“It was a lot of fun to learn about coding in Swift. I look at my iPhone differently now because I understand how some of the apps work on it.”

Student – Education Interest

Comprehensive, flexible, professional development

We train teachers of any discipline to teach mobile coding courses at their schools.

Training:

  • Phase 0:  Guided and virtual prep work
  • Phase 1:  One week summer immersive bootcamp
  • Phase 2:  Three Saturday workshops during the year

Outcomes:

Teachers learn the iOS Swift programming language, the curriculum for a year-long course(s), best practices in Computer Science, pedagogy for successful iOS development courses, and are provided tool kits for bringing *real* to the classroom.

“…Hands-on learning was great. Actually doing the challenges like I was a student, not a teacher.”

Amy Campbell, Teacher

“Love that you teach the teachers with the same format that we’ll be using with our students — so helpful, especially as a 1st year teacher!”

Peggy Hunt, Teacher

“Thanks for a great learning experience and for being an example of how I want to be in my classroom.”

Derrick Tiveron, Teacher

Collaboration with mentors, peers and real-world  iOS developers

360 Degree Support:

Our Professional Learning Community augments teacher growth and continual development which is a *must* in this ever-changing field.  Unique and core to this Program is the bringing together of expert educators and the developer community to ensure methods and content are both relevant to the marketplace, and motivating to students.

Includes:

  • Meetups to review Swift product updates, monthly newsletters, and one-on-one coaching.
  • A direct line of communication via message platform, Slack, with the MME iOS developer community and peers to troubleshoot and collaborate.
  • Invitation to National Summit — annual meet up of teachers and iOS community to share and learn.
  • Teacher Recognition Program where teachers are propped up and rewarded along the way for growth and ambition.

“I know where to find your master teachers if I need them. I keep in contact with Jason and Cathy from class, and am on Slack with Wade — he’s awesome by the way!”

After implementing our program:

“App development has opened new opportunities for my students and myself. The problem solving skills they gained isn’t like anything I have witnessed in my ten years of teaching. No matter what their career path, the skills gained will benefit them in the future.”
