How does Typesy help in teaching keyboarding in schools?
Hi! Typesy knows how important it is for students to do well on these tests, and that is why the proper curriculum is used to teach along with the keyboarding. Most testing is done on the computer now, so even if a student has all the answers they will not do well if they cannot articulate those answers through typing.
Typesy is motivating and fun for students while also allowing them to see real results in a way they can understand at any age. The fun animated odometers and clear graphs showing improvement will keep them moving forward while the trophies and awards help create an atmosphere of achievement. Typesy cares about each student, and these features allow the students to feel like they matter.
As a teacher, you will have access to and control over every aspect of your students’ experience from lessons to assignments to assessments. Monitor class and individual student progress, assign customizable tests, and relax as Typesy does the grading for you!
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.
To me, Typesy offers the same as most typing programs, it’s just a lot more fun! Students are engaged and teachers can focus on the students instead of the curriculum thanks to the automated and adaptable nature of the program. Especially now! With the uncertainty of next school year, now is probably a better time than most to make use of programs like Typesy. I can rest easy knowing wherever my students are come September, they can continue their Typesy studies no matter what!
