BELL afterschool programs: teaching programming to close the achievement gap

BELL is a non-profit that runs after-school programs to expand the learning time and help close the achievement gap. This summer, they're piloting a program to teach programming in their summer programs, using our Khan Academy Intro to JS course and our teaching tools.

The Marin Independent Journal just published an article about the success of the program so far. Once the pilot is done, we hope to have a case study in our teaching guide, to help others who want to run similar programs. It's great to see more teachers and programs embracing self-paced learning and encouraging more students to learn about technology!
