In TechnoInternet, students have fun exploring the Internet. This online expedition allows them to safely discover the wonders online as well as learn the importance of responsible digital citizenship. The assignments revolve around an imaginary world. Each destination is tracked by adding a marker to an Internet map. This introduction to the Internet is ideal for elementary students.
CULTIVATE A COMMUNITY OF CRITICAL THINKERS: Promote responsible digital citizenship skills. Lesson plans introduce the internet to junior grades. Students master search strategies, collect bookmarks, assess the trustworthiness of websites, save images, learn to respect copyright, examine cyberbullying, follow safe practises, and more! Make your students informed evaluators of online information. Encourage a culture of inquiry in your classroom.
MUST-HAVE RESOURCES TEACHERS CAN USE TOMORROW: Amplify teaching and save valuable time with high quality, user-friendly instructional resources. Included in the project is a Teacher Guide with lesson plans, skill summaries, and assessment tools. The Student Workbook can be printed or used digitally in paperless classrooms. Students complete activities, answer questions, and reflect on their learning. When finished, they earn an Internet Citizenship card.
KIDS BECOME INTERNET AWESOME: Rich, engaging activities tour students through a comprehensive online journey. Using the provided large-scale map, students use markers to track their progress. They visit video sites, survey maps, explore sound and music, observe webcams, and learn about email and social media. Build skills and strategies that can be applied throughout the curriculum.
STEM CONNECTION: Tap into powerful resources to develop essential 21st century skills. Build a foundation for subsequent learning and best practices. Prepare your students to be ‘future-proof’. Give them the basis for the skills they will need for the careers of tomorrow.

We have been using this project in our homeschool group this year and we are loving it! We are all impressed with the user friendly format! We know how important it is to incorporate technology into the classroom, whether it's at home, a small group or a large co-op. I love that all of the resources are at your fingertips with options to have hard copy or go 100% digital. We opted to print out the passports and travel through the printed out workbook. My 3rd/4th graders enjoy the lessons and what they learn in each project - such as researching marine life when using web browsers and keywords. Thank you for developing such a quality, engaging, user-friendly project based curriculum that works for any group! We can't wait to dive into more projects and now we all take comfort in knowing that our kids have solid basis for digital citizenship as well as internet research and terminology!
I have been using TechnoKids for 3 years throughout the entire school. The instructions are clear and well illustrated as well as covering all the computer applications important to a life long learner.
I was a substitute tutor for a class. The instructions are so clear and easy to use that I was able to jump right into teaching without having to review anything. The students are very enthusiastic and are disappointed when class time is up. They are learning a lot and they enjoy it. Thank you!
I've used many of your products and they've been a great addition to our curriculum.
My students and I have enjoyed all of the projects I bought from you! They are wonderful.
