Teaching Typing for Non-Teachers

We are currently homeschooling and wanted our kids to learn how to type properly. How do you start teaching your kid’s typing with Typesy?

To start with, kindly create an account for them and add them to a class. Once added, have them logged in on a separate or the same device with their username and password.

It would be best to direct them with their daily activity. Like “finish 5 lessons for today, the rest will be games”. Set a timeframe of 10-30 mins per day when using the program.

If practiced consistently on a daily basis, your kids’ typing skills are bound to improve dramatically in a matter of weeks. With Typesy, since each lesson is customized to its learner, the length of time needed for mastery varies. Typesy is designed to monitor each student’s progress and adapt to their skill level, and there are plenty of lessons available to ensure every learner has the time they need to succeed.

The program will begin by teaching your children the proper finger positions. Each finger has assigned letters based on the positioning of the hand over the keyboard. The middle row on a QWERTY keyboard will serve as the home row, the starting position for each finger. When typing, each finger has an assigned zone of keys, each requiring a movement of one or two keys away from home. After a finger has moved to type a letter, it will return to its home position.

The rest of the program stands to commit these movements to muscle memory. After enough practice, your kids’ fingers will be moving instinctively while their eyes can focus away from the keys.
