Typing tutorials are rarely captivating, but this one is an exception! The site walks students through a series of twelve activities that work every section of the keyboard. Each activity begins with a warm-up, then progresses through left and right hand exercises. In the process, students receive coaching and kudos from an unforgettable cast of characters. Keyboarding class will never be quite the same! (The emphasis is on hand position and accuracy, not speed.)The site uses FLASH or you can click for the NON-Flash version.

In the Classroom

Use this entertaining tutorial in the computer lab, or at a learning station in your classroom. You may want to consider allowing students to use it when they finish other work early.
