How I Use It
Typing practice tool for elementary school students used in computer lab. Most appropriate for K-2, still attractive for 3-5. Friendly animation motivates learners to use as enrichment after tasks are complete and they have time left. Promoted for individual practice in school and at home.
My Take
No customization, no data tracking and no assessment tools make this a great tool for keyboard beginners, not so much for advanced as there is no accountability.
