I want to keep my students motivated when they have good results in their typing activity. Please give me some idea how to do this.
Use available monitoring and reports to congratulate students on their responsibility and mastery. And make that positive reinforcement concrete: print personal certificates of achievement congratulating each student on their progress at keyboarding.

It is likely that students in your class will be at differing levels of typing proficiency. There are many ways to keep your advanced students engaged while you focus your attention on your struggling students. Consider hosting competitions for highest WPM or accuracy, allow your most advanced students to tutor less experienced classmates, or challenge your adept typists by blindfolding them or covering the letters on their keyboard. Having a few ideas up your sleeve will ensure your skilled typists don’t become bored and distracting to others who need time to practice.
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.
And as always, you can harness the power of friendly competition! You would just have to make sure to be careful - we wouldn’t want the competition’s “losers” to disengage from learning!
