Beginning in June 2013, the HP Catalyst Academy will offer its first set of online mini-courses, covering a wide range of topics such as digital fabrication, computational thinking, remote labs, game design and social media.

For example, Fellow Debbie Forster and her team from Apps for Good will introduce educators to their approach to teaching young people about the world by expecting them to change it. Participants will learn how to work with students to develop mobile applications that solve real world problems by being matched online with professional designers, developers and entrepreneurs. Ultimately, HP Catalyst Academy learners will discover a new way of teaching IT, applying a student-driven, problem-solving learning approach and following lean start-up and agile software development principles.
