How I Use It
We started using QwertyTown last year in grades 3-6 and it has totally revamped our keyboarding and digital literacy programs. One of the best things about QwertyTown is that it's totally customizable for individual schools, classes and all way down to specific student needs. The program does an outstanding job of mixing learning with gamification of keyboarding.
My Take
When we started using QwertyTown we used it primarily in school during free time, technology class and homework...but the students are so engaged with it that they started using it on their own so much that we had to limit how much they were using it because some students were going so far ahead of their classes.
