I am a middle school science teacher and have also taught Computer Classes. This year, I am teaching Computer Science for the first time. I could not be doing this class without the help and direction by Learningtech.org. I appreciate the expertise and direction provided by Dr. Miller and his team. The students enjoy their lessons. And the students are producing projects that meet standards set by CSTA, and Common Core in math and language arts. Students are also producing projects that cross the silos into science curriculum. Furthermore, the support provided to me includes that I will be self-directed and leading the Computer Science classes in the near future. This is awesome!

The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology (LearningTech.org) has provided several engaging 2-week Robotics & Engineering workshops for our 9th and 10th grade students. Their workshops are organized in such a way that novice students can engage in the class and successfully complete programing and engineering challenges. The class curriculum was also flexible enough for advanced students to pursue more difficult challenges. Our students reported appreciation for the instructors deep knowledge of computer science and their ability to provide timely advice and support while working to solve programming and engineering challenges.

We have worked with the Miller Institute for many years as consultants on our e-rate applications each year. They have helped us save thousands of dollars in telecommunications, etc. which we have been able to redirect into the classrooms. We would not have been able to manage the e-rate process without them.

Everyone at the Miller Institute is a pleasure to work with - patient, tenacious, and detail oriented. Thanks for the help!

The Miller Institute has been tremendously helpful to us over the past several years as we have applied for e-rate funding. Given the unique nature of our school, the process has been daunting and the folks at the Miller Institute have been diligent, good-natured and extremely patient! Thanks Mark & Eileen!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

they are the consultants we hire to help us jump through the myriad complexities of applying for e-rate funding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know the intricacies of the Miller Institute well enough to provide this type of input

Our organization has partnered with the Miller Institute for Learning with Technology (aka Learning Tech) for over a year to offer technology camps to elementary and middle school students during school breaks and summer.

Learning Tech staff are knowledgable and easy to work with. They are well-prepared for each day of class and able to work with kids at whatever level they are currently in their technology know-how. Students experience "success" at the end of camp and can demonstrate their knowledge with their notes and actual demos. The staff are friendly and able to explain technology in such a way that students without prior knowledge to coding or robotics can get started and demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge at the end of each day.

My son attended a summer STEAM camp with this organization. He had a great experience learning how to build Minecraft mods. I'd definitely recommend it.

Learning Tech has been a great resource for STEM education! My boys have attended the summer camps for the past 2 years. They have participated and learned Scratch programming, Java, building Canary Mode applications (in Minecraft) and programmed in Robotics.
Learning Tech has gone above and beyond with help outside of the classroom. They have answer coding questions and helped with troubleshooting!
Highly recommend this company.
