Keyboarding

Give Your Students the Key to Success

As most educators know, many assessments now require students, starting as early as third grade, to write online. Yet, many students in third grade can’t type with proper technique, or without looking down at the keyboard. Our prescriptive keyboarding lessons measure existing speed and accuracy, and automatically assigns instruction that adapts to each student’s individual needs.

Our Keyboarding Lessons:

  • Give students the structure of daily keyboarding practice which is proven to improve accuracy and speed
  • Prepare students for success on online assessments like PARCC and Smarter Balanced
  • Cover foundational keyboarding concepts like QWERTY hand positioning, basic shortcuts and commands
  • Engage students with interactive lessons and games
  • Help teachers quickly review time spent on practice, speed and accuracy in real-time to determine improvement rates and offer instruction
