How to facilitate proper touch typing technique?

As teacher, what advice can you give during a typing class?


If you and your kids approach this learning experience like work, it will feel like work. Make a game out of it! Reward your students for progress, and use difficulties as an opportunity to get better. Our software offers lessons from typing experts and all kinds of gadgets to diagnose your typing speed, but we also offer lots of fun games that will make your experience easier and more enjoyable.

Hi there, @georgianachang!

As a teacher, the best thing you can do is offer as much time for practice as possible. Consistent practice is the key to mastery!

If you are utilizing Typesy, you as a teacher won’t have to do much at all (which, as a teacher myself, is always welcome!). Students are engaged through a variety of gamified lessons in which they earn rewards, up their game status, and work towards custom goals. Students build their own avatars and practice typing through fun, interactive lessons. Additionally, Typesy adapts to each learner, so no student will ever find themselves with lessons too easy or too difficult. You can be assured your students are working with differentiated lessons, completely suited to their learning needs.

Lastly, it’s important to remember that typing practice does not need to be a mundane task! Utilize typing games to keep students engaged, and before you know it, students will be begging to practice their keyboarding skills. Aside from keeping lessons fun, typing games allow students to track their progress, happily focus on areas of weakness, and practice their hand-eye coordination, a skill much needed in touch typing.

Stay positive, keep them motivated, and your students will be masters of touch typing in no time!
