Free Online Coding and Photography courses
Jul 7, 2014
Pursuitery.com is hosting two free online classes — “Coding with Scratch” and “Phonar Nation.”
Through these courses, young people can connect with mentors, share projects with new friends, earn digital badges and win cool prizes.
Offered by the Connected Learning Alliance, a network that brings together organizations, projects, initiatives and individuals working to leverage today’s technology for more equitable access to learning and opportunity for all young people. Pursuitery is part of CLA.
Scratch is a popular way for young people to learn to code, and millions of people worldwide have been making and sharing creative projects online in more than 50 languages. This summer’s Coding with Scratch class will teach students how to program their own interactive stories, games and animation.
Designed by award-winning photographer Jonathan Worth, Phonar Nation teaches kids how to tell stories through photographs. Worth and other professional photographers and photojournalists will teach the course and offer real-time mentoring sessions.
Digital credentials, or badges, will be awarded to participants who choose to earn them. And, weekly prizes are being awarded.
