We have been using TechnoJourney in our homeschool group this year and we are loving it! We are all impressed with the user friendly format of TechnoJourney! We know how important it is to incorporate technology iinto the classroom, whether it's at home, a small group or a large co-op. I love that all of the resources are at your fingertips with options to have hard copy or go 100% digital. We opted to print out the passports and travel through the printed out workbook. My 3rd/4th graders enjoy the lessons and what they learn in each project-such as researching marine life when using web browsers and keywords. Thank you for developing such a quality, engaging, user-friendly project based curriculum that works for any group! We can't wait to dive into more projects and now we all take comfort in knowing that our kids have solid basis for digital citizenship as well as internet research and terminology!

The TechnoKids programs has been a great asset to my curriculum. It is used along with other resources to aide 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.

I have been using Techno Kids for 3 years throughout the entire school. The instructions are clear and well illustrated as well as covering all the computer applications important to a life long learner.

I was a substitute tutor for a class teaching TechnoJourney. The instructions are so clear and easy to use that I was able to jump right into teaching without having to review anything. The students are very enthusiastic about TechnoJourney and are disappointed when class time is up. They are learning a lot and they enjoy it. Thank you!

My students and I have enjoyed all of the projects I bought from you! They are wonderful.

TechnoKids was the best investment I could have ever made for my Computer Applications' Classes. These units provide instruction for all of the software programs that students need to be successful in junior high, high school, and beginning of college. The instructions are well-stated and the examples given are extremely helpful in carrying out the projects. The students can work ahead on their own or if out for an absence, they can easily follow directions on their own to proceed.
