3 Apps to Help You Teach Typing

 

teach typingGrowing up, my parents had a WWII-era typewriter that I’d peck out two-finger stories on; then in middle school there was the sweat-inducing typing tests we were issued on the Apple IIe. There was no typing software, only a teacher armed with a yard stick. On one end of the ruler, she’d attach a sheet of black construction paper. Then she’d stand back with a stop watch, cover our hands with her crude contraption and command us to type out Dick-and-Jane-style passages from the sheet she rigged to the side of the monitor. I’m probably making it sound more traumatic than it really was, but needless to say, I would have taken any of the following three typing apps over the yardstick any day!

3 Apps to Help You Teach Typing

teach typing 2TypingWeb
In no specific order, here’s everything you need to know about Typing Web:

  • It’s free
  • It aligns with Common Core Standards Preparation
  • There’s no limit to how many students can use it
  • Teachers can create, track, group, and manage their students’ progress from the web
  • You can monitor your students in real time
  • You can access and export detailed reporting data
  • Students learn to type by playing fun and interactive typing games and daily news headlines exercises
  • When students complete a lesson, they earn a trophy for their personal trophy case
  • Free (and unlimited) certificates are available for both General typists and 10 key certifications.
  • As each student progresses, TypingWeb learns which keys cause them the most difficulty and creates custom lessons focusing on their top five most troublesome letters
  • Students can repeat the typing test to track their progress over time

Although Dance Mat won’t keep a detailed record of your students’ typing progress, it’s a worthy mention for the simple fact that it takes a potentially tedious activity and transforms it into a game.

The game itself doesn’t make a lot of sense, but I’m a 32-year-old man and I’m amused by it. So why wouldn’t your elementary students be? It’s the typist’s mission to help baby chicks hatch; whenever you successfully complete a typing sequence, a chick is liberated from an egg. Don’t mistype though, or you’ll be scolded by your coach, a Southern-drawlin’ Rooster.

We saved the best for last. Students can improve their typing skills while competing in fast-paced races with typists from around the world. The more races you win, the more digital cash you receive. Spend your rewards at the dealership where you can purchase new cars and nitros so you can skip words while racing.
