Teaching Through the Keyboard

Being a teacher is hard enough when you have to get a whole class on the same page about the basics of math. When it comes to typing, many teachers are struggling to find the best ways to get students engaged and interested in learning. Thankfully, software like Typesy is here to help out.

It is a daunting process to transfer from normal teaching to the digital world of typing skills for any teacher. However, Typesy is designed with all teachers in mind to get them what they need to do their job. With tracking software and progress monitoring, teachers can see where students are doing well and where they could use a helping hand. You can now help every student individually so that they feel listened to and cared for even in the digital space. Every student learns at a different pace and Typesy is here to adapt and customize their learning experience on an individual basis.

Giving children a sense of accomplishment online can be hard, but certificates of completion can encourage them to keep working and learning. Teachers can take their developed teaching skills and apply them to typing by working with Typesy to help all students.

I very much appreciate the level of customization I have as an admin. Typesy’s use of a transdiciplinary approach means I can focus on multiple subject areas within a typing lesson, unifying a topic of study while also reinforcing time for typing practice. Since Typesy has over 2,500 common-core standards-based lessons, students can learn to type while engaging in fun, differentiated lessons in science, social studies, ELA, and math.

This means students will interact with academics through typing in ways that bridge the divide between separated subjects. Students will be made to cross reference their areas of subject knowledge, creating multiple layers of learning while working on keyboarding skills.
