Touch Typing with TypingMaster
Feature Spotlight: Keyboard Kickstart
By turning their keyboard into a gaming board, Keyboarding Kickstart teaches touch typing basics in a gently challenging and totally engaging way that doesn’t overstimulate. The colorful games feature fish, fruit and arrows that children catch with specific fingers while on-screen hands set a visual example which to imitate. Kids progress from focusing on only a few fingers on one hand all the way to all ten fingers engaged on the keyboard.Children are gently guided in proper form as they improve the fine motor skills that are essential to successful touch typing. Although the course focuses on finger movement, not learning letter keys, the letters do appear to help kids associate the two. The basic skills they learn will serve as a springboard for the touch-typing exercises that they’ll find in the Junior Course.
