Testimonials

Here are some quotes from Idaho Teachers and Students:

Idaho teacher, Dr. Melyssa Ferro had some wonderful comments about using Learning Blade before and during the COVID19 school shutdowns. See her video interview."Thank you to the Idaho STEM Action Center for proving Learning Blade to help show our students careers in STEM and Computer Science."

Nancy Love, Teacher, Bonneville Online High School“I learned so much about new careers that I'd never heard of before. The math problems were hard and challenging but I love math so now I know some different careers that use math and how they use it.”
Student, Sandcreek Middle School

"In computer science, students have the option to select Learning Blade as one of the activities that they do in a semester. They go through the mission(s) of their choice at their own pace during that time frame."
Terry Silveus, Computer Science/Robotics Teacher, Buhl Middle School

"I enjoy the ability in Learning Blade to find almost any topic that the students are interested in and seeing how it ties to STEM."
Casey Boothby, STEM Teacher, Vision Charter School

"I like the variety of tasks students need to complete. I like that it hits all learners through the use of videos, audio attached to the reading and tasks to complete."
Janelle Seedall, Career Explorations, Rocky Mountain Middle School
