TYPE TO LEARN ENGAGES K-12 STUDENTS
Students have fun progressing their keyboarding skills through game-based learning.
Keyboarding is wrapped around a captivating, futuristic world of adventure where students become members of an ancient society to save the world from a major communication breakdown.
The keyboard becomes the communicator as student’s type directions to a remote control drone and lines of code to rebuild various structures.
Each activity focuses on a specific skill (i.e. speed and accuracy) with engaging animations.
Spanish ESL Support and accessibility options are available for hearing and visually impaired students.
Lessons are specifically designed to keep students engaged while they are introduced to keystrokes and learn proper technique. Type to Learn automatically adapts to the level of the student and ensures students are progressing accordingly.
TYPE TO LEARN FOR STUDENTS
Introduction to Type to Learn
“Centuries ago, a secret society called the Agents of Information was created to protect accurate information for all generations to come. Now, many centuries later, even with new technology, our world is in danger of a total communication breakdown! You have been selected to be trained as a new agent. Every agent must master the critical, lifelong skill of keyboarding. Without our group of fast and accurate typing agents, the flow of information would come to a disastrous halt!
We’re the Agents in Charge. Here is your communicator to use throughout your training. The medallion is a symbol of our society and of your progress. Your starting rank is Recruit. Good luck!”
As you progress through the lessons and pass the assessments, you earn new ranks in the society: The Agents of Information.
Society Ranks: Beginner/Recruit, Helper/Trainee, Assistant, Leader/Technician, Specialist
Expert, Master Agent"
