Get in your Hour of Code at Khan Academy!

khan academy logoThe Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) continues to encourage everyone to not only increase digital literacy by learning to use applications, services and devices, but to consider becoming content creators by learning to code. Through participation in the worldwide Hour of Code, many U.S. Virgin Islanders are doing just that!

One of the more innovative collections of coding instruction may be found online at KhanAcademy.org.

With the mantra “Changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere,” Khan Academy is available on the internet any time at no charge.  The non-profit Khan Academy offers free math, science, finance, history, and computer programming and science online to students of all ages, along with guidance for instructors, coaches, and parents.

Users may set up personal accounts via social media or email, and the curriculum may be accessed via the web, either on a computer or a variety of  hardware, including Chromebooks, Netbooks, iPads and tablets. If your device can run an internet browser (such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, or Opera), you can enroll in Khan Academy!

If you don’t have a computer, you may access Khan Academy training at any of dozens of free Public Computer Centers (PCCs) in the United States Virgin Islands.  Below are some links to get you started learning more about computer science and coding at Khan Academy!
