It is very easy to create your own lesson plans. When you home school, the whole world becomes your classroom :
How children Learn
Lesson Plans that Motivate
I like to use both. My sons are also taking computer science. I think it is important to well versed in both mediums. I love books and so do my children. They also enoy doing things on the computer as well.
Find out your student's best learning styles and levels in most subjects by using POC4U
Then pick curriculum pieces (some of which are detailed and suggested by POC4U for those levels and learning styles. This one resource can be used each year and for every student. It helped our homeschooling get so much better.

What do you need help with specifically?

Christian or secular?
We use HOD. The only electronics I am just starting to use on a daily basis is a Kindle. Believe me, my dd spends enough time on the computer playing games. I think she'd get distracted by subjects taught online. She'd be off on another site in a heartbeat playing a game. She has learned to type on her own, at a blazing speed, and I will allow her to use the word processor to write some of her assignments. She will also use a few online encyclopedias for research starting this year. Otherwise, I see no need to incorporate it at this time.
Now, my son used an ipad in public school last year. I can see the benefits of accessing online assignments, textbooks, etc. However, we don't need that, with a class of one. Having a resource to watch videos is attractive. Maybe as time goes on, I'll change my mind. LOL
Quoting celticdragon77:What do you need help with specifically?
I like to use both plus educational DVDs.
