Welcome to my corner of the world of digital learning!

I offer coding, computer skills and related courses for kids from 7 to 14 years and for adults, as well as advice on making most of your online presence for non-profits and local enterprises, including one-on-one coaching. My name is Sabine McKenna. I am a digital educator and online coach, who started cccSkerries in the summer of 2013.

Sabine McKenna explaining

In the courses for children, I aim for a balance between creativity and programming. Also, while coding is a large part of what I offer, there are also other classes like Keyboard Skills and Computer Wizards, where we create images, presentations, and other projects using a variety of online and offline tools.

Current Classes for Children
