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 have interacted with this team, both personally and as a business owner, for many years. They demonstrate great dedication to their mission and I hope they continue to serve their community for many more years.
Learningtech uses a hands-on approach to teach computer science. They reach out to at-risk kids and provide aid when needed.
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.
I am very pleased to say that I have had a very positive 5+ year relationship with the Miller Institute for Learning with Technology partnering with them in all levels of grant funded STEM program delivery. I have the upmost respect for Mark, Len and their staff, and can only say good things about them!
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!
I have worked with Mark Miller and Learningtech for a number of years now and they are very honest people who work hard and are passionate about education and the quality of their program delivery. I have been very impressed by Mark and the rest of the staff.
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 have had outstanding experiences working with Learning Tech over the course of the past 10+ years. I would recommend them to any school or institution looking to add enrichment programs or for general support in technology implementation.
The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology (Learning Tech) is a great organization that I am proud be associated with and to recommend to others.
Learning Tech has a great deal of expertise, is easy to work with and is a great value to Education.
They keep students first and have helped many non-profit organizations receive much needed services and federal funding to sustain their educational goals.
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!
The Miller Institute helps us navigate the murky waters of Erate which helps Valley Preparatory Academy obtain funding for technology for staff and students.
Mark and his staff are very compassionate about increasing student's academic self-efficacy using STEM. Great program!
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.
