In a world where technology is an integral part of our daily lives, ensuring our children have a solid foundation in computer technology is crucial. As a homeschooling parent, I’ve always been on the lookout for educational opportunities that not only equip my child with essential skills but also make learning an engaging and enjoyable experience. That’s why I was so excited to be offered to learn more about MYTEK Labs and their online technology courses.
I received complimentary access and compensation for this review, but my opinions are entirely honest and unbiased.
In today’s blog post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts and experiences with this innovative course, tailored for students in grades 3-5. MYTEK LAB’s Computer Technology course promises to provide a comprehensive understanding of various technology areas, including programming, creative applications, web design, and general technology concepts.
With its elementary-level approach, it aims to set the stage for a future where technology is not just a tool but a realm of exploration and innovation.
In this review I am focusing on the introductory elementary course, MYTEK LAB offers other courses for older age levels and higher level concepts.
Why We Love MYTEK LAB
I feel that technology is such an important skill to teach our kids and having resources like MYTEK LAB are so value. The flexibility of course options my MYTEK LAB makes it super easy to add into our homeschool week.
I love having the option of having scheduled weekly online courses that are taught and led by an instructor. If you miss a class, or need extra practice, the courses are recorded and available to rewatch.
The weekly courses provide an interactive and engaging experience with the instructor and other students.
If you can’t commit to a weekly course, MYTEK LAB also offers a Flex Pace option.
Flex Pace is a highly adaptable course alternative designed to cater to students’ varying schedules. This learning approach involves weekly recorded videos and lesson releases, allowing students the convenience to engage with the course content according to their own timelines. Given the rapid and frequent evolution of technology, the potential for outdated material is a concern for learners. However, Flex Pace proactively addresses this issue by continuously updating our content, ensuring that all students have access to the most current material and instructional modules. Recordings will be released each Monday.
By releasing the recordings on a weekly basis, we ensure that students consistently benefit from up-to-date technology education that encompasses the latest advancements. Through the Flex Pace, do not have to follow assignment deadlines, allowing students additional time to work on their assignments. Flex Pace empowers students to pursue their education at their own pace, without needing to participate in a specific live class schedule.

Variety of Skills Taught
The world of technology spans so many different areas and skills. I enjoy the introduction approach to multiple skills in the Elementary Computer Technology course.
In this course my daughter was introduced to multiple topics in technology and learned a variety of skills such as:
- 2D Game Art
- 3D Modeling for Games
- VR Development
- Web Design
- 3D Printing
- & More!
The MYTEK LAB Elementary Computer Technology course not only introduces students to these skills but also fosters creativity, critical thinking, and adaptability. It’s a comprehensive foundation that empowers young minds to explore, innovate, and prepare for a future where technology plays an ever-expanding role.
MYTEK LAB Course Experience
The online portal for both students and parents is extremely easy to use! My 3rd grader is able to access her courses with limited help and is provided great instruction during her course. She loves the interactive projects and the live help from her instructor!
The lessons start with a video portion with the instructor teaching concepts and providing interactive examples of the topic and project they are working on.
The classes last around 1 hour. The instructor explains the assignment that needs to be completed prior to the next class. In the live sessions your child can ask for assistance if they need any.
As this is a year long course, the students work on a project for a weeks building on one concept at a time. In the first few weeks of course my daughter learned skills to build a game. The build on skills week after week and have all the tools they need to succeed!
Easy Access to Technology Applications
I’ve used other online technology courses before and sometimes they can be a bit daunting with all the additional application requirements you have to download for your child to learn.
With MYTEK LAB, they have all the applications imbedded in the course and it is beyond easy for your students to access them! During the video lessons your child is walked through how to access and use the applications. This makes this course top notch and so user friendly!
