Every Techno Curriculum I've used has the most detailed instructions, user friendly instructions and well laid out (with images) examples possible. It's easy to see that teachers have created all of the curriculum.

I am looking forward to seeing what your company designs for Google Docs. My school just started using Google Apps this year, so I was excited to see this lesson opportunity!

The directions are very clear (like other Techno-products) which lets students be self-guided. TechnoQuestionnaire is really a great project to be able to give my students. They will move into high school well prepared.
