I am so excited to have purchased this. After only one week of owning it, I have already used a number of ideas. I need to start saving so I can purchases the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade as well. –TeacherPayTeachers Customer

Love this! Have bought all of the other grades as well, such a great resource!–Teachers Pay Teachers Customer
I stumbled upon the Structured Learning Curriculum books over the summer. I was starting a new job in technology education teaching 6th-8th grade, so these books were a life saver. I used the 6th Grade Technology book to begin building my curriculum and only had to make slight modifications for my own classroom. I am eager to see what else will come from Structured Learning!–Amazon customer
Although a veteran teacher, I just began teaching computer tech. last year. This series gave me a template in guiding me toward what students should know and at what appropriate age they should know it. I have successfully used many of the lessons, tweaked some of them to fit my particular needs, and also used them to reassess some of the lessons I had been provided or created myself. It has been an invaluable tool and provided greater confidence in knowing that I am on the right track in what I am doing! In my particular situation, students come to me from a different teacher or different school the previous year, so there is not necessarily a smooth flow in skills, however this series has helped me to teach the students (and a few adults along the way) many of the basics and has helped them become more independent in their use of technology.  –Amazon customer
I have 3 children who all use the technology binders and they are so useful. You know what each lesson is and what they are learning. You also have the homework in there so everything you need is in one binder (which prevents lost sheets of paper). Definitely recommend this product.  –Amazon customer
I had been moved out of the regular classroom and into teaching k-6 computers with no guidelines or curriculum to follow. I had built a rough plan on what to cover but knew I had holes and wasn’t always consistent across the grades. I came across this series and thought I would start in the middle to see if I could build up and down from it. Once I had the book and started using it, I knew I needed the whole series. Why reinvent when the perfect answer as ready for me. I accomplished far more with my younger grades than I had thought I could. The lessons are ease to use, or adapt to my needs. I like the vocabulary included so I am stressing the same words across all grades. –Amazon Customer

This is an excellent resource to have in your technology classroom. There is a scope and sequence available to follow from kindergarten through 6th grade. The lessons are easy to incorporate and the material is based on the ISTE standards. Very relevant and up-to-date. Your classroom professional library would not be complete without it. –Amazon customer
