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
The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology is an amazing organization. They do so much for schools, and ask for so little in return. I have had the pleasure of working with the team there for several years, and my experience has always been positive and inspiring. Thank you so much!
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.
Thank you so much! We're working on that growing thing!
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.
Thanks for the thoughtful review! Nowadays, for clients where there is interest, we set up a shared repository for relevant documentation such as inventories of equipment. This probably would be ideal for what you have in mind. Anyway, thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Sincerely, Mark (Mark L. Miller, Ph.D., Executive Director)
The Miller Institute for Learning hosted a demonstration booth at the State Fair last year in the Industrial & Technology Education Building. Visiting fair-goers loved playing with, and learning about, the robots! Their organization is very professional and efficient to work with and their booth was so much fun.
Our family LOVES the Mark Miller Institute. I think it is now 3 years that my grandson has been attending the Institute's summer camp. My grandson has learned so much. For me personally, what stands high above everything is how my grandson 'feels' about himself. I believe his relationship to Mark and the other camp leaders helped my grandson know he has a place in the world- He was able to freely communicate his thoughts and ideas about technology and robotics and be received with warmth, interest and encouragement. THIS is key to everything. Thank You- Mark Miller Institute. My grandson loves all of you and you'll be one of the remembered highlights of his childhood. SForte
Wow, thank you, you truly made my day!
My son attended their summer class in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. He's been into Lego robotics ever since and is in a robotics after-school program this Fall. I wish the Learning Institute would partner with local schools to make the schools' robotics programs more robust.
We are always very appreciative when someone takes the time to write a few kind words about our programs. We are also happy to note that we are offering many after school programs in the Bay area, in partnership with local schools as well as cities. We are excited to share that we just learned that our team, the San Mateo County Community STEM Alliance (a partnership with Pacifica, Half Moon Bay and San Carlos as well as our colleagues at Coastside STEM) has been selected for a grant, reaching out to under-served students in several areas of the County. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with our friends in RWC, such as North Star Academy, as well.
We started our relationship with The Miller Institute on recommendation from some charter school associates in California. They did such a wonderful job showing me the ropes of dealing with the E-Rate process, that I didn't require much assistance applying in our second year of successful funding. However, I so thoroughly enjoyed working with them, that I invited them to develop a technology leadership training institute for our 4 charter schools' administrators. It worked out wonderfully, our school administrators have increased their buy-in to the strengths of technology integration in both classroom teaching and teaching evaluation. We even have an administrator now recording lesson delivery and using the recordings to coach and mentor his teachers.
Miller Institute has been instrumental in getting our plans in place so that we could submit fundable applications for E-Rate. After several years of failed attempts, Miller Institute has help us to develop tech plans and to develop an internal protocal to ensure that our "steps to E-Rate success" are in place. Mark and his crew are very knowledgable and responsive. There are also very nice individuals and are a pleasure to work with!
The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology has worked with Fenton Avenue Charter School and the Fenton Primary Center, two charter schools in the Lake View Terrace, a suburb of Los Angeles. The institute has assisted us in writing and receiving approval for E-Rate (Education Rate) plans that allow our schools to provide a level of technology to our 1,450 students far and above anything seen or available at a typical school within our authorizing district (Los Angeles Unified). The Miller Institute is more than knowledgeable,they are true experts in the field of educational technology and their recommendations and insight have allowed our schools to remain competitive and successful, while serving our community well.
