TechyKids for Schools

About TechyKids

The TechyKids System has been developed by Sharon Marzouk over the past few years, learning from her 7+ years teaching technology to kids.  It was developed actively in the classroom.  It flips the classroom to be project based, changing the teacher’s role from delivering content to being able to work more closely with kids on helping with their unique projects and managing the classroom environment more effectively.
