TypeKids is an online typing course, which helps children easily learn touch-typing, which is the ability to type using all ten fingers as well as the ability to find the computer keys blindly, without looking at the keyboard. My kids are still little, but upon completing the free trial, I determined that I absolutely need this course myself! With the way computers started to dominate our children’s world, typing is a mandatory skill to master early.
TypeKids is a 30- lesson course, full of kid-friendly animations, which is designed like a treasure hunt where the participant is led by a character named Captain Forty.
Upon the completion of the TypeKids course, your child’s typing speed should increase up to 5 times. This means that they should be able to type in half the time it took them prior to taking this course. If certain letters require more practice, this flexible course can be changed so that there is more focus on those problematic letters.
To get started, you can register at TypeKids to take the first three lessons of the course for free.
