Students build their digital confidence and become empowered to create, rather than just use technology in their lives.

The simple tool helps learners to understand the RGB color system and gives creatives the ability to generate all of the 16,777,216 possible colors. Using the slider component, MakeColors expands the color palette in the MIT App Inventor beyond the built-in […]
