How I Use It
During computer lab class or at home during spare time, students can go on this website and have fun while learning simultaneously. It had fun characters for the young audience, and the audio was encouraging and helpful.
My Take
I love this website so much and would continue to use it for any elementary school classroom, or for teaching students with disabilities. It is entertaining and teaches children quickly and effectively. I especially like that there is an option to have the keyboard on the screen, and it points out what key you selected, and whether it was correct or not. Super fun and would recommend to any teacher that does not already use it, or for people who need practice typing in general.
