Write a Review
I have had great success using your TechnoKids Curriculum. For 8 years, I have been teaching computer class to students who are hearing impaired. The program includes Microsoft, PowerPoint, Access and Excel skills, all of these things I have been looking for in building a solid foundation for students. The students are actually using the programs in their classroom for a project. A former student came for a visit and shared that he was happy that he knew the skills required in a unit involving Excel and mentioned that he was already “ahead” of his peers. Your curriculum has made a huge difference in our computer class and we are proud to use it in the classroom.
I started using the Senior Curriculum and so far I love it. I am excited to get all of the projects and start incorporating them into all of the computer classes at our school.
