Students in grades 3-5 find the lessons very engaging and progress through the levels quickly. The K-2 curriculum is a bit repetitive and students become easily bored and are often frustrated with their lack of progress.
The leaderboard function is a great option to encourage students to practice. The ability to use gritcoins to purchase game time is wonderful and prevents students from spending too much time playing games and not practicing keyboarding skills.I also like the fact that you can turn the games function off when necessary. The ability to change and personalize the avatar and the background increases student engagement and the students enjoy the ability to personalize the product. Sometimes the lessons can be challenging for for younger
How I Use It
I use this product to introduce and reinforce proper keyboarding skills to K-5 elementary students. I would assign and create my own tests to assess their skills and monitor student progress.
