Transform your Students into Microsoft Office Experts

ONE TECHNOLOGY PROJECT DOES IT ALL!

You asked. We listened!

TechnoWonderland IconTeachers have been asking for a technology project that uses EVERY Microsoft Office application. It was a challenge…but we did it! You are going to love TechnoWonderland. It is perfect for middle school or high school students. If you teach Grades 7-10 this project is for YOU.

In TechnoWonderland, students become marketing executives for an amusement park. They use Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Access and the Internet to create publications, design promotions, and analyze, graph, and calculate data. In just one technology project, your students will learn a range of technology skills including word processing, spreadsheets, graphics, Internet, desktop publishing, presentation, and database skills.

Pick and Choose the Activities you Want to Teach

TechnoWonderland was designed by its creators at TechnoKids Inc. to fit into a wide range of teaching and timetable situations:

Computer Class: If your students come to class one a week, you can teach TechnoWonderland throughout the school year and feel confident that you are targeting every technology skill. In addition to the assignments, the review questions, skill reviews, and extension activities are a great way to challenge your students and enhance their skillset.

Amusement ParkComputer Rotation: You may not have a regularly scheduled computer class. Instead, your students may rotate to computers for a block of time. TechnoWonderland is perfect for teaching a wide-range of technology skills in a condensed amount of time.
Amusement Park
