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!

LearningTech has been a most excellent consultancy not only by educating me in all things eRate related but also as a resource of seeing the way forward to the best possible outcomes for my School District. Their expertise, patience & understanding has paved the way towards success for us. Everyone at LearningTech but especially Tom Wilkerson has been wonderful! Often Tom is one step ahead of me, helping to lead me where I need to go before I even know the way - he guides me, teaches me how to consider our options & providing great clarity in an eRate process of unknown murkiness. LearningTech & Tom keep me afloat so well! Thank you!

I am so thankful to you guys for what you did for my son. He loved the class and still remembers everything he has learned and still wants to go back. I am happy to help another child, as you did for us. I hope to be able to keep supporting your program because I know the impact it had on my son. Thank you!

I've had a long-standing interest in the MIller Institute, partly driven by my own preofessional insterests in the connections between developing technologies and their impact on, and usefulness for improving education. In short, this Dr. Miller and his colleagues continue to achieve the highest level results for the students whom they help. More generally, their work provides path-breaking examples of approaches that can be used by others interested in using advanced technology to improve education.

The Miller Institute offers programs and camps to teach coding for modding Minecraft and controlling robots. While they're having fun, kids are learning real-world technology skills like programming and building circuits. My sons have attended their summer camps and have really enjoyed them!

Mark Miller and his organization, The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology represents the very highest standards in all realms. The immense help that his org has delivered to students, teachers and admin to get and use technology for learning is worthy of a Nobel Prize. The tirelessness of Mr. Miller with the single minded focus on helping stakeholders in the educational milieu use technology to improve learning is truly phenomenal. It has been my honor to witness some of the varied work that Mr. Miller's organization has performed in schools and have to say its nothing short of miraculous. Seeing children light up as they successfully program a robot, build their own computer or really have one of those AHA moments with technology that is life changing and helps set them on a STEM path demonstrates how much we need MORE organizations and increased funding for organizations such as The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology!

Mark Miller and the word integrity are synonymous for me. He is one of the most honorable people that I know and also one of the most brilliant. His work helping schools with technology through the Miller Institute is well known. The list of what he has accomplished within the field of Educational Technology is significant but he is humble and self deprecating about it. Mark is one of the few people I would characterize as a true genius because not only does he have a remarkably high IQ, but he has harnessed that intelligence into helping others and making the world a better place. Mark was a mentor for me when I was a classroom teacher back in the 90's in Daly City California. He helped me to see what was possible with technology in education. He helped my school come into the 21st century. The kids loved him because he had so much knowledge but was very approachable. Later on I was lucky to be able to for Mark for some time. I can truly say that anyone who has the chance to use the Miller Institute for Learning will be very happy that they did.

I've had the privilege of working with Learning Tech for the last (3) Three years. During this time i've learned that Learning Techs team members are some of the most knowledgeable people that I have had a chance to work with. The produce the highest quality work products and deliverables all the time. The best part is that they are still very humble and appreciative individuals and are always willing to help by sharing what they have learned from their past experiences to make the entire team better and stronger.

My son has attended several tech-related camps and programs. Learning Tech has been his best experience. He always feels comfortable, the technology he's learning is aligned with the descriptions (that's not always the case with many of these programs), and at the few times he is advanced, they adjust his program to challenge him.

My son has attended the summer camp for the past two summers. He never wants to repeat a summer camp but he enjoyed learning tech so much he returned. I like the many different subject options and all the cool perks like the 3D printer.

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!
