Hi! It’s Wednesday, January 2, 2013 and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 9 and up (approximately, with parental supervision)
ClickScholar Rita suggested this ad-supported website that offers a complete typing course (for beginners to advanced students) absolutely free! (Registration is required.)
The program supports all major international keyboard formats, and displays key position and proper finger placement to help keep beginners from looking at their hands. In addition to practice exercises, there are several typing games that reinforce skills while they entertain.
Helpful tips are constantly provided to reinforce proper typing techniques.Typing tests are provided and students can track their progress with detailed graphs and statistics. As a student progresses, the program “learns” which keys cause the most difficulty and creates custom lessons focusing on the student’s top 5 most troublesome letters. When a student completes a lesson, they earn a virtual trophy.
As I mentioned, this program is ad-supported which is why it’s free. If you don’t want the ads displayed, there is a reasonable fee-option to remove the ads.
