How I Use It
Although this product is rated for grades 9-12, I I found it works great with middle school students and used it in my middle school computer classes. I used this website as a filler (to develop proper keyboarding techniques) anytime my students had extra time after completing assignments. I found that my students enjoyed both the lessons and games, Students could log in on any day or time (at home or school) and pick up where they had stopped the last time they were on the site.
I liked this tool because my students can use it in or outside the classroom (and many tell me that they do!).. Students in our district do not received proper keyboarding instruction until high school, so this is one way that I can teach/reinforce those skills. I have had parents who have asked me to recommend a keyboarding program their children can work on at home, and I have referred them to this website. Parents and children both love it.
