5.0

I just used Techno Trivia for the first time with my 8th Elective Wheel elective class and I love it! It was easy to use, and I appreciated the extension activities for my students who work at a faster pace. I even used the flashcards for our bulletin board! This is the first time I have ever purchased curriculum (as I prefer to create my own) but because I am teaching 4 separate classes, I really needed some help. I also enjoy the option of being able to provide the kids with a digital copy on our Google classroom. Many thanks for this great product. I can't wait to try the next one on my list: Techno Presenter.

This curriculum is great for teaching the concepts while making the lessons fun. Students really enjoy learning new technology and are excited about it. The workbooks are very helpful for keeping the students on task. I would recommend TechnoKids to anyone.
