What customers say:
I am an elementary and middle school tech teacher. I have taught tech for 11 years. My district eliminated my class 3 years ago due to a lack of funds and felt it wasn’t necessary. My superintendent, after realizing he was greatly mistaken, 2 years later agreed to bring it back. Last year was my first year back in the computer lab and I was looking for much more. I discovered your textbooks and found them to be an awesome resource. You have taken the ideas and organized them into a way that makes it so much easier to implement. I can’t thank you enough. You have made my life easier by organizing the content and lessons into a workable plan that I can manage while serving 750 students per week.
Finding you and all that you have to support technology and its users have been a blessing.
These books and e-mails saved my life this first year teaching technology!
Thank you for all of the information you provide, I don’t think I could do my job without your books, wikis, and advice
