We know that kids entering kindergarten have already been exposed to devices for about two years. When they were three or four a device was shoved in front of them to make them quiet at a restaurant or while waiting in a line somewhere. Over the ensuing two years they learned how to form some semblance of input language, but don’t get that confused with actual typing or keyboarding.

Typing Club is an important part of elementary education. Sure we all knew how to write with a pen or pencil, or at least draw lines, and in some cases letters, on a piece of paper when we entered school, but we spent at least a good hour a day learning how to correctly write. And that was boring.

Typing Club makes learning to type and keyboard correctly fun, by immersing students in games and challenges piquing their interest in learning to type the right way. In fact our 10 year old edtech reporter, Tatum F, loves Typing Club.

TypingClub is the best way for students to learn touch typing. Over 23 million students, from 50,000 schools and districts with 300,000 teachers have learned to type using TypingClub.

Students in grades 3 and up can go through a variety of fun typing games and activities that teach them the proper way to type, from the way to hold their hands to how to find the bumps on the keys.

TypingClub’s school edition provides teachers with the ability to have complete control over your students’ typing progress.

They provide over 600 comprehensive lesson plans that guide students from individual keys through numbers and punctuation with a goal of 75 wpm. Lessons include instructional videos, educational games, practice of challenging and commonly misplaced words and other interactive experiences.

Don’t fall for other imposters, you’ll want your students to learn with the real TypingClub. Find them at ISTE 2018 in Chicago, June 14-28th, booth #5121 and online at typingclub.com
