Reviews (of SL tech ed books/ebooks)
 
Although I am a veteran classroom teacher, beginning my first year of teaching technology was stressful because I did not have a clear picture in my head of where to begin. I purchased the entire curriculum of Structured Learning Technology Education Series (K-5) to help me get started. I like that the curriculum has a specific scope and sequence to build skills as we progress, and I love the many resources and ideas from author Jacqui Murray on her website, blog and weekly email tips to support the curriculum. By using the advice and resources of an experienced technology educator, I have stepped into a new position with a clear vision of what to teach, how to teach it, and when to teach it!--Amazon customer

I was ENORMOUSLY impressed with the quality of this textbook (and the entire series). I purchased the 7th grade version and implemented it in my 7th grade classrooms (as well as all the supplementary materials that the kids need) so I was curious to see how the 4th grade classrooms were doing with the Structured Learning curriculum. No surprise– it has proven to be an superb success for them too. The kids love it, it is so well-organized that the teachers could implement it easily, it directly relates to the contemporary trends in the age group, it’s fast-paced so no one gets bored… basically everything you could want! As an aside on behalf of the series, the curriculum is sequential so I especially loved seeing the 4th graders were getting a start on the skills they would need to demonstrate with greater proficiency once they got to my class. I can’t say enough for this material and how much the kids love it. Give it a shot in your classrooms! You’ll see the difference in your students’ learning!–Amazon Customer

Amazing book, I used this to help my child become more familiar with the computer world. The projects and lessons here were easy to understand and easy to expand on if you should desire it. My kid loved it and learned an extraordinary amount…I just wish there were books like this out when I was a kid. I wasn’t sure how to go about educating my child on computers, the most important piece of technology to be familiar with in the world, but this book has made it easy. My thanks to the author for their amazing book and the others like it. Will definitely buy them as my child grows. Amazing book, I highly recommend it to any parent or teacher out there whose children/students could benefit from this outstanding educational tool.

Last year my job expanded to include teaching technology to grades 4, 5. &. 6 and I was in a panic with what to do. After much searching, I found these books. I bought one of the paperback versions for each of the grade levels. They were an invaluable resource. The authors are up to date with all of the latest technology. If you prefer PDF versions to download yourself, they have that also. I prefer the book version! The books have been such a help to me in the past years and I look forward to expanding my library to include all of the books. –Amazon Customer
