Typing Instructor Web for Kids is an innovative online program that teaches kids, ages 6 to 12, to type on an exciting adventure on Typer Island, in English and Spanish. This program is all about fun; packed with education, entertainment, and motivation, to give students a great experience when they learn to keyboard.
Kids begin their adventure on Typer Island where they learn all keyboard basics following one of 11 age and grade appropriate Typing Plans. Step-by-step lessons, challenges, tests, games, and rewards motivate students to type their way around the Island. Students visit all five lands on the island during their adventure, each presenting new keys to learn and typing challenges and games. Once they reach the Castle they conquer the Island, become the ruler, and become Touch-Typists! They can choose additional activities only found in the Castle and go to the mysterious underwater Lost City, and play Treasures of the Sunken City to find the four crown jewels needed to complete their treasure chest.
Typing Instructor Web for Kids provides young students with a fully-integrated learning experience. This robust application is unlike many stand alone, a la carte typing programs. The keyboarding curriculum follows the standards outlined by the National Education Technology Standards (NETS), and the Common Core Standards.
