How I Use It
I teach each keystroke at the whole class level and then students participate briefly in guided practice. This program is for those who students who are ready to practice at an independent level, and as a warm-up beforeteaching the next lesson.
My Take
I think it is a great practice tool. It does not teach students new techniques, but it does allow for practice at their own speen and level of those skills that have been taught. It can be accessed quickly and is effective even when there is only a short period of time available.
