Hi,As a teacher, you should continue to structure opportunities with no-judgement, noncompetitive peer sharing, support, and tutoring. Also, regularly have class discussions where students can talk about the proper keyboarding techniques they’re learning and can ask questions about the process.
Community Associate at Typesy
If using Typesy, you can rest assured the program is plenty interactive. 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.
If you are hoping to customize the program even further, Typesy allows you to load in your own text, perfect for targeting specific subject areas while also practicing keyboarding.
Perhaps you want to expand typing lessons out into the classroom? If you are looking to get kids interacting - to cut down on unending screen time - consider hosting friendly competitions or pairing students to allow for proficient typists to mentor those struggling. There are plenty of ways to mix it up and get typing class working for you as a teacher!
