Learningtech.org is a 501(c)(3) California nonprofit, public benefit corporation. Our mission is to help people use technology more effectively for learning. We provide educational technology consulting services and hands-on learning opportunities. We emphasize student achievement and equitable access. We create innovative solutions to facilitate teaching and learning. We work in a variety of K-12 contexts, including: traditional public schools, charter schools and charter management organizations, parochial schools, independent schools, other nonprofit groups providing services to youth and the community. We offer after-school and in-school enrichment programs, professional development for educators, and summer camps.

Our core competencies include Computer Science (including coding and computational thinking), Robotics, 3D Design and Technology. Our enrichment programs also feature other aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics [STEM], as well as technology-enabled digital/media Arts. Depending on the venue and offering, our target audience ranges from spring term Kindergarten through high school, including exploratory coding and robotics programs for children as young as grades 1-3 and a UC A-G approved Computer Science elective. We also offer Professional Development programs for educators, often at the San Mateo County Office of Education. We stress self-paced, technology-rich, hands-on activities and projects with a low ratio of students to instructors. We try to foster positive attitudes toward STEM, confidence, competency, self-esteem, curiosity, lifelong learning, collaboration, resilience, and other 21st century workforce skills.

Our full, legal name is The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology. Our web site is at http://learningtech.org and our camp/workshop offerings are described at http://learningtech.org/workshops. All of our paid programs feature scholarships for students with financial need. We also provide free programs supported by grants, including San Mateo County's Human Services Agency, the Clive Family Foundation, and private donations.
