How it will benefit students?

TypingClub helps students learn how to type while having an engaging and interactive experience.

TypingClub offers students an interactive experience with games, videos and different typing challenges that makes typing fun. 

TypingClub's games are unique, engaging, and challenging. Each of the customizable games focuses on building specific typing skills. Students can learn touch typing with hundreds of lessons in Spanish, French and German, including games, videos and the entire student experience in the same languages.

It also has a practice calendar which shows total practice time, number of attempts per day, and total attempts for each week, as well as a punchcard that shows activity by day and hour. TypingClub’s School Edition offers many lesson plans including QWERTY and DVORAK keyboards, left and right hand typing, and many languages including Spanish, French, and Italian. This edition is also SSL secured, has no advertisements, and can be used on an iPad.

If you’re looking for more than just typing games for kids, this is a great series of lessons to consider. It’s free, you don’t need to create an account, and it’s engaging, interactive, and fun. Kids learn proper hand posture, and they must practice each lesson until they earn 5 stars before progressing to the next level. They also offer an option for younger kids called Jungle Junior where children learn about the alphabet, sight words, word families, and simple sentences.
