KidzType.com offers an innovative, simple way to teach kids to touch type: using a “dance mat.” The same way children learn to dance with “Just Dance” on their PC, they can learn to type with KidzType.
On the screen, they’re shown a keyboard and hands. The keys and the proper finger to type with flash, showing them what to do. Just like a game, the combinations get harder until suddenly they’re typing by touch and not even noticing it.
KidzType is free! There are twelve levels to progress through. The children are led by an Angel Educator that plays along, encouraging them.
The future is typewritten. Whether your child chooses to be a doctor, a lawyer, a computer programmer, or a carpenter, they need to know how to type well. Typing well means they can type by touch (without looking) and quickly.
Using KidzType, as soon as your children are old enough to type, you can get them started on “playing” to learn to type.
Part of a trend called “gamified learning,” KidzType takes advantage of the fact that children have a natural play instinct. It’s how they learn about their world. Gamifying typing makes it fun to do and learn while teaching them a skill they’ll need for the rest of their lives.
KidzType was created by parents, educators, and programmers who recognize the need to give children every advantage. That’s why they’ve made it free to learn. The team’s commitment is to teaching children valuable skills as early as possible.
