Technical training materials for the younger audience

If you develop technical training material or you are a technical trainer, you may be able to answer this week's TechRepublic forum question concerning age-appropriate training materials. See if you can help!

Do you develop training materials? Do you have experience teaching technical courses to middle and high school audiences? If you do, you might be able to help a TechRepublic reader find age-appropriate technical training materials and win 150 TechPoints.

S. Phillip’s Forum question
S. Phillips wrote us recently to ask for help in locating Microsoft training materials geared toward middle schoolers. S. Phillips wrote:

“I teach Microsoft Office to middle school students as one of their regular academic subjects. I have been unable to find a textbook or other materials appropriate for this age range. They are not interested in typing business letters or calculating cost of inventory, etc. Also, the language in the materials I've found (Microsoft Press, etc.) is often at a reading level beyond that of a sixth grader. Does anyone know of training materials and/or practice exercises for this age level?”
