Dear Otto is an occasional column where I answer questions I get from readers about teaching tech. If you have a question, please complete the form below and I’ll answer it here. For your privacy, I use only first names.
Here’s a great question I got from Rusty:
When will the Tech Curriculum textbooks for 7th and 8th grades be available?
Great question, so I checked with the folks at Structured Learning. Their estimate:
- 7th Grade: out in July 2013
- 8th Grade: out in late summer/early fall 2013
