Write a Review
I love the TechnoKids Photoshop curriculum. I have been teaching Photoshop since CS2, (2002) and I have to relearn it every year because I only use it during the Spring semester. I have been teaching lessons that are similar to your curriculum but I have never had such a clearly defined program. Mostly I have relied on You-tube videos and my own creativity. My school has tried to send me to classes on Photoshop but every time I have enrolled, the classes have been canceled for lack of enrollment. Photoshop is not intuitive. I have books, notes, and an outline of objectives that I have relied on for years. Thank you for producing a product that is written in language that I understand.
I purchased TechnoPhotoshop a few years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed using it!
The experience has been a very good one. Instructions are step by step. The kids are enjoying using it.
I am SO thankful for your products. They are really helping me to provide enrichment activities for my students plus it brings variety to my lessons - new projects and fresh ideas! Love it! Please keep them coming!
