I have been using your HTML5 for several years to teach students how to write code. It has been a staple of my 7th grade curriculum and I and the students love it.
I love this product. Because of the detailed instructions, all my students had great success at building a webpage. They were all engaged and tried every activity that was available. I was amazed at some of their pages.
The HTML project is clear and we are having fun working on the website. Thanks for a great product.
My favorite of all the TechnoKids projects! Students at all skill levels love the challenges of this project. They are so proud of themselves when they realize just what they have accomplished. Thanks!
Love your materials. The lesson structure of TechnoHTML has enabled me to teach HTML while I am learning it with my students.
I love these lessons. I purchased TechnoHTML last year. There are a few more I am hoping are the special of the month sometime soon! Thanks again!
Loved the program!
TechnoHTML5 has been working out well. Students are grasping the idea of how to make a webpage. I really like the step by step directions as well as the given assessments.
I just started using it this semester and am very pleased with it. I would like to purchase other projects in the future. You have a very good product.
