Grades used: 7th and 8th (but they go through 12th)
Years used: 2016-2017
Technology was an area of concern for me, since I’m not a ‘Techie’ person. I was introduced to this program at the Florida Parent Educators Association (FPEA) conference in Orlando, Florida. I have a middle school aged daughter and I wanted to introduce her to technology but really didn’t know where to start. The Techknow Training curriculum had more courses than I could imagine. Frankly, I didn’t really know what most of them were, but they helped me understand which courses would be a good starting point for my daughter. They also have a clear path for growth as she gets older, which made me happy as well. Getting started was easy and their courses are online videos which have individual modules and quizzes. I also received a free parent account which allows me to monitor my daughter’s activity/grades while taking the courses myself. This was something new and I thought a very good idea. Anyway, I’ve found their support to be excellent and very responsive (they offer online chat and remote support). The staff is very friendly and my daughter has learned so much so far. I just wanted to take the time to support a good product and company, as they’ve been great to us.
