Write a Review
The TechnoKids programs has been a great asset to my curriculum. It is used along with other resources to aid the students in mastering their Microsoft Office skills in preparations for the Microsoft certification exams in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. The content is relative, yet rigorous enough to maintain student interest even at the 11th and 12th grade level.
Excellent, engaging worksheets that students love and teachers love more! Project-based learning with lessons that are well conceived and have a logical flow. Maybe tone of worksheets is more appropriate for middle school students - older students may find language a little young. Support team is reliable and friendly.
I love how easy it is to navigate the materials. The teacher guides and student workbooks are laid out in a way that even the most novice computer teacher or student can follow along and create the projects. I also love all the optional activities added along the way for students that are more advanced or those who want to give themselves a challenge.
The curriculum is great! Everything is readily available.
Thank you for such a wonderful product. I love the curriculum that TechnoKids provides to teachers. Every chance I get I tell other computer teachers of your work. The projects through TechnoKids are legendary in my school and students come in asking about them on the first day of class (and I teach high school). I noticed that when I am using TechnoKids curriculum, I have less attendance, discipline, and attention problems with my students. Thank you for such a wonderful product at a price teachers can afford.
