I used the TechnoCity PowerPoint project to introduce my 2nd graders to PowerPoint. The templates TechnoKids creates are fantastic. Several colleagues thought PowerPoint may be too difficult for 2nd grade. The step-by-step instructions and easy to use template made the project very easy to teach. And, the students had a great time with their slide shows. The extension activities are excellent. When these students return as 3rd graders, I'll be able to test their knowledge of PowerPoint and pick up right were we ended. TechnoKids' curriculum makes the Microsoft Suite of products very manageable for grade school.

The curriculum is great. The kids really enjoy it. I was told last year that I would be teaching computers to K-6. I am so glad I found your website! It has been a life saver. Since I purchase the curriculum out of my own pocket, I can only do it a piece at a time. Your monthly specials are really helpful on the pocketbook!
