Two weeks before the workshop, I began to recruit participants. Even though we don't offer credits in the training, but there are a lot of teachers applying for the training. A lot of participants are core teachers of Shenzhen, also include our discipline instructor and researcher of Shenzhen Education Bureau.
I have established an online course in advance. After recruiting, I let all participants encroll the course so they can begin to study immediately.
At the first day morning of training, a freshman of Shenzhen Institute of Information Technology showed to control a drone with mobile phone, the app was created with custom feature of App Inventor that developed by himself. Fantastic!
The next three days, I trained teachers on Computational Thinking, Setting Up App Inventor, How to open an App Inventor course in your own lab, Designer and Blocks Editor, Packaging and Sharing Apps,Lego and Arduino with App Inventor, aslo some interesting tutorials.
Teachers are making their own apps.
Everyone need to make a final project, they may collaborate with other teachers. At the last day afternoon, they presented their works : UI, Codes, Features, Improvement, Creative Ideas, all well done!
After training, they completed a survey about the workshop. The feedback is quite good. And they also gave me a lot of suggestions for improving the workshop. I'm so appreciate of that.
In the future, I would make a connection with Shenzhen Education Bureau and let more teachers to take part in further training.
