An excellent software program teaching Touch Typing. Computers play an ever increasing role in today’s technological world. To prepare our students for this new world they are being introduced to computers at an ever decreasing age. It teaches Primary age students to use a keyboard correctly. It does so by blending tried and tested traditional teaching methods with the entertaining and interactive capabilities of a modern computer program. Keyboarding is a perceptual motor skill. It involves perceiving and then doing, and once learnt it is relatively easy to retain. The student is taken on an underwater journey with the assistance of Qwerty, the submarine’s resident penguin. They learn to touch type in short, simple stages. Practice activities such as conducting the Marine Orchestra and defending the submarine from the Crab Invaders, increase keyboarding skills in a fun and absorbing way. Once the basic lessons are mastered, the program offers a speed and accuracy test to give students/teachers a traditional benchmark on which to judge their progress. (Product Description)
