TypeTastic is an excellent K-12 site for students learning how to Type/Keyboard. TypeTastic’s School Edition has an educational portal that allows educators to track, monitor, and assess student progress. This is a fun and great way to integrate technology into a classroom’s curriculum. TypeTastic uses over 400 innovative games, activities and drills to help teach and reinforce keyboarding/typing skills.
- Explore the Keyboard: Unique keyboard visualization splits the letters into nine color-coded groups so students see the keyboard like a map and can quickly find the correct letters.
- All Fingers Aboard: These games are designed to challenge kids to learn the fundamentals of typing. All sections are centered on finger movement, often first separated into either right- or left-hand activities, followed by more challenging games that use both hands.
- Ready, Set, Type!: Keyboarding activities take kids on an adventure through underwater coral reefs, thick jungle vegetation, and serene beach vistas to collect words and letters, with the goal of typing simple words and sentences.
- Master Those Keys: In the final step, students dig into the secrets of fluent typing, challenging themselves with more complex words, building up their typing speed, and discovering numbers and symbols.
