I am currently volunteering as a videographer for Mark and his team as they start the year's robotics classes and apply for grants...every second so far has been a delight, and their passion comes through beautifully on camera. I can't wait to work more with them and assemble the footage I have into a mini-feature showcasing their work.

I've known the folks at the Miller Institute for many years, as colleague and client. The offer a broad range of services including infrastructure consultation, installation, and administration. What is especially cool about them are their hands on tech oriented camps, including camps targeting the under-served. The Miller Institute has a deep knowledge of technology, excellent communication skills with both technical and non technical folks, and a "do it right" ethic.

I was a volunteer system/network administrator for my kids school. The Miller Institute was contracted by the local school district for tech infrastructure support. Which resulted in our frequent collaboration. The Miller Institute helped us install network infrastructure (including racks, routers, switches, servers, power, air conditioning, cable, fiber, and on and on), move server rooms, move our MPOE, configure our servers, and debug and fix failed wiring, and help set up and educate the staff on the school administration software. In short, they were indispensable.

Mark Miller and his organization spent two months teaching my child an array of technology. His organization was brought in to teach a tech class at my son's charter high school located in Redwood City. It was a resounding success. He taught hands-on technology that made it all real for the kids. The program was not about the bells and whistles to impress the parents but the nuts and bolts of what makes technology exciting. The kids could not help but to become engaged because of Marks incredible enthusiasm, dedication to the Miller Institute and his own life long love of the subject. He is quite an inspiration and obviously a mentor ro many successful people the field. BRAVO Miller Institute of Learning!

The founder of The Miller Institute for Learning was a founding parent at our school, the San Carlos Learning Center. From the beginning, Dr. Miller had a profound influence on the use of technology by our educators, learners, and parents. He is the rare "techie" that understands learning theory, educational organizations, and how to use technology as a tool to improve and enhance learning. The Miller Institute has continued to help our school grow and change with the times. They supported us as one of seven school in the San Carlos School District. They did an excellent job understanding our individual needs and different culture, and worked with us to individually to accommodate these needs. They held our hand when we needed it, and kept at a distance when we didn't.

My biggest rave is that the education of children is at the heart of the Miller Institute for Learning. Using technology to engage learners is their passion. They do this through workshops and by encouraging the learners to play an active role in maintaining and troubleshooting the technology they use. We are fortunate to have organizations like this that are fostering our future innovators.

several capacities. The founders of the Miller Institute of Learning were key in building the technological infrastructure of our school, the San Carlos Charter Learning Center. Dr. Miller is also a tremendous resource in helping educators understand how to effectively use technology as a tool to enhance and improve learning. The Miller Institute has also provided our school with valuable support in completing e-rate applications.

The Miller Institute has served school districts and charter schools for the past 20 years. From their initial volunteer support for the first Net Day in the San Carlos School District to the testimonials I've heard from charter school operators who received their first introduction to instructional tecnology and the infrastructure and learning plans that Mark Miller facilitated.
The Miller Institute has pioneered ed tech support and innovation from initial hardware infrastructure to youth computer clubs to high quality professional development for teachers and school leaders.
Learning has been aided and the opportunity equation has changed as a result of the Miller Institute's commitment to youth and education.

The Miller Institute for Learning is an unbiased organization whose goals are to help Education clients with fairness, openness and great understanding of the multiple changes of governmental rules/regulations that govern these clients funding. The Miller Institute knows the regulatory laws and do not sidestep the processes to ensure complete compliance. Best of all they are vendor agnostic, never showing favoritism. When I meet a client in need, I never fail to refer a customer to them. I know that the clients need will be individually analyzed and resolved. This is done, whether or not our firm wins the business or not

I have referred many clients to the Miller Institute. I had a client in particular that was absolutely frightened of changes. The Miller institute handled their hands throughout the process and today they have the network they need.

The Miller Institute for Learning has been an invaluable partner for the California Charter Schools Conference. The institute has run our Cyber Cafe for many years and has provided an extraordinary level of customer service to our attendees. In addition, we rely heavily on the institute to present sessions each year that are vital to charter schools in California. The leadership and staff at the institute have a fantastic ``can do'' attitude and elevate every project where they are involved.

I think it would be great if the organization were able to grow and offer even more resources to our schools.

We are a small business who's computer systems were all set up by The Miller Institute for Learning. For years they handled our growth and IT needs with full responsiveness and a concern towards saving us money. We highly recommend them for schools and non-profits which is their area of expertise especially with security.

The Great!

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

They set up our IT systems and servers and provided IT tech support while we were a growing company. We arrived at a stage where they could not provide the level of support we required but they were excellent in the many years that they served us.

Ways to make it better...

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

They probably have this now but a tracking system that would be public to us of all of the computers/servers that we used.
