Dr. Miller is a living legend. He studied under Seymour Papert who created Logo and the Turtle teaching robot at the beginning of (computer education ) time. Dr. Miller teaches with a huge smile showing his caring. His camp curricula is so much more ambitious than others giving kids access to several languages, approaches to controlling and sensing things and getting them to build something real ... in a short class. His expertise and experience makes him great at teaching teachers, students, setting up IT for schools and be a scientist too.These are the reasons I joined his board of directors
I just wanted to thank you one more time for including Bobby in your class. He had a great time and learned a lot, in fact, he used his compass to help direct us back home after Friday's class! We all really enjoyed looking at all the projects, and you could tell the kids were having a great time.
I'm glad we got to meet, even if it was just to say hello, and it was easy to see how much you and all the other teachers care about the students.
Take care and keep up the excellent work.
I have worked with them and delivered some technology for them to let the kids build and create. I have found the team to be top notch and very good with the kids and enjoy their confidence. This allows the kids to explore, fail, fix and learn.
Honored to come across this unsolicited review by one of the greats in our field.
The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology has had such positive impact for students throughout the region. From technology infrastructure to hands-on learning, this NGO has opened doors for students and inspired our young learners.
As a 6th grade teacher, I can't say enough about Learning Tech. I started working with this organization 5+ years ago. They are the organization that helped us run a truly innovative math/STEM curriculum throughout the district. The curriculum was developed using SketchUp.org and my students couldn't get enough of this program.
Additionally, I have been working with Learning Tech this past year with their after school Makers Space program here at Ingrid B. Lacy Middle school. This program started out small, but has deservedly grown over these past months! Learning Tech started the program small, all the while listened to the students, asking them repeatedly what they wanted from this program. They let the students shape this program, gave them a voice, let them determine what they wanted to invent, investigate, build, etc. As a result, students started to join our little after school program. We are now up to 20 students, and we are growing!
Learning Tech not only brings years of STEM knowledge and field experience to my students, but they also bring an infectious energy to learn and build.

Excellent... I only have wonderful things to say about the Miller Institute this organization has provided foster children from San Mateo County with generous scholarships so that they can attend STEM camps enriching their lives as they learn and enjoy it! . I have nothing but positive feedback after the camp and staff . I have social workers making sure their kids get that opportunity to go. Please continue your excellent work
Such a great camp that they put on for children. The STEM camp taught the kids I work with so much and has increased their interest in technology.
I work with foster youth. Stem Camp really inspired one young man that I work with. I watched him blossom and laugh and become very intellectually inspired while at the camp. On the last day, when all the parents come, he ran around the room showing me his mechanical arm that picked up candy when he pressed a button. He was so proud and his smile was huge. It was amazing to watch my foster youth demonstrate his creative invention with confidence and I believe it helped his self esteem as well.
I’m a Middle School teacher and was looking for STEM related Robotics Kits for my robotics Elective Course. I was grateful that I was able to check out EV3 Mindstorms Kits and Cubelets from our San Mateo County of Education Office STEM Center, free of charge for our student instruction. I later found out that it was made possible by The Miller Institute of Technology, a.k.a The Learningtech.org. Dr. Erickson and Dr.Miller are very passionate about providing equitable digital access to all students. With their valuable partnership, our students were able to work with Stanford Professors in an innovative NSF Grant project. By their generous scholarships, our students were able to attend and learn Coding and robotics through their high-tech, STEM-oriented summer camps. We’re so fortunate to have the support of non-profit organization like the Miller Institute that help and motivate our students and educators. I wish and hope they’ll continue to support our community for many more years!
As a Board member, I can't say enough about the work that Miller Institute does for Education.
The provide opportunities to bring additional, much needed funding into the classroom & have directed programs that focus on the under-served student population in technology education.
I'm proud to be a Board member of this organization!
This is a quality organization that does great work! They saved our school when in turmoil due the sudden death of of Technology Director and have been exceptional partners since 1999. When asked to join their Board of Directors, I considered it an honor. I recommend The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology without reservation and with great enthusiasm!
I'm a technology educator and I was highly impressed with the professionalism shown by the Miller Institute. The kids were fully engaged and were having a great time.
I have known Miller Institute staff for several decades now, having worked with them on previous projects, and supported their work in various capacities over the years. Miller Institute staff are exceptional in their services and highly dedicated to the mission of engaging youth and schools in meaningful technology use in education.
Mark and the rest of the crew have great STEM programs for kids and really care about schools and non-profits making the best possible use of technology.
We have known of Mark Miller's ground-breaking work with young people for almost two decades. His methodology, his insights, and his vision motivate us to want to continue our collaborative work with him, so that through media, his templates can reach a far wider audience.
Led by Dr. Mark Miller, the Miller Institute for Learning with Technology has been a pioneering innovator in helping K-12 school set up affordable internet access. We look forward to a continuing relationship in expanding computer science curricula to all students.
They have worked hard to ensure that foster youth are included in summer enrichment programs for STEAM, notably computational thinking, making, and robotics. I admire their passion for bringing these skills to ALL kids.. I have known them for a long time, and I am impressed how they have dedicated their lives and careers to helping kids and furthering education
The Miller Institute has lots of expertise and passion to get children excited about (Lego) robotics.
Wonderful program for my CASA youth. He learned so much and loved going to the program. This was all made possible by the grant he was given to attend.
Thank you so much.
A double-barrel provider of technology support for education from e-Rate support to successful computer science programs for students. Proud to support this great organization.
The Institutes work with school districts has in most cases exceeded their expectations. On top of that, the Institutes work on providing opportunities for targeted youth to gain experience with technology provides a mind-opening for them to realize there is a world out there it which they an succeed both now and in their adult futures. What more can you ask for?
Mark and the skilled, passionate and intellectual team at Learningtech are amongst the best in tech education. They are always looking to find the best methods of education and refreshing their toolkit to provide the most meaningful and relevant experiences for their students. These are people who care and work hard to create positive impact.
